      My tub will not drain and I’m wanting to get the overflow plate off but not sure how to go about it. It has a handle that turns side to side and moves a rod in the drain, but doesn’t actually stop it. There is one screw in the handle and none on the plate itself, do I pry it off? Please tell me what I need to do!

      TIA,
      Jennifer

      Nevermind. I couldn’t get that darn overflow plate off so I went in through the trap, which got me drenched with sludge but proved to be for the best since the clog was just past the trap.

      Thanks for not helping!

      you dont seem too upset about the sludge, you may have a career in plubing in your future! When my tub stops i just stomp on the drain hole HARD with the biggest part of my foot. the resulting water hammer gets the sludge-a-goin’ jack
