Discuss HELP! Tub stopper stuck in closed position in the Fittings & Pipes area at

    I accidentally jammed the tub stopper and it won't come out, instead of using the level I just pushed it down... Is there any way to fix this without taking all the system apart? Or Do I also just need to get a new waste system for the tub?

    Try a rubber sucker, like the end of a child's toy arrow or similar. Pull gently on the sucker while pushing the lever down.

    Take the bath trap off and push up from underneath. Should work and push free.

    If the pop up unit has gone, id recommend replacing the whole waste with a sprung waste... alot less bother in the future
