A shower hair catcher could be attached to this drain to protect unwanted debris, however at this time we do not offer this additional item.
Threading is only on the outside of the drain. It threads into a female fitting for installation.
The shower drain has male threads. It will work with your 2-inch pipe. If a 2-inch female adapter has been added to accept the male threads on the drain.
It will fit but I wouldn’t suggest using this product on cast iron due to the irregular surface of the pipe. It may not seal properly.

This is a multi-part drain. The chrome top section unscrews from the brass base section. There are 2 rubber washers included. The brass base section screws into you existing drain pipe. This is where you need to make sure the threads match and the height is correct for you shower base. If that is correct, use Teflon tape or thread compound and get the brass base section good and sight in you existing metal drain pipe. Then one of the rubber washers is placed on top of the brass base section. Place your shower base, then place the second rubber washer before screwing down the chrome top section.
Yes, this drain will fit standard in. compression fitted drains.
Iron Pipe Size (IPS) refers to an old pipe sizing system still in use by some industries, including major PVC pipe manufacturers, as well as some legacy drawings and equipment. The iron pipe size standard came into being early in the 19th century and remained in effect until after World War II. The IPS system was primarily used in the United States and the United Kingdom. In the 1920s, the Copper Tube Size (CTS) standard was combined with the IPS standard.
