Leaky Sink Pop-up Plugs
Posted by AirMojo on April 01, 2004 at 16:03:02:
My wife keeps complaining that the water slowly drains out of the bathroom sinks. She wants to wash out some small clothes items, like stockings and a sweater, etc.

The pop-up plugs just do not seem to seal tight enough; the seal is basically a flimsy piece of plastic or rubber. I replaced one with a new one to see if it made a difference, but it also slowly leaked out.

Is there a secret to getting these plugs to seal tight so they don't leak ?

I told her to wash them out in a small plastic tub, but she wants to use the sink.

The only thing I can come up with is to get one of the old-fashioned rubber plugs (if I can find one to fit!) so she can use it in one of the sinks.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks !
