I have a sink in my house that doesn't have one of those little stick thingies that controls the drain plug. You know what I'm talking about. The problem is, the drain got closed and now I can't reopen it. Do you guys have any suggestions? I pretty much can't use that sink without overflowing it now.

press it down it might pop back up i have a drain plug just like that

whack your dick on it.

Go down underneath sink and move the lever down its behind the p-trap...

look better you moron


the switch is probably under the sink


there is no way its designed like this so something just broke off probably


go look for a hook underneath or something

Pour some bleach and ammonia into the sink together. It'll loosen it right up.

use a magnet faggot

how does that work?

Work a fork or a butter knife (something that won't seriously injure you if it slips) under one edge and try to pry it up. Not a good permanent solution but we had to do that with our bathroom sink drain and at least it drains. Get a plumber when you can for a more permanent solution.

The thing is, it wasn't originally installed, nor was it installed by a plumber. My dad made it himself out of parts so maybe he didn't include a lever

Put the theory of temperature vs foreskin shrivel to use.
If you put icey water in the sink, plug or foreskin will shrink.
Pop right out. u kno?


Just wd40 and pull it out u goober.
Use vicegrips if needs be

This thing is really tight. There's no way I'm prying this thing open.

>>581086872
I have no idea how that will help. I'm not too familiar with the internal workings of drain valves.

>>581086803
Now this is an idea that I'll try :^)

>>581087347
It's really hard to get a picture under there. This is a view from below, good look trying to make sense of this.

>>581087516
It does. Pulling on it does nothing. Twisting it around doesn't help either.
>>
drill with a screwdriver sideways in it untill you have enough grip to pull it out. will mess it up though

Here is a full view of under my sink.
>>
>>581087698
>It does. Pulling on it does nothing. Twisting it around doesn't help either.

My guess is the little rod that goes into the drain opening to hold the stopper in place has gotten corroded or gunk-encrusted and has become stuck. I'd try using pliers to pull the stopper up from the knob, just like
>> 581087524
said.

I doubt pictures from under the drain will help much if you didn't have a pop-up drain stopper mechanism there in the first place, like you stated in your original message.

This is where the drain connects with the piping.

>>581088537
I sort of doubt, considering this sink was built only 2 years ago and hasn't been used that much since then. I'll give it a try though

Have the plumbing done up to code by a real plumber in the future, and you'll probably avoid problems like this. I don't know what else to suggest for now, except having a plumber take a look at it if nothing that's been suggested has worked.

This is behind the drain, where the faucet connects to the water things.

>>581088993
Like I said, my dad built it himself. And he had no experience in plumbing, and wasn't even particularly handy.

>>581088867
so, you pull out this one (step 1 red). in dashed u can see it is plugged in.
then u get a bucket which is big enough to contain all the water in the sink.
go on to step 3(yellow) and twist the drain connection off.

If he's anything like my pops was growing up, then he probably used the cheapest parts he could find & rushed the job. GL when the rest of it wears down/breaks.

Here's another view of my pipes. I tried using pliers, and I figured that would be a good way to break my sink lol.

>>581089281
I'm going to try this. Thanks.
>>
>>581089469
>>581089281
Nooooooooooo! Don't do that OP...it makes mustard gases!
>>
>>581089469
if the water is still not draining, you can at least push the plug out with a maglite or something compareable. but keep the bucket ready!
>>
>>581089281
The dashed part doesn't pull out easy, I'm going to have to take apart the whole mess.
>>
>>581090049
You honestly can't pull that apart? It's not stuck then, you're just weak as piss.

>>OP confirmed for woman
>>
>>581090206
It's connected to all the other pipes, that's why.
>>
>>581089281
Seems like a reasonable approach, as getting the stopper loose from above doesn't seem to succeed.

One thing I thought is that the cheap-ass stoppers use rubber gaskets to create friction to hold the stopper central rod in the drain. These gaskets will harden with time, and might even become wedged in the drain, making removing the stopper quite difficult.

