Installing Bathtub Overflows Is Best When Left to Professionals.
Installing bathtub overflows is difficult. That's because you need access either underneath or behind the tub. The overflow is installed in the wall of the tub, often beneath a cover plate just above the tub drain. This mechanism is what starts automatically draining the tub if the water gets left on. Clearly, this is an important part of your bathroom's functionality. Lucky homeowners have easy access to the overflow.
