The broken linkage chain was removed from our tub a couple of years ago. All has been good until now the plunger has fallen shut and the water drains v e r y, v e r y s l o w l y. any suggestions how to get it unstuck? I don't even need it to be there are all, so if it can be remove that is just as well.

You could try fishing the plunger out with a coat hanger, or a scrap piece of solid core electrical wire. –  Tester101 Sep 9 '13 at 15:55
    
Thank you, I did try try that. Didn't seem flexible enough. –  Angie Sep 9 '13 at 16:06
    
Fish tape may be able to be flexible enough but if you just want to remove it you'll need access to the pipes below the tub to determine if you just have to replace the fittings or you need to cut out pieces and replace. –  Dopeybob435 Sep 27 '13 at 20:43
