What Does a Waste and Overflow System Do?

The waste and overflow serves multiple purposes. The waste portion of the system is what drains used water from a bath. It is usually controlled by a triplexer, which can be flipped to open or close the drain – thereby filling or draining the tub. The overflow half of the system is meant to prevent the tub from filling with too much water. If the water in the tub gets too high, it will drain via the waste and overflow system.

How Does it Work?

The waste and overflow is an L-shaped apparatus. The lower piece is the main tub drain, and the upper piece is the overflow drain. These drains are usually exposed and visible in the tub, while the rest of the system is enclosed. If you need to install or repair part of this enclosed system, it is best to call in a professional plumber who knows the different pieces and how they function together.
