What is the recommended overhang or distance from the inside edge of the tub to the wall?
Thank you for your question. There is not a recommended overhang distance for the Delta Pivotal Two Handle Wall Mounted Tub Filler T5799-WL faucet from the wall. We leave that measurement to the installer's preference. However, the length of the spout assembly is 11 1/2" (292 mm) long from the base to the end of the spout.

1: What is the typical mounting height on the wall?
2: What is the minimum thickness of the wall to allow for the installation of this fixture?
Thank you for your question. There is not a recommended height for the faucet on the wall. We leave that measurement to the installer's preference. As for the thickness of the wall, the front of stringer must be 2 3/4" ± 1/2" from finished wall. You can view the installation instructions for the rough valve here:

With very good water pressure, please estimate how long would it take to fill a 35 gl soaker tub?
I am trying to decide on a wall mount or a floor mount. Some of the floor mounts are rated at 4.5 gpm . I am sorry, I just do not understand "there is not restrictions on the gpm" as stated in a previous question. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
Thank you for your question! This faucet does not have an aerator or flow restrictor that limits the maximum flow rate. The maximum flow rate will depend on the water pressure in your home. However, it will run at about 8 GPM at 60 PSI.
At 60 PSI it should take approximately 4 1/2 minutes to fill a 35 gallon tub.
