You need to replace the overflow cover with the lever on it.You can replace the entire piece or just the faceplate.There is a spring on most of these that holds the lever in place when thrown and that is the piece that is broken causing your issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

For a tub overflow washer (Part# PPC826-3) where should the "thick end" go - top or the bottom? Is pasting a little silicone recommended on it so that it has a better seal after I tighten the screw?


The thicker end goes up because of the sloped end of the bathtub. You should not need to apply any sealant - the gasket is compressed as the screw is tightened.

Why does my geberit bath waste plug leak water?


It's adjustable. Remove the drain lever from the side of the tub. Now you can withdraw the whole drain assembly. Clean it well, then reinsert it to see if that fixed the problem. If not, try adjusting it longer.

I need my bathtub resurfaced


For bath refinishing there are several companies out there that do that. My suggestion is to do a google/bing search and see what comes up in your local area.

Drain in the close position the drain handle is not working


Remove the 2 screws on the drain cover in the bath tub to gain access. Drain plug should be connected to trip lever on drain cover probably using a cotter pin with ends bent to keep it on. Do not yet remove the cotter pin.

To know for sure if it is the trip lever broken, you can hold the trip lever down and tub will drain. If you let go, trip lever on cover returns to upright position and stops draining. You can also feel the spring tension stay on it when you press the trip lever down. Most likely, the drain trip lever (spring action) which is a part of the cover itself is broken.

First have ice pick, thin screwdriver, (even a large paper clip (or 2 for strength) bent straight may do) or anything small enough to go through same hole in drain assembly as cotter pin, while long enough to go across hole in bathtub to hold drain assembly up till you install new drain cover attaching it to assembly with same or new cotter pin.
Now unbend the cotter pin (sort of looks like a heavy duty metal bobby pin) ends using pliers. Using pliers pull cotter pin out while holding drain assembly so it will not fall back into tub wall.
Next secure assembly using the above ice pick or large paper clip while you take trip lever (which is the cover)
to hardware store, etc. to pick up generic tub trip lever.



CHANCES ARE THE ABOVE SOLVED PROBLEM, BUT IN CASE IT WAS NOT THE TRIP LEVER WHEN YOU TESTED USING THE METHOD ABOVE TO DIAGNOSE THEN BELOW IS HOW TO REMOVE ENTIRE TUB DRAIN ASSEMBLY


There is a metal stem with a threaded rod coming up in it with a nut on it, and on the end of this is a round metal weight looking much like a very small upside down can. you will not be able to see all this unless it is neccesary to remove entire drain assembly which you can then take it to a Home Depot or Lowes type store to replace. Most can be replaced with a generic tub drain.
Now to get the assembly out once you've removed the 2 screws gently work metal stem assembly up and out at a slight angle. You may have to move nut on assembly to shorten the length in order to get it to clear the tub. IMPORTANT! If so, 1st mark the position of the nut on the threaded rod so you can put it back in same position when reinstalled before lowering assembly all the way back into tub wall.

I have an american standard tub and it constantly clogs. I used drane-o and it worked for a little bit but I think its the drain in the tub. How Can I tell if thats the problem?


Take screws out of plate on tub over flow and pull up trip lever. sometimes they move and need adjusting . It shoul dhave 2 bolts holding the plate on tub at overflow and work with it to remove trip lever assembly once out run some water down drain to let you know if that is th eproblem then you can adjust on trip lever assembly by moving the little barrel like plug near the handle a little will increase water flow out of tub once you put it back in you can adjust it out it back in with out bolting back turn water on and move lever to see if it drains any better.

They can be tricky but you can do it.

My bathtub drain leaks. Is there a product to


No, not without sealing, I mean clogging, the drain. Do you know exactly where the leak is coming from? I would suspect that the water is getting around the drain, instead of down the drain. The visible part of the drain should unscrew from the part that is underneath. That bottom part is likely permanently sealed to your drain plumbing.
You may be able to easily fix your leak by:
#1 Unscrewing the visible drain top.
#2 Replacing the washer under that top. This will seal your tub to your drain. All water will then be forced to flow down the drain properly.
#3 Screw the top of your drain back into place WITHOUT folding or wrinkling the new washer.
Good luck

My 2000 kohler tub drain leaks. The drain itself


Need clarification....the drain leaks to the ceiling below, or it doesn't hold water? If it doesn't hold water, no need to replace the ring. Those can be adjusted. Simply pull up on on the lever and screw it in clockwise. This will lower the stop and hold the water. If it actually leaks below, unscrew said stopper, grab a pair of needle nose pliers and place them in the drain (to grab the strainer) and use another pair to loosen. Once off, clean around drain and clean strainer, apply plumbers putty to the strainer, apply pipe "dope" (thread sealant) to the threads and tighten back in. Good luck!

Can no longer drain tub unless I use a piece of plastic under the plug and use this to pull the plug out after the bath


At the base of the plug there is normally a stud with a thread on it to allow you to raise and lower the plug so that it seals or empties.

If that is not how your oulet is made then there is a lever behind the or to the side of the outlet underneath the sink, that also is adjustable on most sinks.

Sometimes it is via a spring clip which rusts and loses its grip

Install bathtub without existing drain


it is generally not allowed under the water regs to discharge waste water into anything other than a drain.I would suggest you install a discharge pump, typically the saniflow type which will allow you to run the waste across the room and discharge the waste into the vanity basin drainage.Should you choose to install this be aware of the waste pipe configurations shown by the instructions
