    I recently ordered a new bath and it come pri-drilled with the waste/overflow. The problem i'm having is, the pri-drilled hole for the over flow is 2", where my overflow connector is 1.5". This means when i tighten it all up, the washer slips and doesn't create a water tight seal. I've looked around to maybe source a 2" overflow but they are hard to come-by. I was hoping somebody more knowledgeable could suggest the best course of action.

    Thanks a lot.

    Most overflows are 1.5",you will find a lot of the overflow bath central fillers use a 2" or larger hole.

    I think that is exactly what i need, thanks!

    Yes there are 2 holes on the top for taps.

    I think i will order what The Teach suggested, unless there are any other suggestions.

    Thanks for the replies.

    The clicker (click clack) o_O Waste plugs work well but in a bath tub can be bothersome if that end of the bath is used as a shower or when laying back in the bath tub and your heel touches the clicker allowing the bath to drain :(.

    Pop up waste waste systems also have large overflow flanges 65-70mm
