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.

How do I take the drain plug off so I can clean it out?


If the drain is one like this

You can remove it by unscrewing the cap anticlockwise. You may need vise-grips. Pad the jaws with masking tape.

If it is one like this

You must remove the center screw and strainer. In extreme cases you may need to remove and replace the drain flange with a special wrench

In some locations there is no center screw to the strainer, which is all one piece with the flange. These cannot usually be removed without access to the big nut on the underside of the tub

Water is draining from hot tub after its filled & dont know why


Hi Mary,sounds like your drain stopper may not be closing tight.Try removing the stopper by turning it counter clockwise,then jam a small rag in the drain as tight as you can to stop the water and fill the tub.If it still leaks then the drain plug where the stopper goes may have to be re-sealed or one of the jets may have a leak.If the tub is over a ceiling do not keep re-filling the tub you will cause major water damage to the rooms below.

I accidentally clogged my bathtub.


Liquid plumber or a good quality drain opener should disolve the foam things. Pour about a pint in and let it set for about 30 minutes, then flip the stopper up to seal off the drain. Run about 1/2 the tub full of hot water, open drain, and plunge rapidly with a plunger. This should fix your problem....(plumber 20 years)

I will do my best to explain this ---- the little button on top of the drain cap unscrews counter-clockwise,, I have found it best to push down the drain cap with one one hand ( very hard down )and with your other hand turn the button counter-clockwise. if it still will not budge then you might need to get a pair of channel locks and a pair of pliers and get it that way. now as soon as you get the button off -- the center spindle unscrews using a large flatblade screwdriver,, unscrew it and it will all come off. if you have anymore troubles - please feel free to write back and I will do my best to walk you through any steps.

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.

How do you get hair out of a drain that is in a Jacuzzi. Can I unscrew the drain stopper or can I remove the chrome plate further up the tub?


unscrew what ever is covering the hole where the water drains out,.... use a pair of needle nose pliers or an old coat hanger with a little hook pre-bent in it (don't get it stuck in there) and pull out the hair,....it's that easy! good luck, cracklin joe

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
