https://www.youtube.com/embed/oCf7_EsAj68 today we're going to use a do-it-yourself that tub drain removal tool to remove the bathtub drain from an old bathtub so we start by removing the old drain plate and then my purpose for doing this is I want to replace the old-style drain plate with a pop-up stopper so in order to do that we have to remove this collar right here from the drain and so instead of ordering a special extraction tool I've actually created my own ax to It Yourself extraction tool that uses a noodle needle nose pliers and an adjustable wrench so what we do is we take put the needle nose pliers down in the hole on the holes neither side of the collar so they're as deep as you can get them and fairly symmetrical and then we take they just wrench and we torque on it to remove it…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/VCd0d6hjsDc so here we have a double sink in the kitchen and it has a plug drain as you can see a few things to consider when you're going to clear the drain if it's not working at all as far as flowing I know some people use drain on that type of stuff if you're going to try any chemicals and I'm not a chemical fan at all but if you're going to try any chemicals I personally would use use them if the drain was flowing slowly there's no sense in working at the drain for a while then saying okay I'm going to go buy some chemicals put it down the drain and if it doesn't work you're going to have to take the drain apart down below and have to handle the chemicals so the last resort as far as I'm concerned is scalpels for clearing…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/5ajvSQPvT1k Hi I’m Stephany and welcome to Repair and Replace, your online resource for quick and easy repairs. Today we’re going to install a mechanical pop-up drain in a bathroom sink. To begin you’ll need a mechanical pop-up drain, plumbers putty, channel lock pliers, a plastic container and a cloth. The drain collar, or flange, helps connect the waste pipe and drain of your sink. Over time, the metal of the collar can become rusted or cracked. Even though this collar sits above the sink’s drain, you will need to replace the whole drain assembly.First, place the plastic container under the sink and drain the P-Trap. Use the channel lock pliers to loosen and unscrew the nut on the back of the trap. Now, unscrew the second nut and remove the trap. If you have a P-Trap without a drain, simply loosen the nut and pivot the trap out of…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/OhjWW34kxEs Hello this is Dustin with Home Mender and today we’re going to show you how to change a basket strainer in a kitchen sink. Not that hard and no reason to pay a plumber 100 bucks to do it when you can do it for 8 bucks. Let’s get to it. Now sometimes these guys leak, sometimes they’re corroded, sometimes they just get nasty. Either way we’re going to pull this one out and change it.The first thing we’re going to do is take the trap off and empty it. There’s no need to valve off the water since we’re working on a drain line only. Now under your kitchen sink may look a little different and you may not have to remove the trap but for this demonstration we will and have a bowl ready to drain it. Careful not to spill the water. It’s pretty gross and…
