How to Replace a Pop-Up Sink Stopper:
Tools needed for the DIY project:
To remove the stopper, some stoppers may simply lift out by pulling on it, but others will need further instruction. In this case, loosen the nut holding the pivot rod in place to remove it from the drain pipe. Unscrew the clevis screw to lift the stopper out of the drain.
Pop-Up stoppers may need to be replaced due to a cracked or dirty seal, drain leak, or broken parts. To Install a new Pop-Up Stopper, remove the original drain flange. Apply a small amount of sealant to the new flange. Insert the brand new Danco Pop-Up Stopper through the bottom of the sink. Attach the new flange back onto the sink.
Hold the pop-up assembly body under the sink, being sure to face the rod opening towards the back of the sink. Tighten the retaining nut and clevis screw to hold the horizontal pivot rod in place. Be sure to test the stopper to be sure that all moving parts are attached and that it is creating a tight seal in the sink. Adjust as needed to ensure optimal functionality.
Pull up on the existing pop-up stopper in the sink. Underneath the sink, unscrew the nut connected to the ball rod on the drain body. Slide ball-rod out until the stopper lifts out of the sink. From there, place the new Pop-Up Stopper into the drain body and reconnect the drain assembly.
