A few days ago I did a post called Don’t blow a gasket---just change it! about how inspectors don’t typically change the gasket in tub overflows. I got a comment from someone named Patty. Charles Buell
Here is what she said: “Charles, you say that the gasket can be changed from inside the tub easily. Would you mind elaborating on how that can be done. I am not very handy and do not have access to the overflow pipe from the back of my tub. If it can be done from the front as you say I would love to know how. Thanks.”
I decided to make a video of how to change it. The 49 second video is short and sweet----and you won’t have to endure me speaking. Just like in the old days of silent movies there is nothing but music----and miscellaneous clinking and clanking. The start of the video leaves out removing the first of the two screws that hold the overflow in place and leaves out putting the screws back in place when I am done---hence the “screws on the loose.”
If you did turn up the sound----that music you could hear in the background is my daughter Lena's band, “The Lickets.” I hope you will check them out----I am pretty proud of her.
