I don't understand how to get this working. When workibg properly, you rotate a wheel on the frontof the bathtub and the drain plug would rise to drain or fall to plug. Recently somehow it stopped rising and falling. I can't figureout how to reset it. I feel like I need to fiddle with the screws at the bottom somehow to get the length of the screw right, but I don't know. Can anyone clarify or give some advice.

  • Hello, and welcome to Home Improvement. Would you add a picture of the drain (without the plug)? And, you should probably take our tour so you'll know how best to participate here. – Daniel Griscom Jul 18 '19 at 2:32

It's probably a mechanism something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Keeney-645PVC-Driven-Stopper-Schedule/dp/B000DZQQQO/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=cable+tub+drain&qid=1563479841&s=gateway&sr=8-2

In that drain hole should be an attachment to a cable that runs to the "wheel" you described.

  • That's definitely it. So how do I reconnect it? – spindoctor Jul 19 '19 at 15:16
