In response to Re: bathtub up and down lever
: : I have an old bathtub installed in 1965. My drain up and down lever broke in the closed position. I took out the screws and removed the level and the whole thing came out the hole. The drain is stuck in the closed position. I don't need the lever as I always take a shower. How do I get the drain open? Thank you.

: The picture on the right shows an overflow trip lever waste with a plunger that may have become disconnected from the linkage in your case or the bathtub drain is just clogged and needs to be snaked and cleaned.
: If the plunger is in fact stuck in the overflow, you need to fish it out with a wire with a hook at the end. Have patience.
