tub drain


If I'm reading this right:
1) no stopper, rubber, metal, etc. will keep water in the tub... yes?
2) there is no access hatch to the drain and OF assy....

If the leaking continues unabated...
your downstairs neighbor will soon show you where access to your plumbing can be found.

Is there a room directly behind the wall with faucet,or maybe a closet?
Plumbing is normally on interior walls tp protect from freezing,how about a picture?

As long as theres a room there,thats what I was getting at.
Figure out about where the tub waste/overflow is in relation to that room and cut an access hole in the sheetrock about 12" off the floor,make it around 6" square to start with to see if youre in the right area.
Let us know what you find,a picture once you open wall would be nice
