My rental has a tub and shower that is leaking at the tub drain. It seems that somehow the brass elbow drain fitting has a crack in it or something.
Anyhow, I took the pipe off but I can't get the piece that screws in through the top of the tub into the elbow below out. Its like the brass threads have been fused or something.
In more proper terms (had to look this one up), the tub basket will not unscrew from the tub shoe..
I was just going to return with the cordless sawzall and cut it off but thought I should ask her first.

If the tube has come loose from the shoe, or is brittle so it WILL snap loose, NOTHING will unscrew it. You have to cut it out with a hacksaw blade and small chisel or screwdriver.
