If you are renovating a bathroom in an older house, the bathtub drains may be out of date as tub drains are one of the last things anyone thinks of to update. Some older homes may not even have a functional bathtub stopper making it impossible to take a bath. This is especially important if you have young children who need to take a bath instead of a shower.
The good news is that there are now modern products available which make it very simple to install a bathtub drain cover and tub stopper, no matter how old your tub is. The majority of bathtub drains include a crossbar where a stopper screws into it. This is typically a 3/8 inch or 5/16 inch threaded hole which the drain cover or stopper is easily screwed into. Some older tubs don’t even have this crossbar, leaving you wondering how to install a tub stopper without calling in professional help.
Newer products now exist such as the SimpliQuick® Tub Fix solution from Watco, a company recognized for providing reliable, durable and innovative tub drain repair products. Watco tub repair products are designed with easy installation in mind, and the SimpliQuick® Tub Fix couldn’t be easier.
