removing a tub drain


Recommended Posts


Sounds like you provide pretty comprehensive inspection service..lol.

I used to remodel kitchens and baths and often resorted to the following techniques, not necessarily in the order given:

Use the handles of a channel lock pliers inserted into the drain and try turning with another channel locks.

Use a sawzall to cut a 1/2" piece out of the flange (two vertical cuts).

Use a chisel and hammer to turn it out, first striking perpendicular to create a bite mark.

Decide the tub should be changed and use a sledge.

Good Luck!!
