    Sorry Bout your poor C/S

    Set a Kohler like yours at the turn of the century.

    Pump/Bladder seal became too much of a maintenance issue for the homeowner.
    Now it's a shower with a 22" step through diverting dam.

          It was leaking badly at the diverter valve?

          Where at?

          At the deck?

          Is the valve pre-installed?

          Thanks.

            Do those things have a pump or something to make them drain faster?

The drain pump is not overly powerful and did not cause any oscillation issues with any of the traps. Fortunately this house was plumbed well. It did cut the drain time down ⅔.

                    The diverter valve was luckily right behind the front panel which made it easy to access. However, if anything on the other side leaks, I'll be ripping off siding. The diverter valve is installed at the factory.

                    I should have taken pictures inside the unit but I didn't have my camera.
                    Sounds like alot could go wrong with that tub.
