Bathtub Faucet and Valves
Tub and shower faucets work much like sink faucets, but they are oriented horizontally rather than vertically and their parts are usually larger. A two-handle stem shower faucet has a stem with a washer that presses against a seat to seal off water. A three-handle unit adds a stem like diverter to direct water up to the shower or down to the tub spout.Tub cartridge faucets work just like sink cartridge faucets. Usually the faucet only turns water on and off; a diverter valve on the spout directs water to the showerhead or the spout. Shower faucets come in different designs, each with slightly different inner parts and valves. The shower faucets can some time become a nightmare and need immediate attention. They either break from handle or from the movement parts in site the faucet.

Bath Tubs

A Bath Tub is a large container for holding water in which a person may take a bath. Most modern bathtubs are made of acrylic or fiberglass, but alternatives are available in enamel, over steel or cast iron, and occasionally waterproof finished wood. A bathtub is usually placed in a bathroom either as a stand-alone fixture or in conjunction with a shower. Modern bathtubs have overflow and waste drains and may have taps also called shower mounted on them. They may be built-in or freestanding or sometimes sunken. Until recently, most bathtubs were roughly rectangular in shape but with the advent of acrylic thermoformed baths, more shapes are becoming available. Bathtubs are commonly white in color although many other colors can be found.

Today's bathrooms feature an array of shower and tub designs. Most are conventional tub & shower combinations, others are ornate with a variety of water jets, shower heads and faucet designs. At Mr. Drain ® Plumbing our licensed plumbing specialists are masters of all bathtub installation and, bathtub drain repairs, water pressure issues and even installations/replacements. We are the experts to call for your bathroom plumbing solutions. From an ordinary fiberglass tub to a Jacuzzi Mr. Drain ® Plumbing are expert in it. We will either fix or replace your tub.

Bath Tubs and their Make

Bath tubs may be either built into a three-wall alcove or freestanding. Built-in tubs range from familiar tub/shower combinations to ultra-modern, computerized whirlpool tubs that automatically deliver and maintain a given water temperature. Freestanding tubs come in many styles, too, from classic claw-footed tubs to elegantly sleek, jetted models.

The best bathtubs are made from enameled cast iron. Though they're incredibly heavy, particularly in large sizes, cast-iron tubs have deep, durable finishes. Tubs made from fiberglass-reinforced acrylic are also good, and, because they're lighter and more easily molded, they tend to come in larger, more intricate styles than cast-iron types. Some tubs are also made of fiberglass, but these tend to fade in direct sunlight and scratch a little too easily.

Bathtub parts and how they work
Bathtub drains have two legs, one to the main drain opening and the other to the overflow drain opening. To close and open the drain, two different assemblies are common: pop-up and plunger-type. Both are operated by a trip lever at the overflow drain.With a pop-up drain, linkage forces the drain stopper up or down by way of a rocker arm. With the plunger type, a hollow brass plunger slides up and down inside the drain assembly to seal the drain opening.Bathtubs are available in many styles including classic claw-footed, sleek, jetted models, freestanding, modern computerized bathtubs etc.
  • Most bathtubs are made from enameled cast iron. Other material used to make bathtubs include fiberglass-reinforced acrylic, fiberglass, and porcelain.
  • The conventional length of a bathtub is 5 feet but they can also be custom made in terms of material, length and depth depending on your requirement.
How Bathtubs Work

Freestanding bathtubs are most common. A freestanding bathtub installed in the corner of a bathroom creates a good illusion. How it works basically depends on its design and plumbing.

Bathtub drains have two legs, one to the main drain opening and the other to the overflow drain opening. Two different assemblies- pop-up and plunger-type are used to close and open the drain. These are operated by a trip lever.

Freestanding bathtub plumbing works the same as any regular bathtub plumbing. It has a drain in the front, joining to the drain pipe adjacent to the hot and cold water pipes that stop at the tub or it can even continue up for shower.

How Tub Drain Pop-up Work

Pop-up stoppers move up and down to open or close drains in tubs. Although the stoppers in bath tubs look similar from the outside, the mechanisms hidden within the drains are somewhat different.

The knob is actually the head of a lift rod fastened to a clevis, a connecting bar. The clevis connects to a pivot rod and ball assembly, that is, a rod that runs through a rubber pivot ball and slopes slightly uphill to the tailpiece of the stopper.

Pushing the knob and the lift rod down causes the pivot rod to push the stopper up; pulling the knob causes the pivot rod to pull the stopper down. If you want to remove the assembly you may be able to pull it right out. You may have to twist it, however, to unhook it from the clevis.

You raise and lower tub pop-ups with a lever at the tub's overflow plate. The lever operates a lift linkage that pulls on a spring. The spring pulls a rocker arm that raises and lowers the stopper. It is usually very simple to pull out the stopper and rocker arm linkage.

Tub Drain Cleaning
Tub Drain when clogs show their own challenges. The clog is caused usually by hair and soap buildup in the trap and drainpipe. It's a rule of thumb when you're taking a shower you should never see standing water in the tub. Properly functioning drains should carry the water away almost instantly. If water covers the shower floor and your feet, you have a clogged shower drain, which will eventually become completely blocked. A Mr. Drain Plumbing ® service technician skilled in shower repair techniques will use one of Mr. Drain ® Roto Junior 100 tub and shower drain cleaning machines to clean the drain of any and all debris, restoring it to new condition.In very few cases the Drain Snake doesn't work if you have sludge, grease and gunk built in for years. At that point you need to clean the drain lines under 3000 PSI pressure of water. Consider Mr. Drain Hydro Flush ® for more details....Learn More
