Bathtub Overflow Drain Cover Diy. It may be difficult to insert because of the angle. Rattle it gently back and forth and let it drop into place.
Cover is also recyclable. I guess a porcelain on steel tub only lasts 20 to 30 years then it starts to rust and leak. This overflow cover is usually directly above the plug that drains the water on the bottom of the tub.
The entire assembly screws directly into a threaded pipe.
Remove the new bathtub overflow cover from its packaging. Feed the stopper assembly back into the drain. 1 inch hole at the top of the cover to help prevent the tub from overflowing and ensure excess water properly drains. The removal of the cover is an easier part of the process.
