You may not have heard of a “waste and overflow,” but if you like to take baths, you should know that it is the system that makes them possible. The waste and overflow controls your bathtub drain, allowing you to fill your tub and empty it as necessary. Whether you want to install a new waste and overflow, repair an existing one, or just understand how it works, Best Plumbing can help! We provide a variety of services for waste and overflow assemblies.
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 triplever, 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.
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.
It’s easy to take waste and overflows for granted, but if you want to ensure that taking a bath doesn’t end up flooding your bathroom, make sure yours is in working order!

When it comes time to sell, Seattle homeowners will often invest in remodeling projects as a way to sweeten the deal for prospective buyers. The bathroom and the kitchen are the two most popular rooms to renovate and can greatly add to resale value. When you are looking for cost-effective ways to remodel, consider performing these easy plumbing upgrades.
Low flow toilets, also called low flush toilets, save homeowners money by using less water to get rid of waste. Even if they can’t entirely renovate a bathroom, homeowners who want to sell can still upgrade to a low flow toilet as a way to appeal to people looking for more sustainable homes.
Another popular upgrade is adding motion sensor faucets in kitchens and bathrooms. These allow people to wash their hands without turning a handle. As a person’s hand comes close to the sensor, the faucet automatically turns on the water and can turn it off after a few seconds to conserve water.
Switching out showerheads is an easy way to add luxury and style to the shower area. You can install low flow showerheads to conserve water, while luxury massage and rain showerheads can inspire elegance and relaxation into the space.
If the kitchen has the space, or there is a master bathroom in the house, consider installing a double sink. Double sinks are extremely popular, especially when marketing a house to larger families where they need an extra basin to accommodate everyone during those busy mornings as people rush to get to work and school.
If you are completely renovating a kitchen or bathroom to the point where you are switching the positions of sinks, toilets and showers, taking the time to replace old pipes in the wall can be a great selling point that can help close the deal.