OP, please keep us updated on your progress on this sink drama!
>>
>>581088484
first off that drain plug should not be there..

second what the fuck is with this cheap ass plumbing. and 3rd who the fuck decided to use those pink plastic barrels (im not a plumber i just know enough to make shit work) to connect those supply hoses? Jesus..

status report: i got all the pipes off, just letting it drain into the bucket for a bit

>>581090353
I think the porcelain basin has more holes in it then ended up being used.
>>
>>581090861
typically there is a metal bar that runs to that for the drain handle.. in this case it appears to not be usable even. so why is that stop there?
>>
>>581090556
calm bro, the plumbing is quite okay, it's just a set with kitchen connections..
and the pink barrels as you call it, is sealing tape for connecting the flexible hoses with the nipple joint..
>>
>>581091103
Looked like pink plastic with some metal band to be honest.. I can't stand anything plastic being used in a pressurized situation. It is stupid
>>
I drained all the water. Going to pull out the drain now.

>>581091362
i want a picture of that plug

>>581090861
so, now you should be able to twist this connecting part off, counter clockwise
>>
>>581091329
WHo wants to bet the supply piping behind the hoses(in wall) is plastic or old as fuck steel piping?
>>
>>581091443
Going off the way the supply comes into that cabinet I would not be surprised if it's fucking PEX.
>>
>>581085023
Get the dude from the thread a week ago who stole a sink from Denny's to come and rip it off the wall
>>
>>581091419
So it turns out there isn't actually enough space to twist it off cause of the wood siding. And to make it worse, the wood siding itself is screwed into the wall.
>>
>>581091692
I remember that fucking thread.
>>
use a plunger op
>>
>>581085023
Look under sink. The thing you pull up and down is probably no longer attached to the popup. Either reattach or go to home depot and get new parts. Not very expensive.

If it's completely fuck ed just get a new pop-up assembly and ask someone there how to replace it. Easy as fuck to fix. Just use some common sense and take a look down there.
>>
>>581091743
Screencapped?

>>581092043
Should have screencapped it.

there is no pop up assembly like normally, because this is a kitchen drainpipe

>>581091741
it was looking like you can turn it around..
can you loosen it a bit, then you can turn the whole thing out from above
>>
>>581091741
hahahahahaha

>>581092043
Basically the guy went into a Denny's somewhere and robbed a bathroom sink for about 20 bucks worth of marble

I did it wiggling the pipe around until it was loose enough to twist out. The twisty part was covered with gunk and shit.

So should I just clean it and reinstall it, do you think?

sounds good. keep the plug away first and maybe look for another gasket or another plug.
there are some rubber plugs with a ring, so you can attach something for a better pull
>>
>>581092976
>So should I just clean it and reinstall it, do you think?
If after cleaning it doesn't look too bad and the rubber seals still make it tight, probably quite usable.
>>
>>581086332
You aren't saying you don't have one.
You just don't want the easy solutions and want /b/ to entertain you with thought.
>>
Licensed Union plumber here and let me say your father did a terrible job running those pipes lol made it way more difficult then it should of been glad you got it apart op but I would get a real plumber to redo that
>>
>>581093469
I don't have any of those. Also it's getting late, so I might just finish this up tomorrow.

>>581093523
I'll probably just reuse the same stuff, honestly.

i hope you can remember how to put it back together. but you have the pictures to just reverse the steps, so i am full of confidence that you will succeed.

my advice for the future is using one of these

>>581093864
>I'll probably just reuse the same stuff, honestly.
I'd recommend trying to figure out why the stopper got stuck that bad in the first place, though.
>>
Move
>>
>>581094016
Probably the gunk that was stuck on the screw, athough there is a bit of wear and tear on some parts. I'll figure it out when I have more time. For now, I'm going to sleep.
