In response to Re: bathtub drain won't close
: My bathtub drain is stuck open. So far I've removed the drain cover and taken off the faceplate, and tried to manually push down the mechanism leading down to the drain, but it seems stuck. What should I do?

Look inside the drain and see what actually operates the drain plug, from the lift-close lever. If there is a linkage inside the vent it has a curved brass linkage that leans against the inside pipe wall of the connecting drain (It makes the bend at the "tee") and connacts to the drain plug. See if you can drop the drain plug into the drain, and then turn it (Rotate) about a half turn, and cause it to fall a bit further into the drain hole. If so, pull it back out again and look at how it hooks into the linkage inside the drain.
