How to Replace Overflow Drain Gasket for Tub?
Posted by Jeff on September 08, 2002 at 11:16:02:
I've located the cause of a leak from our tub, a defective "crumbling" overflow drain gasket. I've obtained the new gasket... the problem is installing it. The distance between the back of the tub and the overflow pipe makes it extremely difficult to insert the new gasket, and I don't want to "force" anything. The upper section of the overflow drain looks like it can be "detached," but as it would have to unscrew to do so, it would strike the side of the tub in turning, so that wouldn't work.How do I install the new gasket?
