In response to Re: Replacing bathtub drains
: I am trying to replace my bathtub drain. I have gotten a pair of plyers and broken loose the drain from the tub, but I cannot get the drain itself out. It just spins and spins. I am not sure if it is cross-threaded or what. But now that I have broken loose the drain, I cannot use the tub till I replace it with a new one, since the putty come out and I feel that running water might run under the tub causing an even further problem. Can anyone help??

Sounds like there might be a gasket on the other side.Pull up on the strainer hard, wiggling it and twisting as you do so.If you have spun it free from the drain then that is all there is to undo.Sometimes the old hardened putty can hold it in place as well. Good luck
