It's one of those pop-up ones. I've unscrewed the pop-up part to look
into the drain from the tub. Still drains slowly. Virtually not at
all. Is it possible there is air trapped somewhere? I replaced
everything up to the U. That was untouched.
Can you run a plumbing snake through the drain and trap? Perhaps some debris
fell into the drainpipe while you were working on it..if so then hopefully
you can clear up the clog. Hopefully it's not a tool or anything else solid
that you wont be able to clear out easily.
How fast did it drain before you changed the tub?
Ya know? That's exactly what it was. Not *in* the trap, but on the
downstream side where it meets to vent up and drain down. Chock full
o' nassssty little bits of ick from the inside of the pipes. Chopped
it all out (love them old pipes!) and hopefully it'll be a quick job to
replace. Not being naive, just optimistic! Thanks to all for your
