Hey there, I have a bath tub that has a drain that is the kind that you pull up the drain and twist for it to stay up and drain the water away. If you want the water not to drain away, you twist it and it plops down and seals the drain.

Well, now you can twist all you want, but it won't stay up, so a quick solution I have is to use my wife's razor and plug it under the drain while taking a shower

Any clue how to fix this? Thanks a bunch.

Remove the 2 screws that hold the overflow plate on the tub. Pull out the mechanism and inspect it for wear. Your stopper may be worn also and it won't catch the spring. If your strainer has a threaded tap in it, then you might want to consider a tip-toe drain. It's just a stopper with an up and down stop and release rubber seal. If that doesn't solve your problem, have the entire waste and overflow replaced. Good Luck, Tom
