SOURCE: The pop-up drain stopper on my American Standard bathtub no longer seals in the down position. Any suggestions? KG

Unscrew it (turn left/counterclockwise), thoroughly clean it, lubricate it with liquid dish soap, screw it back in. If it still doesn't work, best bet is to get a replacement.

If, when you remove it, you find the gasket around the bottom is torn, probably ought to replace it and forego the cleaning step.

SOURCE: We have an American Standard lifetime whirlpool

Chances are that the drain assembly was not part of the tub but a 'generic' plumbing part. Is this pop up drain the type that you push down and it clicks closed and push down and then it pops up? It unscrews from the drain fitting and you can get a replacement at a big box store. A better pop up replacement is one called a Rapid-fit. It drains faster.

SOURCE: american standard bath drain problem

The stoper assembly has linkage and a plumb bob aparatus

Step 1 remove the 2 screws that hold the chrome overflow cover,


Step 2 you will see a wire connected to the up and sown handle


Step 3 you should be able to fish out the linkage which will have a bumb bob attached
mae sure this is all connected if not reattach if you do not see the blumb bob reach your fingers in and grab the wire

Step 4 inspect the linkage the first link is about 3 inches from chrome cove, second is about 8 inches down and final is at the bob itself bob is pointed and slides in by gravity
If this all looks ok then fish it down , put chrome cover on and move lever up and down ( you should see the stopper mve up and down

Step 5 If stopper is not in just insrt in drain hole and move the lver flow lever up and down and drain should work sometimes the stoper does not go up or down far enough there could be an adjustment on the linkage to reduce or increase the length of the linkage

Good Luck

SOURCE: drain stopper won't engage to keep water in tub

Hi, looking at this straight on, you will see 2 screws going through the lever plug section. What it looks like on the inside, is a long brass rod connected to another brass rod with a adjustable section on it and a brass looking piston at the end. If you remove the 2 screws, grab hold of the lever and chrome plate and pull straight out and up to remove the assembly.No worry, nothing will fall in as it is all one piece. You can try cleaning the lever section up and add some wd-40 to it and this may help some. It sounds to me like the lever ball joint is worn out, so it is best replaced. Home Depot has them for under $20.00. Take the old one with you and if need be you can adjust the new one to the same length as the old one. It will keep hanging up on you believe me. Good Luck,

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.

Very slow drainage of a small bathroom sink. Liquid Plumber does not help


probably hair stuck in the drain. did you remove the stopper "pop up" if no hair or blockage there or in the trap, then its further down, you will need a small snake. 1/4 inch cable works well in bath and kitchen drains.
you can purchase one at home depot.

I have a Delta push down bathtub drain stop, but it is worn and does not stop the water. It does not unscrew as far as I can see how do I get it apart without removing the tube which I can not do?


There are two types of tub drain stoppers for the delta brand - lift & turn and toe tap.

Lift and Turn:
The lift & turn stopper for the bathtub unscrews counterclockwise while in the full up position.

Toe Tap:
The toe tap stopper does also but if the cap may unscrew from it before the entire stopper comes out. In that case, there is a nut that is now exposed and can be accessed to unscrew the assembly.

If either of these is "spinning" without unscrewing, the threads are stripped and you would need to exert upward pressure while unscrewing in hopes of uncoupling this from the bath waste. If that doesn't work you would have to unscrew the bath waste flange from the drain pipe.
This will require access under the tub. I hope this answer the question for you. Thank you for using FIXYA. Jeff

I HAVE THE AMERICAN STANDARD WALK IN TUB WITH THE QUICK DRAIN AND WHEN I FILL IT UP TO USE THE JETS, THE DRAIN WILL NOT RELEASE TO LET THE WATER OUT. WHAT MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM?


It could be the pressure on the drain isn't allowing the rubber around the drain pop up to come unlodged from the floor of the tub. I have ran into this problem a few times. the best way we found to take care of it was to install a push pull type drain assembly or try and adjust the drain pop up so it pops up higher allowing the rubber around it to break the seal and start to drain. take some pictures and post them i might be able to help more

We have an American Standard lifetime whirlpool tub with the pop up drain (white). However, the pop up drain plug has always been tempermental but now it no longer wants to stay down.


Chances are that the drain assembly was not part of the tub but a 'generic' plumbing part. Is this pop up drain the type that you push down and it clicks closed and push down and then it pops up? It unscrews from the drain fitting and you can get a replacement at a big box store. A better pop up replacement is one called a Rapid-fit. It drains faster.

I need the installations for a American Standard


I had a similar problem where the Drain-Kit that I ordered was missing a part. After contacting American Standard and requesting a schematic. I realized that the missing part was the rocker assembly with stopper. I have a PDF of the schematic that I can send you if you still need it. Let me know. The alternative is to contact American Standard directly between 8am and 6pm Eastern and request the information. The phone number is (800) 442-1902 Option 3 then 1 then 2. Tell the person that you need the installation instructions for a 1583.470.xxx universal bath drain.
