Question about American Standard Plumbing
SOURCE: eljer garden garden tub drain
Tub overflows are not required in all states but I highly recommend drilling the hole and installing the proper waste and overflow drain I recommend the Gerber brand and also when you set the tub you need to set it in a light concrete for stability I use great stuff foam for setting tubs 2 cans spray on floor and set and level tub tub will never wobble or move

Okay, remove 2 phillips head screws at lever handle/overflow.
Pull firmly with much effort and bowing the connecting rod a bit.
Up will come a heavy duty spring on the end of the rod.(prolly a big slimly hair ball too!)
Hope you get the spring, cause that's what works the drain stop.
If spring doesn't come out you'll have to "fish" it out.
Clean everything up real good and flush drain good also now.
The "Secret" now is to put the Lever,rod and spring assembly back in and replace screws and get the lever flipped to the left BEFORE you put the Drain Stop in.

Testimonial: "The info was very helpful and thanks for the "secret"!"
yes it can be changed without removing the tub, but you must open up wall, floor whatever it takes to be able to see all this drainage, as you can see, you can't change the parts from in the tub,.....good luck, cracklin joe
