Question

I have a walk-in shower with a fiberglass bottom. We noticed waterspots on the downstairs kitchen. I cut a hole out of the ceiling and observed water dripping between the pvc pipe and the rubber seal lining the drain. My dilemma is the following. I have gone back and forth to Home Depot and recently to a plumbing store. I cannot find a brass drain that matches my drain. I've tried the plastic 2" pvc drains that they sell in Home depot and they won't fit into the whole where the old drain was. I don't know where to find a replacement drain. My Brass drain has the following numbers on it: NO-140-NC IAMPO. The manufactures name was CASPERS INDUSTRIES, OAKLAND, CA. Unfortunately I've searched and cannot find this company. Does anyone have a suggestion on where I can find a replacement drain that fits?

Have you removed the old drain, if you have take it with you the home depot, if still no luck you may need to call a plumber for help.

Cool

If you take the drain parts out bring it to a plumbing supply NOT Home Depot.

Thumbs up

When ever I've had this type of problem, be it plumbing, electrical, automotive, whatever, I take the part(s) in a bag, to the source supply house...ALWAYS swing by a coffee shop and pick up a tray of java with cream and sugar on the side.

Good advise and consideration are always available for customers that show consideration. Plumbing supply house will have the parts you need plus knowledgable staff to assist you.
