: My tub wont hold water, i have removed the overflow plate but cannot get the plunger out. shoudn't that just pull up and out of the pipe?

Reply:
Soap scum build-up and hair can prevent the plunger assembly from lifting out easily. If it is brass and not plastic, spray WD40 into the overflow and try to jiggle the linkage while pulling it upward.
To allow the tub to hold water, you may need to clean and adjust it or replace the complete assembly.
Good Luck. e-plumber
