IPS Corporation Expands the AB&A Offering to Include One-Piece Flexible Kits and Direct Drain Waste & Overflow


Collierville, Tenn., Nov 27, 2018 —IPS® Corporation, the trusted leader in innovative plumbing solutions, announces the addition of the one-piece flexible waste & overflow with direct drain as well as direct drain half kits to the AB&A™ line.

The new one-piece assembly is available in multiple pipe lengths to fit any tub, and ships preassembled with no trimming required for a faster, easier installation. The direct drain configuration is ideal for use in installations where baths are installed back to back, such as apartments, hotels and condominiums. The direct drain tee is offered in one-piece flex full kits, a variety of half kits, and separately as an accessory.

“The new flexible one-piece kit gives installers the confidence they will complete the job right the first time.” said Ken Smithart, AB&A product manager. “Our focus remains to provide the best products to contractors to help them do a better job, faster.”

Both new products are available with the Classic high-flow overflow cover plate, the preferred choice of contractors. Classic’s slotted design provides greater drainage through the tub overflow, allowing water to drain from the overflow at twice the rate of most commercially available overflows. As always with Classic, installers can easily secure the overflow elbow, gasket, and cover plate to the tub without the use of a screwdriver or screws and a test kit is included in every rough-in, half, or full kit.
