Delta pull-up bathtub drain problem

I have Delta pull-up bathtub drain that is broken. I can see that the pin is missing that holds the drain stopper up when you turn it clockwise. How do I take this apart to fix? I can screw the knob off that pulls the stopper up, but can't get the actual stopper off. It just freely spins left or right.

Any solutions to my problem? Thanks in advance.

Hi Bigoz,

Drop the drain plug down about half way and try turning it counter clockwise. If you get no resistance after a full turn you will probably need to cut or break it out. If the pin is missing I'm guessing this is what you'll have to do. This answer assumes you have a lift and turn style drain.

Please ratre this response and Good Luck, Phil

    Pull the drain cover up and hold it up. Take a pair of needle nose pliers and grasp the shaft to prevent it from turning. Now turn the drain lid counterclockwise and it should unthread off the shaft.

Delta faucet will not hold water


The linkage to the drain stopper has to be adjusted so that the stopper seats when the rod is raised. If the stopper lifts out of the drain, it may be necessary to remove the lifter rod and insert it through the holes in the bottom of the stopper then reinstall. After this, pulling up on the faucet rod will force the stopper to seat rather than drop by gravity. The tradeoff is that you will not be able to remove the stopper without disassembly of the connection

My bathtub is draining very slow and I cannot figure out how to remove the stopper to clean out the problem (which is most likely a lot of hair). It is brand new...only like 6 months old...Delta brand.


On most drains, the top of the drain will unscrew, and then you can get to the rest of it. Sometimes you will have to take a pair of pliers to turn it, but it should come off.

I stopper on a garden tub with a delta faucet. The stopper pushes down and locks to stop water. It takes a few tries pushing it down to get it to stop and hold water. What is the best way to fix it or...


In my part of the country, the type of drain you refer to is commonly called a tip-toe drain because you can use your toes to open and close the drain. Their locking ability diminishes over time and use, and eventually won't lock at all. They cannot be repaired, and must be replaced. You must remove the one you have to get the correct replacement because there are variations in the thread diameter at the bottom of the stopper.
You will need to use pliers large enough to grab around the white plastic underneath the top of the stopper that appears to disappear into the drain. Once you have the white plastic shaft secured with pliers, grab the very top (the chrome part) and twist it counterclockwise to remove it. Once that is off you will see a round piece of brass that looks like the top of a very large screw. IT IS! Using a stantard screw driver, again turn counterclockwise to finish removing the rest of the stopper.
A good hardware store should have a replacement for you. Be sure to match up the thread diameter at the bottom of the stopper.
To reinstall, you can reverse the steps or simply thread the complete assembly into place.

Removing bath drain


There are two types of tub drain stoppers for the delta brand - lift & turn and toe tap.

Lift and Turn:
The lift & turn stopper for the bathtub unscrews counterclockwise while in the full up position.

Toe Tap:
The toe tap stopper does also but if the cap may unscrew from it before the entire stopper comes out. In that case, there is a nut that is now exposed and can be accessed to unscrew the assembly.

If either of these is "spinning" without unscrewing, the threads are stripped and you would need to exert upward pressure while unscrewing in hopes of uncoupling this from the bath waste. If that doesn't work you would have to unscrew the bath waste flange from the drain pipe.
This will require access under the tub. I hope this answer the question for you. Thank you for using FIXYA. Jeff

I have a Delta push down bathtub drain stop, but it is worn and does not stop the water. It does not unscrew as far as I can see how do I get it apart without removing the tube which I can not do?

The tub stopper will not stay seal. It is a push type system


Pull out the stopper and adjust the threaded screw so that it does not protude so far. This means screwing it up (after loosening the locknut) into the stopper.

Kohler bathtub drain seems to be disconnected from control lever. This is the type with the "in bathtub stopper" that raises up and down to let water flow out. The stopper does not move up and down as it...


Okay, remove 2 phillips head screws at lever handle/overflow.

Pull firmly with much effort and bowing the connecting rod a bit.

Up will come a heavy duty spring on the end of the rod.(prolly a big slimly hair ball too!)

Hope you get the spring, cause that's what works the drain stop.

If spring doesn't come out you'll have to "fish" it out.

Clean everything up real good and flush drain good also now.

The "Secret" now is to put the Lever,rod and spring assembly back in and replace screws and get the lever flipped to the left BEFORE you put the Drain Stop in.

How to replace kohler bathtub stopper?


If it is not a cable operated drain stopper, most have a knurled push pull knob on the top of the stopper. This knob should twist off to the left exposing a screw slot in the middle of the stopper. Using a flat blade screwdriver turning left until the stopper is free. If it is a cable opperated stopper, it is best to get a pro to replace it. If the cable is damaged and needs to be replaced, the tub will have to be pulled to do this job.
