In response to Re: Bathtub drain--PLEASE HELP
If you have a spiral spring at the end of the rod, then your drain opening in the bottom of the tub should just be a round hole with no crossbars and there should be a plug that pops up and down to seal the drain.
If the drain lever does not stay in position, the lever is probably worn out. Replace it and also clean any hair and other debris which is caught in the spiral.


: My bathtub drains VERY slow (1 shower approx. 6 hours) It is not clogged because it has done it before and all of a sudden work and then stop again. But here is the real question, The overflow cover with the switch like thing that suppose to open and close the drain it is just loose, I mean you push it down and goes right back up like it is not connected to anything. I took the cover off and pulled it up the pipe, (I have no idea what it suppose to look like so I am gonna explain) The plate with the toggle thing is connected to a rod that goes down to a spring and that is it, does there suppose to be a stopper or something on the end. If so is there anyway of getting that stopper out. I am so confused. Someone please help me. I dont even know what the pipes (diagram) would look like behind a bathtub. Thank you--Wade
