These connections, as you may have experienced, can be a little tricky.

On the connecting rod at the back of the drain pipe, slip just one end of the ribbon spring over the rod. Then, pass the rod through one of the holes in the drain valve connector. Then slip the other end of the ribbon spring over the connecting rod.

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.

Belle Foret pop-up drain stopper won't release


The drain should be able to pop up after vigorous pushing down on it. When you get it released, you will find it is clogged with goo. You will have to disassemble the pop-up (remember the order of disassembly) and clean all the moving parts then reassemble 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.

Hair wrapped around the sink stopper. How do I remove the sink stopper to clean? it is hooked on to the little level to open or close drain but don't know how to get it off without breaking.


The lever it's hooked to under the sink it has a nut to loosen to pull lever back. Then the drain stopper will be able to be removed. Check out this link to get a look at the under neath to help you I hope.

The bathroom drain stopper will not stay closed.


there is a small compression nut on the drain, it needs to be tightened slightly. look under the sink when you pull the lever up close the stopper, you will see where it connects to the drain. tighten that nut slightly.
do not over tighten or you won't be able to move the stopper at all, you just need enough pressure to hold the weight of the lifting rod and stopper in place.

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.

Our bathroom pedestal sink is very slow drain and clogging -2 questiions: do you have to disassemble and take off sink mounts and remove from wall to get to elbow joint? I do not know how to disengage...


You shouldn't have to disassemble everything in order to get to the trap (elbow joint). Most pedestal sinks are designed so that you can get to the trap from the back (generally after getting down on your hands and knees and crawling around with a flashlight). Most sink stoppers that are worked from the faucet itself have a little bar that extends down the back of the sink behind the drain. It will clip with a little metal piece to a lever that sticks out the back of the drain before the trap. The lever goes through a hole in the drain and pokes into a hole in the bottom of your sink stopper. As you move the lever, you will notice that your stopper goes up and down.

Unclip the rod from the lever and you should be able to unscrew the lever from the back of the drain (don't loose the little gasket that sits inside the screw-cap as it keeps water from leaking out here). At this point, you can pull out the stopper and see what is going on. If cleaning off the stuff attached to your stopper doesn't solve the problem, you can then remove the trap to see if anything is clogging that. Hopefully, by this point, your sink clog has been identified and you just need to reassemble, making sure when you put your stopper lever back in that you actually get it into the appropriate hole in the stopper itself.

If this doesn't solve your problem, it's more serious and you probably want to call a plumber as the issue is either a clog farther along or a problem with the venting of the sink drain.

Bathroom sink stopper came unhooked and out, not attached anymore


You will need to get under there and unscrew the popup rod located on the back of the drain. pull out the rod, drop the stopper in there and push the rod through the hole in the bottom of the stopper. screw the nut back on.
