I am in the home stretch of a bathroom model. A plumber roughed-in the supply/drain lines and set the tub. I had a slightly larger/taller than standard tub. He did a good job, but when he left he showed me how the waste and overflow drain that I had purchased worked, but the stopper did not go deep enough to block the drain. It is all the way extended on the threaded portion.
Has anyone heard of an extension for a PVC drain linkage assembly? If all else fails I will probably remove the trip lever drain setup and change out the drain/strainer to a twist-type.
