Before Calling a Plumber

If the tub won't retain water with the drain lever up, chances are the plunger is either too high or low to block the drain completely. Remove the overflow plate and plunger assembly. Shorten or lengthen the adjustment rod, reassemble, and try again. If the adjustment makes the leak worse, readjust the rod—this time in the opposite direction.
If the tub drains too slowly, the drain is probably clogged. Remove the overflow plate and plunger, and feed a drain auger down, the opening to clear the blockage.
How It Works
When the drain lever is raised, the lift rod pushes down on the spring, which pushes down on the end of the rocker arm. The opposite end of the rocker arm rises, lifting the fluted stopper, which allows water to escape into the drain. After the tub has drained, a small amount of water remains in the trap, preventing sewer gas from rising into the house.

Before Calling a Plumber
If the tub won't retain water with the drain lever down, and the stopper is firmly seated, replace the rubber stopper seal.
If the tub still drains too slowly, the drain is clogged, Remove both drain lever and shopper assemblies, and feed a drain auger down the drain lever opening to clear the blockage.
If you've ever looked under a sink or been in an attic and seen a plastic, white, mushroom-like object coming out of the drain line, it's probably an AAV, or air-admittance valve. An AAV is a handy alternative to a through-the-roof vent and can be a lifesaver for remodel work. However, check with your inspector before installing an local codes may limit its use.

An AAV is a one-way air valve—meaning it lets fresh air come in, but does not let air go back out. It is used to vent a single fixture or group of fixtures. However, a home still needs at least one vent line extending outside. Here's how an AAV works: When negative air pressure accumulates inside the pipe to which it is attached, its valve door opens to admit air into the drain lines. This prevents the water in the trap from being sucked out by a vacuum. AAVs are easier on your home's roof: You don't have to worry about a leak via roof penetration, and the roofer can put the roof on faster. You also don't have to cut holes between floors (ruining fire stops). I have used AAVs for many years without problems. Because of this it rarely run an individual vent in a remodel. An AAV can serve as an individual vent for a single-plumbing fixture or as a group vent for several fixtures, including a complete add-on bath group. To vent a new sink with an AAV, bring the drain pipe out of the wall and into a 1 /-in. T pointing straight up. Out of the top, install a short piece of pipe terminating in a female fitting. The AAV screws into that. Secure it with teflon tape on the threads. The trap then connects to the front of the T-fitting. AAVs can also be installed both under the sink and in the wall immediately above the sink behind a louvered and accessible cover.
