It could be the pressure on the drain isn't allowing the rubber around the drain pop up to come unlodged from the floor of the tub. I have ran into this problem a few times. the best way we found to take care of it was to install a push pull type drain assembly or try and adjust the drain pop up so it pops up higher allowing the rubber around it to break the seal and start to drain. take some pictures and post them i might be able to help more

In an ideal world you would like the drain end lowest and level from side to side. It won't hurt anything if it is not level, however the water may not all drain out if it is not level.

I need a manual of instructions for instalation of this product .

You will need plumbers putty and a plumber's drain tool. Put a ring of putty around the piece that will be on the inside of the tub to seal it. Then insert it through the hole making sure the rubber gasket is on the bottom side of the tub and tighten it down.

I need the installations for a American Standard

I had a similar problem where the Drain-Kit that I ordered was missing a part. After contacting American Standard and requesting a schematic. I realized that the missing part was the rocker assembly with stopper. I have a PDF of the schematic that I can send you if you still need it. Let me know. The alternative is to contact American Standard directly between 8am and 6pm Eastern and request the information. The phone number is (800) 442-1902 Option 3 then 1 then 2. Tell the person that you need the installation instructions for a universal bath drain.

American standard bath drain problem

The stoper assembly has linkage and a plumb bob aparatus

Step 1 remove the 2 screws that hold the chrome overflow cover,

Step 2 you will see a wire connected to the up and sown handle

Step 3 you should be able to fish out the linkage which will have a bumb bob attached
mae sure this is all connected if not reattach if you do not see the blumb bob reach your fingers in and grab the wire

Step 4 inspect the linkage the first link is about 3 inches from chrome cove, second is about 8 inches down and final is at the bob itself bob is pointed and slides in by gravity
If this all looks ok then fish it down , put chrome cover on and move lever up and down ( you should see the stopper mve up and down

Step 5 If stopper is not in just insrt in drain hole and move the lver flow lever up and down and drain should work sometimes the stoper does not go up or down far enough there could be an adjustment on the linkage to reduce or increase the length of the linkage

Good Luck
