Are you looking for the bathroom sink stopper? The bathroom sink stopper is used most of the time. However, the stopper is not that helpful most of the time. Most of the time, it does not get the job done. The only thing you can use it for is to close the trap over the drain.
It does not matter what kind of bathroom sink stopper you use, but it should be in good condition. You need it to close so water stays out of the sink and you need it to open so quick to let water drain. If it is worn, then it is useless to you. In addition, if the trap has rusted or bent, then you should replace it as soon as possible.
You need a pair of pliers for this task. You can either make your own pair of pliers or you can go to your local hardware store and grab one. It will not take long to find a pair of pliers that will fit your nut. Do not forget to buy a new set of pliers so you do not have to go back and buy another one.
To remove a bathroom sink stopper, you need to unscrew the nut at the bottom of it. Start by removing the whole stopper. You can either do this with one hand at first or with two hands. If you are using two hands, you can hold the pliers in one hand and the rounded nut in the other. Be sure to secure the pliers in your hands before you try to unscrew it from the round nut.
Once you have removed the entire bathroom sink stopper, it is time to remove the gunk. Your sink is likely to have some gunk in it. If you have never done this before, you are in for some practice. You will need to pull out the drain pipe under your sink and then push the plunger down until the gunk is released. This is going to be messy, so you might want to make sure there are no items on the floor below when you start. Make sure you wear protective gloves.
Now it is time to remove the plumber’s putty. To remove the plumber’s putty, you need to turn off the water in your bathroom sink and get a pair of long-handled pliers. You will also need to loosen the nut that attaches the stopper to the wall. To do this, you will need to turn the vertical lever of the plumber’s putty wrench clockwise. Once the plumber’s putty is loosened, you can pull off the stopper from the wall using the long-handled pliers.
After you have successfully loosened the bathroom sink stopper, you need to locate the horizontal pivot rod. This is also a tight spot, so it may take a little bit of work to get it out. Start by unbolting the nuts holding the rod to the wall. Once the nuts are loose, you need to unscrew the two screws holding the two pieces of the rod together. Once you have the threaded end of the horizontal pivot rod out, you will notice that it is now exposed. The end of the vertical pole needs to be exposed as well.
Now it is time to remove the faucet that uses the bathroom sink stopper bolt to attach the faucet to the wall. First, you will need to take off the handle. Then you will need to pull the faucet straight up off the wall. Then you can simply pull the knob straight out and place it somewhere safe on the ground. You can then re-attach the handle to its corresponding hole.
