    My bathtub is full of water and will not drain. How do you remove the drain stop? I would like to snake out the pipe.

    fronty,

    I don't know what type of tub drain you have but if it includes an overflow you should snake through the overflow and not the shoe (drain).

      if the drain control is in the overflow, you can undo the cover and it should pull out of the overflow opening by a long jointed rod , it is a tubular like stopper that covers or blocks the drain and yet will let the over flow work,

      this site is more for the replacement of a tub drain but should give one a look at how they are made and how the stop should come out,

      if the stop control rod is broke or the cotter pin has broke/wore out, I would think one should be able to fish the stop out of the drain pipe with a wire with a hook bent on the end of it,
