I have taken it in and out several times, I have tried to adjust it,I tried to make sure the connecting hoops had not slipped although that's hard to know. I was going to try a new set up ? Di Di

There are no hoops, so I'll guess you mean the tapered plactic seating washers. Is it leaking at the joints or around the drain it's self.

The tub will not hold water for a bath. I have taken out the drain stopper out several times and put it back in. DiDi

Take a look at this picture.
The water is likely passing *around* the drain flange where the stopper goes.

Want to try to replace that?

Are you referring to the stopper as in your other post? If so, only one post is needed

Remove the lever assembly and try running it with just the bucket and rod temporarily to see if it will hold water,if it still doesnt hold water you have bigger issues

If the bucket is the stopper at the end of the inside assembly and by assembly I mean the two parts of metal that are linked together with the end stopper that goes down the pipeline. I have had that in and out trying to figure out the proper adjustment. I try what you said . Di Di
