Which tailpiece?

This forum has already been a great help for my project, so thank you all.
I want to make sure I get this tub drain right the first time. Can someone tell me the proper way to connect a 1.5" tee to my trap in slab?

Ouch, your 2" trap has been reduced considerably and will probably all need changing out to the lateral at the lower right of your picture. Unless it can be detached at the entrance to the trap.

Why dont you use a standard waste and overflow? It uses the standard threaded tail piece..

Otherwise you need to glue a trap adapter to the bottom of your tee and use /cut a small piece of tubular pipe/tailpiece to fit between trap and tee.

Thanks a lot! The assembly we needed to match the other trim was only available in this pvc set or that one which was too expensive.

I wasn't aware it was a tub, so using the assembly Mike mentioned makes better sense than building one. You already have the adapter in place. It just looked like a pipe stub in the first picture.

You can get overflows in any trim. plastic, brass, etc... chrome, nickle, pewter, bronze, etc...

But if thats what you want to do glue a trap adapter to bottom of tee. Stick tubular pipe/tailpiece cut to size between the two to trap with nuts and washers and be done with it..
