Thanks. Wasn't sure if I should keep them together or not. Title is fine.

FWIW, the overflow is not a vent. The vent is to prevent the trap from being siphoned out, and thus, needs to be after the p-trap. The overflow is attached prior to the p-trap. Otherwise, the overflow would have a direct path to the sewer gasses if it was after the p-trap.

To clarify, overflow does indeed allow air into tub drain but does not act as a plumbing vent to exterior. Plug it and see how well your tub drains. Big gulps of air through drain = slow drain. I probably shouldn't have mentioned as it just served to muddy the water.

I can imagine why code doesn't allow horizontal drains before traps, but it's typically from a worst case scenario point of view and not every case is that way. FWIW, I wouldn't do if for a client.

So I’ve bought warmwire and cablestrap for the dry area and suntouch showermat for the shower. Gonna bed the warmwire in SLC, which I’ve not used before. Any recommendations on brand? Is self-leveling underlayment the same thing? Local stores carry LevelQuick or Henry, MAPEI and Tec. Reviews are inconsistent.
