I have lost the manual for my jacuzzi tub and I have to remove the drain stopper. How do I go about removing the stopper so I can remove all of the hair built up in the drain?

Thanks for your help.

Is this the manual "push-down " type of plug??...If so it will simply unscrew from the main drain housing.

Hello jim,

To get the tub strainer out, you're going to need a tub fork, teflon tape, and some plumbers putty.

1. remove the strainer with tub fork

2 clean off the hair clog

3 clean and dry tub strainer

4. Apply teflon tape to the threads and put putty around the rim of the strainer just above the threads

5. screw tub strainer back into the tub waste outlet nice and tight!

If you get stuck check out the diy network online.

Good luck!
