In response to Re: Replacing tub/shower drain
: We have a Lasco 2603 shower tub combo, (which probably doesn't matter) and I want to get rid of the stopper drain system on it. It has the little knob right on the drainhole that you pull up to open and push down to close. The drain is always plugging up and you can't plunge it, get into the drain to remove hair, etc. How are these removed? As I stated, the one stopper part just turns and I can't see what to grab hold of to turn it out.Any help please???

: Thanks

You don't go into the strainer to clear your drain. The push toe stoppers screw out of the strainer. They do get out of adjustment and cause slow drainage. If you can identify the brand of waste and overflow you may be able to purchase one and only use the faceplate and plunger mechanism if you want to replace the toe push stopper.
You're probably just out of adjustment though.
