How to Fix a Tub Stopper That Stopped Holding Water

A malfunctioning tub stopper can be a frustrating issue to deal with, especially if it no longer holds water. However, you no longer need to immediately call a plumber or replace the entire drain system. Now, you can easily fix the problem yourself with a few simple steps using the Watco SimpliQuick® Tub Fix White Finish stopper and drain cover in one.

Assess the problem to know if you need to perform a simple cleaning and repair, or if you need to replace the entire bathtub drain. Sometimes, the tub stopper is misaligned and does not provide a tight seal which can result in water leaking out. Luckily, Watco universal tub stoppers allow you to install a new tub stopper without removing the existing drain. 

If a new tub stopper is needed, Watco offers universal tub stoppers that will match your specific tub configuration, along with repair parts and overflow plates. You no longer need to worry about measuring the diameter or depth of your existing drain, or if you will have to replace broken cross bars. Watco provides innovative installation solutions like a reversible composite pin to fit most drains or a silicone adhesive in case your crossbars are missing.  You can rest easy knowing you are covered by a limited 5-year warranty from Watco.
