    I am having quite a bit of difficulty removing the drain to the bathtub as it seems to be "frozen" in place. I have tried using one of the Drain-removal tools but still no luck. If one of the readers has a good solution, I would be most appreciative. Also, is removing this old drain going to cause more problems down the line.

    Thank you.

    Sometimes the only way to remove an old drain is to drill many holes around the perimeter of the drain and chisel it out.

    John have you used or know anyone who has used the strainer removal tool at jones? I've never know any to work on a brass strainer into a brass shoe after twenty years.
