Yes, there is a nut on the back side of the pipe that should spin on/off. There is a metal arm that comes out and connects to the stopper arm located in the top of the faucet. Hope this 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.

Backed Up Kitchen Double Sink Fix with Garbage Disposal- Quick and Simple Fix


Here's how to fix a backed-up double sink (running water down one side/sink causing dirty water to well up out of the drain on the other side, with slow or no emptying). Note that this quick-and-easy tip only works if you have a functioning garbage disposal.

What you will need: a stopper, and possibly a clean toilet plunger (the cup-shaped kind that stands on its own, not the kind that is bulb-shaped)

Stopper up the side in which the water is rising up out of the drain. Make sure you hold down the stopper as well; if you don't, the stopper will shoot up on a geyser of dirty water when you perform the next step. Once you have the stopper in place and are holding it down, run water on the other side/sink and turn on the garbage disposal. Once you have done that for a reasonable amount of time, shut off the garbage disposal and water, and unstopper* the other side. Run water on both sides to make sure everything is draining properly. Doing this should save you the hassle of taking the pipes apart or plunging one side repeatedly to clear the clog.

*Note: If the stopper is stuck, place the plunger so it completely covers the opening the stopper is stuck in and give it two good plunges. The plunger should create a vacuum that will suck out the stopper, and is more effective than you trying to pry or pull on it. Do this ONLY after you have shut off the garbage disposal and water.

What is happening is that there is a clog in your pipes. When water goes down one side, it hits the clog somewhere in the pipes, has nowhere to go, and gets pushed back up the pipe leading to the other side of the double sink. By stopping up the side without the garbage disposal, you are creating a barrier preventing the water from coming back up. At the same time, the garbage disposal running on the other side is forcing the water down. Since the water now cannot escape up the stoppered side, it has nowhere to go but down, forcing the clog out with it.

Gurgling in the bath tub when toilet is flushed


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
lear a clogged (not stopped) sink or bathtub with a plunger:
  1. If you have a dishwasher, pinch off the rubber dishwasher drain hose that leads to the garbage disposer using a clamp or locking pliers. If clearing a bathtub, remove the drain stopper and cover the overflow opening with a wet rag.
  2. Remove the sink basket or tub stopper and clean any debris from the drain opening.
  3. Fill the sink or tub with sufficient water to cover the plunger cup, usually about 2 inches. If you are working on a double sink, seal the other sink with a stopper so the plunger can create a vacuum.
  4. Set the plunger on the drain opening and repeatedly pump it up and down, then pull away sharply to dislodge debris. Repeat if necessary.
  5. Turn on warm or hot water to flush loosened debris from the drain.
  6. If the clog remains, use an auger (see below) or an expansion nozzle (see below) to clear the drain.
Clear a clog using an auger:
  1. Remove the stopper or strainer. If unable to do so, disassemble the drain trap (see below) and feed the auger directly through the pipe. Make sure you have a pail and rags nearby in case of a water spill.
  2. Release the setscrew on the auger and begin feeding the cable into the open drain.
  3. Once the auger tip hits the clog, set the screw and crank the auger clockwise to break up the clog.
  4. Continue breaking up the clog and moving it down the drain line with the auger. Once there is no more resistance to forward motion of the auger, stop and carefully remove the auger.
  5. If the clog can't be moved, continue twisting the auger to possibly snag and retract the clog.
  6. Once the clog is cleared, flush the drain with boiling water.

if you look under neath your vanity you will see where the plunger goes into the drain pipe. remove it and see if your activator rod is there, if so this is what screws into the plug end. if it is not there remove your U section and see if it is in there and reattach it. if it is broken you will have to get a repair kit at your local hardware store.

Bathroom sink needs new drain, leaks under counter


Is it a new sink? Most of the time if it's new you'll have to get more pvc pipe because the new tail piece that comes with the new faucets usually is either longer than before or shorter. Yes you can get another tail piece or you may be able to by a longer pvc piece to to hook up the the metal tail piece. Make sure you have the plastic seals inside the pipe where they attach together or it will leak. Once you have it all together close your stopper and fill the sink with water and then pull the sink stopper and watch for leaks if it dont leak then it wont leak.

My sink is backing up on bothe sides


Your drain line is clogged, beyond the sinks. You might be able to use a plunger to clear it. Seal off one the drains and use the plunger in the other. After you get it cleared, run pure hot water for a few minutes to melt the junk out of the line. When using the disposer, use cold water only, NEVER hot. If this doesn't get your drain flowing, you will have to snake the drain--to the main drain.

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 :).
