The drain popup in the tub in our house is stuck in the closed position with a small amount of water in the tub. I cannot get it to budge. It doesn't seem like the mechanism is broken as there is tension. I plunged the toilet to see if perhaps there was a vacuum in the drain line that wouldn't discharge but that didn't do a thing. Any ideas how I can get this open. We have no working showers currently as the remodel is just finished and the stone in the showers is not sealed! So this bathtub is really important. It is a relatively new 6 mos assembly that is fairly modern in nature with a large curved handle that pulls up or pushes down to open and close. Any help would be immensly appreciated.
