Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MisterGato Description Is Incorrect
Look carefully at the picture and then read the description. Check the part number at Kohler's website. You will discover that this item is NOT, in fact, the brass overflow bath drain but is, rather, the PVC one. The price alone should be a dead giveaway.
I knew that going in but would have been really mad if I had expected the brass unit.
Installation went OK but the seal between the overflow collector and the tub could be better. A gasket, silicone sealant and three screws make it all work. Could have been done better by Kohler.

It will be even great if the installation package includes silicon sealant. My conctractor did not use sealant to the gasket rubber (:-<). After a month (yes, more than a month) the ceiling below the tub started seeing wet spot and eventually water leaking. You know what's happened next to your ceiling. Just a friendly suggestion and reminder.

Although I haven't had this product for a very long time, I can say that my contractor just installed it with my Archer bathtub and it looks amazing! I'm not sure why so many people reviewed this product saying they had trouble installing it. My contractor said that if it's done right, it really not a problem. He said he didn't have any issues with this. I also noticed that this drain pipe had a brass option to purchase. He also told me that it's unnecessary to purchase brass and that PVC will last longer. Overall, I love how my tub and this drain look together. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SoCalAl Looks great but a bit tricky to install
Overall the chrome plate looks sharp in the tub - we like the simple horizontal look (so much better than a traditional round plate/knob) and mirror finish.
Our plumber did have difficulty with the installation. The gasket behind the plate didn't seal completely and left a leak. It took some experimentation with tightening different screws and squeezing silicone caulk to get the seal correct.
He also went with experience in cutting the PVC pipe rather than following the directions - which resulted in a section being too short and having to find replacement pipe. Fortunately he had a lot of cement!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chesapeakebill drain stopper failed
Tub is 2 years old. The stopper is a toe touch and you push once to stop and once to open. After 2 years it does not work anymore. Now I have to look for rebuild kit, if such even exists. I took it apart and of course it is just cheap plastic and has worn out. Not a big deal if you could get parts readily. Did I mention that this is not cheap to buy to start with.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by finally4 tub drain problem
Finally received the tub drain kit after making 4 trips to
the HD store. Problem is the retail stores sell the Kohler
Archer & Devonshire tubs, but do not stock the tub drain
kits K 7272. Looks to me it would be better if the special
tub kits would be available at the retail store,where the
tub was purchased, instead of having to special order the
kit. Four stores within a 50 mile radius did not stock this
K 7272 and I had to special order it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Anthony Toe-tap stopper failed after 6 months!
Just installed this drain kit 6 months ago with an archer tub and the drain stopper has already failed. Pulled it after my wife tried taking a bath the other night and didn't realize it wasn't working until she had run completely out of hot water and the tub had barely filled. After removing the stopped, saw that the seal is warped. Very disappointing for a Kohler product. Thanks for ruining my date night Kohler.
