Hey when fitting a shower tray trap is it usual to dry fit the tray, mark were the centre of the shower waste hole is. Remove the tray and run the waste and attach bottom half of trap to waste so its in the right place for the tray. Re-fit the tray then screw top section of trap to bottom section through the tray, using silicone to help seal top section of trap. Is that the correct way of doing it?

so align it then the top bit screws in to it thanks. Can I also ask with a close couple toilet do people usualy put silicone around the rubber washers to help it seal?
