The rust around the drain bothers me. About the only tubs that will rust that way are steel tubs, and when it happens, it usually means that the tub has rusted out around the drain and when you remove the drain you will find a larger hole than is supposed to be there. If that is the case when you remove the drain, you will just have to bust your budget and install a new tub.

: I have a leak coming from somewhere around the bathtub drain. There is rust all around the drain on the surface
: of the tub so I'm hoping it's just that the drain is old and needs to be replaced. The tub wrench that I have
: doesn't grab onto any notches like the directions in a book that I have explain. Is there anothe way to get this off?
: I do have full access from the back of the tub, the stove is on the opposite wall and I am planning on putting in
: an access panel anyway, can I get to it from here?
: I'm really not budgeted to change the whole tub at this time, please tell me that there is an easier way.
