What is the difference between a right handed bathtub drain and a left handed bathtub drain?
When you are facing the side of the tub (looking at the skirt) as if you are about to get in the drain will appear on either the right of you or the left of you. That will designate a right or left handed tub. This only applies to tubs that have the skirt (Side wall) as part of the tub. A drop-in tub has no skirt will not use the right or left hand designation as the same tub can be installed either left or right.
