Stuborn bathtub drain removal
Posted by Tom Fetherston on February 07, 19101 at 13:08:46:
I got a leak that I finally tracked down to the tub drain. I need to remove the drain and replace it and the seals. Problem is that it's been in there 18 years and doesn't want to unscrew. I've already knocked off one of the spokes going to the screw hole for the drain strainer.
Any tips, tools to get this out? It's brass into brass on an cast iron tub.
Additionally, what should I use as sealant for the new drain ( a toe pop-up), anything underneath other than the rubber sealing ring?
