Well, if you finish installing the overflow, and fill the tub right over the top of it, and it does not leak, well then I guess it is acceptable. Mine is not perfectly centered either, and it does not leak, so I haven't fixed it yet. If it leaks, I will. I figure Im off center, so maybe my drain should be too.

Calm down, have a JD Black over crushed ice.

I am with you. Bottom line - it does NOT leak. Nor did the water level of a full tub drop any measurable amount over 14 hours. That tub is tight! Also, I really think the plumber that came out was diligent and was doing his best. This was a referral from my wife's boss and no apprentice. I don't know what and don't need to know, but something about the location made it a *****. He mentioned how had a joist not been so close to the p-trap it would have been much easier.

As for the alcohol! I am a very light drinker, but the last few nights I have had a good size glass of wine and last night the wife and I visited a nice sea food place and I did enjoy a vodka and tonic. Doubt it will ever happen, but would like to have a few rounds with you guys some day.

I had similar concern with a bathtub overflow looking funky. I posted here. Turned out to be OK.

Bathtub overflow plate. Is this a problem?

Thanks, Minus08. Your problem is almost a carbon copy of mine with the only difference being that your overflow is centered high and to the right and mine is low and to the left. I am a lot less concerned about this issue and have begun cleaning up the mess left by the original contractor so some people can get in to do the tiling and drywall.

I am now hooking up the new bath spout. The thread on the old brass 1/2" pipe is very slightly goobered up on the end that went in the wall. I think the guy I canned started it in cross threaded. Anyway, the end that threads into the far end of the spout looks fine. Should I just turn it around and insert the outside end in the wall or get a new one cut at HD?


Thanks and Happy Easter to all.

Thannks, Jagans. Not too concerned about the drain line, but if I ever have reason to pull the large pantry on the opposite side of the wet wall I will get in there and line that sucker up on the money.

Perhaps tomorrow I will enclose the tub with some sliding doors and caulk the **** out of it.

We take it easy on Easter. I like these low pressure holidays. The boss usually cooks a nice meal. Today it is a simple pork roast, and we have a bottle of wine and a few beers.
