The height between the drain and overflow is 10" (inches) it can go as high as 14" (inches). The distance between the drain hole and the center of the pipe are as follows.

A: Thank you for your interest in Danco products. This product is compatible with standard tub depths of up to 15”. Extensions (not included) may be necessary for deeper tubs.
A: The information supplied is insufficient to definitively answer your question. My first is answer is yes it would fit as this is a universal design that fits most common bathtubs. You state the tub is 20 inches. Is this measured on the outside from floor to the upper edge? Is this a standard bathtub, not a Jacuzzi or unusual shape such as a heart?. Because all of the joints (connections) of this drain kit are adjustable over several inches, it will essentially fit any standard rectangular or oval tub. And if your tub is 20 inches in height over all, this kit will easily fit the space between the drain and the vent.
A: Because this is an adjustable kit (universal), exact dimensions are not available or applicable. Both the drain piece and the vent are designed as slip joints. The main drain (tail piece) is threaded both from the vent piece and in the bottom where the tub drain meet it. Those 2 pieces use a corresponding nut just as any conventional PVC type drain pipe like you might find under a kitchen sink. Because of this design, the tub drain can range 6 3/4 inches from tub drain center to the seat in the down pipe, down to 5 1/2 inches (without alteration) but could be as little as 3 1/2 inches. The vent piece can be from 12 high from vent center of tub to as little as 6 inches from tub vent center down. It's shortest would be 10 inches without alteration. Both can be cut to shorten if necessary. And in some cases these measurements could be altered yet again depending on exactly how yours exits from under the tub. Typically the drain assembly exit straight down to the trap. But in some cases it may exit straight out from the tub before entering the trap. In the event yours exits straight from the tub before entering a trap, could make it necessary to reverse the tail piece which would change the above measurements to some degree.

A: There's always a way to remove hair. But this kit is a bit unique as the stopper is removable. The stopper rests atop a shaft made into the tail piece and held by a Phillips head screw. By holding the stopper up you could insert a standard Phillips screw driver below the stopper to loosen the screw and remove the stopper and easily access the inside of the drain. You need to be careful when doing this, to not loosen the screw to the point it falls out of the stopper and down the drain. Fortunately it is a standard size screw and is readily available should you drop it. It should be noted that in most cases, the drain trap is where you would clean the drain from. Typically it would be located in the basement directly under the tub or in some homes within the crawl space. In slab homes or on a second floor, it might be located inside an adjacent closet access panel behind the tub. This is good info both for clearing hair from the trap or retrieving said screw should it fall into the pipe.
A: You can go one of two routes: 1) use a drain cleaner like Drain-O or Mr. Plumber or 2) the Home Depot sells various drain accessories that will catch hair. I have used both the chemical approach and the hair catcher approach and both work well. If you are on a septic system, I would recommend against the chemical approach.
A: Thank you for choosing Danco products. Hair can be removed with a mini plumbers snake. Simply pull cover off of the Danco Lift & Twist part #51933 and insert snake about 2" in and pull back out and hair will follow.
