Bathtub Drains..Trip or tap?

I would prefer not to put a strainer over the toe tap.

It doesn't have that difficult slope in the front that has caused problems for people fitting tub fillers, as the 867 has.

The open and close at the over flow can be either twist or push button, you chose which model you want.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that it should work. My plumber didn't see any reason it wouldn't work, so I am taking the plunge. I think they are beautiful.

I will include a few pictures.
