I have a tub with metal stopper that is somehow secured into the bottom of the tub. I have tied to turn it, lift and turn it, etc. but can’t seem to get the stopper out. There is no linkage, just a stopper. Thinking the thread was stripped, I tried my other tub but it is the same – turn and turn and nothing happens.
This is the type of drain stopper which is not controlled by any kind of linkage. It issimpy pulled “up” to b open or pushed “down” to be closed. My drain is very slow and I need to get the stopper out so I can properly clean my drain. Tried all sorts of liquid drain openers to no avail. Still slow to drain.
I would rather that you asked and felt foolish, than to start working on the drain with all the tools in your toolbox and wind up with a major job. I have had many customers turn 1 minute jobs into nightmares.
