These are a little tough to do sometimes as they seize up. I typically will tighten them by hand just a little to some times crack seal they have made in threads. Then feather then unscrew I unscrew while putting force on edge as if you were trying to tip it to one side. 99% of time this is enough.
If not unscrew top counter clockwise then use small pliers to grab unit as low was possible. When free clean threads and put a light cost of Vaseline on threads so it does not happen again.

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.

Pop up plug cannot be connected in the drain


Turn it around the other direction. Not upside-down, just rotate it 180 degrees. The stopper lever will fit through the hole in its end one way or the other.

Grohe drain stopper installation


Try cleaning drain with a length of wire. Strip insulation back about an inch. Turn exposed wire back to form a hook and put down drain and spin, then remove from drain, repeat until hook comes out fairly
clean. Then put drain cleaner down drain, follow instructions with drain cleaner. This should remove gunk that is preventing stopper from working correctly.

How does the lift and turn stopper come out so we can clean plugged drain?


  • Push the stopper down to fully seal the stopper against the tub drain.

  • 2

    Turn the knob on top of the stopper counterclockwise with your fingers. Do not lift the stopper while turning the knob. Remove the knob from the stopper.

  • 3

    Insert a large flathead screwdriver into the slot on the center shaft of the stopper. You will see the center shaft when you remove the knob. Turn the shaft counterclockwise to unthread it from the retaining hole in the bathtub drain basket.

  • 4

    Use a pair of vise-grip pliers to turn the shaft if the center hole has corrosion and will not accept a screwdriver. Lock the jaws of the pliers securely around the shaft, and turn the shaft counterclockwise.

    Pull the stopper out of the tub by lifting it by the shaft.

    Some of the drain plugs have holes or slots in them so that the stopper can not be removed without taking the actulating lever out from under the sink. This rod is part of the linkage that is hooked to lift rod on top, Unscrew retaining nut to remove rod so you can take stopper out. Remember that any water that is in sink is going to run out of this hole once you remove rod. Good luck and thank you.

    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.

    Stopper came out Pegasus bathroom sink


    Pegasus make several models but I'll make an assumption that it has a pop-up plug actuated by a rod just behind the tap head.

    If correct....

    Under the sink in the cabinet you will see the rod comes down and connects to an adjustment fitting and into the main drain line from the sink. There will be a fitting on the drain line holding the connection. Inside is a metal ball and connecting rod that links to your plug.

    Remove the fitting.
    Slide the ball and rod partially out.
    Put your plug back in.
    Engage the rod again (you will need to fiddle a bit here).
    Tighten the fitting.
    Run water to ensure the fitting is tight and not leaking.


    Should be good to go.

    Please rate this answer if it gives you some direction.

    Bathroom tub drain clogged


    If you have a popup/ plunger type drain stopper controlled by a lever at the overflow, then, yes, it would be a great idea to remove that. They commonly add to drain problems.

    Remove the two screws at the overflow plate (the one with the lever for stopping the water). Be careful that the gasket between the tub and overfow does not fall out when you fully remove the screws. Pull out the stopper assembly. You may have to jiggle it somewhat. Clear your drain some more and run a little water in it. Then replace the stopper assembly, making sure to keep the overflow drain lined up as you screw the plate back in.

    You may consider replacing a lever stopper with a "twist and twirl" type.

    If you do not have a lever assembly then you may have to use a small hand held snake to clear out the drain
