No, a tub drain is too small for toilet Plumbing. Toilet drains needs at least a 3" drain line and vented.

You dont. A tub drain is too small for a toilet drain. You need to hire a professional to find a main line 3" or bigger to tie into for a toilet drain.

The clog is below the point where the toilet and the tub join the drain.

Yes as long as the drain has a trap and is vented

There may not be a trap in the line on the toilet drain. The stool acts as the trap keeping sewer gas from coming up. If there is access to the drain from below then a trap could be installed.

The tub and toilet connect to the same drain. There is not enough venting or how it is routed causes the tub to pull on the toilet to get venting causing a suction that lowers the water level or may cause it to flush.

The tub and toilet connect to the same drain at some point. The main drain was plugged but the connection between the toilet and tub was still open. Water seeks it's own level. When the water came up in the toilet, the tub was lower so some of it went there.

The drain is plugged between the tub and the sewer or septic or in the case of the septic system, the tank may be full. The toilet had to go somewhere and the tub was available.

It's not the toilet, there's a blockage in the pipes some where after the drain pipe from the toilet joins up with the drain pipe from the tub.You're going to need to have the pipe snaked.

The toilet itself is plugged or the pipe from the toilet to the drain is plugged. It may be that the tub and sink have their own drain pipe that may connect to the main away from the toilet drain. Plunge the toilet or sometimes if you fill a 5 gallon bucket with water and pour it into the toilet as fast as it will take it, that will flush out the line. It is a greater amount of water all at once an forces out what the clog is.

A tub drain vents through the overflow.

== == == == == == If you have an open septic tank or broken sewage pipe anything that crawls can get into your toilet or bath tub or sinks. You can buy a special trap device to keep all creepy crawlers out of your sewage pipes. The device lets the water out but it won't let the critters in. Keep a tub screen on the drain in your tub to reduce spiders from coming into your bath tub.I have seen a snake come out of my own toilet. Spiders come up out of the bath tub drain all of the time. I live in the woods. You can expect the unexpected when you live in a forest.

The drain from the toilet to the main or the main itself is partially clogged or collapsed. There is probably enough room for the sink to drain but the washer puts out so much water all at once it can't get through and backs up into the tub and toilet.

The trap is built into the toilet itself, you shouldn't put one in the drain.

Supply lines- Hot and cold water for each sink, bathtub, Jacuzzi tub, and shower. Cold water for each toilet. Drain lines- one for each sink, bathtub, Jacuzzi tub, shower, and toilet.

You have to cut out a section of the floor so there is room for the drain. Something like a foot wide and 16 inches long.

Usually. Going through the overflow drain gets you straight into the drain without having to make the sharp bend in the tub drain. There could be a trap that comes apart in the drain underneath if it is accessible.

Once the old tub gets into the drain it is impossible to remove.........

15 inches from outside edge of tub to center of toilet flange.

If you have a clogged drain and you have coke in your house .. 1st Poured coke in the toilet than You wait 15 Minutes and Flush the Toilet and After that open The Toilet top part and it will look clean..

Connection of the washer drain hose to the tub drain is very important. This will help prevent leaks for example.

you turn on the tap by running on it, then you put the thumb drive down the toilet

You can't, the shower drain fitting is larger. You must fit a conventional tub overflow and drain
