SOURCE: Bath tub drain

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.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: This might be a plumbing problem but it only

Check your main vent line for obstructions (animals, nests, leaves, etc.) and then have your drains inspected. There is likely a "log-jam" (pun intended) in the sewer drain line - as it is not allowing the water to drain as fast as the washer pumps it out.

How to remove bath tub pop-up stoppers


Put the lever in the open position so that you can grab the stopper. After you get a grip on it, put the lever in the closed position and the drain plug and rocker assembly will pull out in a horizontal direction.

I can not close my bath tub drain. the plunger is all internal and wont come out either. I tried a coat hanger to push it down. no go.


on most tubs the stopper is made to come out! does the stopper have 2 screws at the stopper lever. if it does just remove these screws and pull the stopper out slowly. when putting in a new one. have the same length as the old one, then slide it back in the drain fairly slow until it goes all the way in. replace screws and try it! good-day!

Water is leaking from bath tub drain


the most common reason for a drain to leak is that the plumbers putty around the drain where it meets the sink or tub has dried out and has a crack or void in it. Unscrew the drain from inside of the tub and check the plumbers putty. There is an inexpensive drain wrench sold at hardware stores, lowes and home depot that makes this an easy fix.

Bath tubs installation


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.
