Discuss HELP! Tub stopper stuck in closed position in the Fittings & Pipes area at

    I accidentally jammed the tub stopper and it won't come out, instead of using the level I just pushed it down... Is there any way to fix this without taking all the system apart? Or Do I also just need to get a new waste system for the tub?

    Try a rubber sucker, like the end of a child's toy arrow or similar. Pull gently on the sucker while pushing the lever down.

    Take the bath trap off and push up from underneath. Should work and push free.
