I have a tub with a drain stopper that isn't working. Since we are replacing the gold trim with brushed nickle I want to replace the overflow cover and strainer too.
When I removed the overflow cover, I discovered there is no linkage attached to the lever. I have done some searching here and it looks like the stopper should be at the bottom of the drain and the tub shouldn't drain. My tub drains.
So what is going on? How do I fix it?
