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.

Drains are different. Try unscrewing it or pulling or even holding on to the inner most part while unscrewing .

Okay, remove 2 phillips head screws at lever handle/overflow.

Pull firmly with much effort and bowing the connecting rod a bit.

Up will come a heavy duty spring on the end of the rod.(prolly a big slimly hair ball too!)

Hope you get the spring, cause that's what works the drain stop.

If spring doesn't come out you'll have to "fish" it out.

Clean everything up real good and flush drain good also now.

The "Secret" now is to put the Lever,rod and spring assembly back in and replace screws and get the lever flipped to the left BEFORE you put the Drain Stop in.

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.

I stopper on a garden tub with a delta faucet. The stopper pushes down and locks to stop water. It takes a few tries pushing it down to get it to stop and hold water. What is the best way to fix it or...


In my part of the country, the type of drain you refer to is commonly called a tip-toe drain because you can use your toes to open and close the drain. Their locking ability diminishes over time and use, and eventually won't lock at all. They cannot be repaired, and must be replaced. You must remove the one you have to get the correct replacement because there are variations in the thread diameter at the bottom of the stopper.
You will need to use pliers large enough to grab around the white plastic underneath the top of the stopper that appears to disappear into the drain. Once you have the white plastic shaft secured with pliers, grab the very top (the chrome part) and twist it counterclockwise to remove it. Once that is off you will see a round piece of brass that looks like the top of a very large screw. IT IS! Using a stantard screw driver, again turn counterclockwise to finish removing the rest of the stopper.
A good hardware store should have a replacement for you. Be sure to match up the thread diameter at the bottom of the stopper.
To reinstall, you can reverse the steps or simply thread the complete assembly into place.

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

My 2000 kohler tub drain leaks. The drain itself


Need clarification....the drain leaks to the ceiling below, or it doesn't hold water? If it doesn't hold water, no need to replace the ring. Those can be adjusted. Simply pull up on on the lever and screw it in clockwise. This will lower the stop and hold the water. If it actually leaks below, unscrew said stopper, grab a pair of needle nose pliers and place them in the drain (to grab the strainer) and use another pair to loosen. Once off, clean around drain and clean strainer, apply plumbers putty to the strainer, apply pipe "dope" (thread sealant) to the threads and tighten back in. Good luck!

Drain stopper in the bathtub has come off how do you reinstall when the stopper turns with a knob on the tub


the stopper just sits in the hole. When you turn the knob the cable operates the piece that raises and lowers the drain plug. The weight of it and the suction of the water is what seals it....provided the o-ring is good on the plug.

The tub/water stopper...how do you take that off to unclog hair in the drain?


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.
