    Once I set the new tub (Kohler Villager) in place I have virtually no access to the overflow and tub drain assy. How do I connect these without cutting a hole in the wet wall and accessing from the adjacent room? I must be missing something obvious?? Or, is this a near impossible task without cutting into the wall to gain access to the plumbing connections?

    Thanks

    The drain and overflow needs to be put in place before the tub is installed. This can be a little tricky if you havn't done it before. It might take a few times putting the tub in place then pulling it out to get it perfect.

    If you do that, and everything is lined up perfectly, you only get one last chance to glue that last piece in...when you set the tub down.
