In response to Re: Bathtub drain removal woes
: I am attempting to remove the tub from my bathroom and am having trouble getting the drain out. I purchased a drain removal tool which is not a perfect fit but seems to be biting. Even with a 12in steel rod inserted in the removal tool, the drain won't budge. Any ideas?

Just for the archives, a contractor was able to remove this for me. He said that 'plumbers putty' was between the drain lip and the ceramic of
the tub acting as an adhesive. He chiseled this out with a flat screwdriver and then the removal tool worked.
