3. From inside tub, install Drain Elbow through tub drain.

4. Slip on Rubber Seal, Slip Washer and Nut, in that order, and tighten to tub.

5. Solvent weld: Overflow Elbow, Sanitary Tee and schedule 40 pipe or flexible tubing.

6. Install the Foam Washer up to the flange on the Overflow Elbow and install welded assembly through the tub overflow opening.

7. Solvent weld Sanitary Tee to Drain Elbow. Fig 3 For the White ABS drain elbow, use standard ABS materials and joining techniques.

8. From inside the tub, install the Retainer Star Nut onto the Overflow Elbow and hand tighten to tub. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN.

9. Pressure test (if required). After pressure testing, use a knife to cut out the Test Membrane from the Overflow Elbow and Drain Elbow.

10. Snap on the Overflow Plate with open slot facing down. Fig

11. Unscrew Knob from Stopper. Screw the Push Pull® Pin/ Stopper assembly into the threaded Crossbar.
