How to remove a hairball from a Moen tubdrain?


Is it a lift and turn? If the stopper does not unscrew easily by hand, you may need pliers to unscrew it. Once you remove the stopper, I typically use needle nose pliers to grab a chunk of the hair, then start wrapping it like spaghetti around the tip of my pliers. Not quite sure if this is the answer you are seeking, but hope it helps.

Clogged drain on moen bathroom sink


There should be a stopper valve on the sink's downspout (the first section of drain pipe). You SHOULD be able to loosen the nut holding the stopper valve's lever inside the pipe. Once you remove that nut, you can pull the lever out - that releases the stopper inside the sink, so you should start with the stopper OPEN, and hold it open with a chopstick or pencil or other tool when you remove that lever.

The lever and the bottom of the stopper itself will be wrapped with masses of hair. That's normal. Clean it up and reinsert it, put the nut back on & snug it down, then readjust the stopper.

If that's not enough, you may need to open the trap (the gooseneck-shaped piece of drain pipe under the sink) to clean it out.

Touchdown stopper will not pop back up


The spring-loaded stopper mechanism may be clogged with hair, soap, and "gunk". Repair consists of removing the assembly, disassembling it (remembering the disassembly order of parts), cleaning all parts, and reassembling, testing, and reinstallation. Periodic maintenance will keep your stopper operating like new.

Toe tap stoppers remove by just gripping the stopper and unscrewing it. Once the stopper has been removed the hair will be usually caught on the crossbar underneath the stopper where it can be removed with needlenose pliers.
Spring type stoppers for drains are just about as notorious for being hair catchers. Once again there is nothing to stop the hair from leaving the tub.

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.

Tub drain wont stay open


If this is a trip lever waste type of drain it can be adjusted, Remove the 2 screws that hold the adjusting lever, this will allow you to remove the stopper. Clean the stopper of hair and sludge and replace. This will usually fix the problem. If not then adjust the linkage for the stopper.

Jacuzzi rotary drain


I don't understand the bend down rhing. The drain stopper, as you call it, has a rod that goes through the end of it to enable opening and closing with the vertical control.If I'm on the same page, under the sink on the backsie there is nut that holds the stopper control.. It has a nut you need to remove and line up the short end with the stopper slot, then put the nut back on to secure the ball. Don't overtighten. Now the log end of that same rod is secured with a spring clip to the un and down control rod . It can be adjusted by moving the spring clip up or down on the control rod. noyhing isbroken, just pulled apart or out of adjustment.

The tub/water stopper...how do you take that off to unclog hair in the drain?


The overflow drain / stopper lever has 2 screws holding it in place, place a rag over the drain and remove the 2 screws. then remove the drain assembly, it should slide right out. You can now clean the assembly, you may still need a piece of wire to fish the hair out.

I am trying to remove the pop-up drain


To clean the drain simply remove the packing nut off the back of the pop-up assembly. This is located under the sink itself and will be on the back side of the chrome (might be plastic) pipe coming out of the drain hole. This nut is what is holding the rod in place. When you remove it be sure not to lose the ferule (nylon washer) inside. after the nut is off, you can pull the actual stopper out and have better access to the drain inside. Use a small hair remover (you can buy these at the "depot"), it has a long body with small "spines" coming off the sides to catch hair, to pull out hair. It should be long enough to get into the P-Trap. After you are satisfied you can put the stopper back in. Make sure the hole in the bottom of the stopper is lined up to catch the rod. Reassemble the packing nut with ferule and check for leaks. If you want to take the trap off be sure to have some 'pipe dope' on hand to reseal the threads. Teflon tape is not necessary. Reassemble the trap and check for leaks and you should be good to go. Good luck :).
