Found ya'll today and read all the plumbing posts!!
I am trying to remove the tub drain stopper from the drain. It appears to be a lift and turn type which should just screw off, but mine doesn't have a set screw. I have tried pliers, but it only goes so far and then nothing. Any suggestions?
Also, I am thinking of removing the cultured marble wall surround and replacing it with either a 3 piece plastic type, or going with ceramic tile. Any thoughts on this?? The current surround is loose, and it looks like there is only sheetrock behind it. Would I need to remove the SR and replace it with green board??
I didn't do it exactly as you said, but something clicked - and worked . I reached under the top and held the stem, then unscrewed the top. TA-DAA!! the top came off and I was able to get the nasty glob of my daughter's long hair out of the drain.
Next question - what is the best (easiest) way to clean a tub that the kids have not really cleaned well in years? Lots of soap scum and some rust marks. Also has those awful non-slip appliques that I have removed, but the shape is still there.
