If it is leaking from around the flange then you will need access to the under side of the tub drain to 1) tighten the drain connection or 2) replace the tub drain connection or 3) remove the drain, clean it and replace it again properly with the rubber washer and plumbers putty.

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


If the drain is one like this

https://www.plumbingsupply.com/images/foot-actuated-tub-closure.jpg

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

http://www.mustknowhow.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/drain.jpg

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

http://images.meredith.com/diy/images/2009/02/p_SCP_167_08.jpg

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.

Leaking jacuzzi jet


The workings of a bath jet...From the inside of the Bath there is a wall fitting that threads from the inside of the tub into the jet body located on the outside wall of the tub.
If the jet is leaking at this point behind the tub then you should take the wall fitting out of the tub and put a small bead of 100% RTV silicone around the flange of the wall fitting and reinstall it.
If however, the leak is from the PVC piping going into the jet then you will need to replace the jet.

Hansgrohe 88509000 sink drain does not close completely, water slowly drains out


This could be caused by the installation. If the installer did not use plumber's putty between the the flange and basin it will not seal with the basin. Another possible cause is if the basin is not perfectly formed it will cause the flange to oval or not seat evenly. If this is the case it may leak between the flange and the basin or the stopper may not seat all the way down and it may leak between the stopper and flange.

When installing do you silicone each piece for example the faucet , the soap dispenser ,the sprayer , and the tap


Hi seawitch678,

If you have a granite or stone countertop/sink, use silicone as plumber's putty will stain the stone. Plumber's putty is petroleum based so it will not adhere to stone. Normally you should use what the manufacturer recommends and where they recommend. When installing a faucet, put either around the base of any piece that goes through the countertop.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

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.

  • 5

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

    The sink drain leaks


    Sounds like plumbers putty un drain flange to sink may need to be replaced or strainer may need to be tighten up a little to see if that stops the leak.

    Removing bath drain


    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!

    The order of installation starting from the top side is the flanged drain then a bead of plumber's putty, and don't skimp on the putty. On the bottom side, first the rubber gasket then the metal washer, finally the locking ring. You must use the plumber's putty between the sink\tub surface and the flange. My mom thought the same thing. She return her drain twice before she asked me why it was leaking:)
    Hope this helps.
