It is also important to know how to remove the drain plug from the bathtub if the bathtub is not installed correctly. When the power is turned on, the contact surface that does not touch the bottom of the bathtub cannot hold water properly, making it difficult to wash.
Perhaps you can fix the problem and change the plug. The first step in figuring out how to remove the drain plug in your bathtub is to find out what type of connector you have.
Now that you know how to remove all types of drain plugs, it’s time to find out why draining is slow. After removing the tub plug, use a flashlight to inspect the drain.
Emptying the bathtub slowly can cause hair, soap, and other foreign matter to accumulate in the drain. If the barrier doesn’t fall too far and you’re brave enough, you can tear off the filter and remove it yourself.
