Problem with a stuck metal bathtub plug?
The bathtub at my mother's house is stuck down.
Unfortunately it's not a standard rubber plug but one of those very nice looking but overly complicated metal plugs that you screw into the drain and then push down on it to seal/unseal it.
The reason i think it is stuck down is that the rubber seal for the plug that fits around the screw down part needed replacing and I don't think my mother replaced it with the right type of rubber o ring seal.
So it's stuck down and despite pushing it down it won't release and drain the water away. It's chrome plated so I know if I try to unscrew using some grips it will scratch and ruin the finish (and I've already tried to unscrew it by hand but I just can't get enough of a grip).
Any help would be appreciated!
