I should have known better. Last Wednesday I went to the home improvement big-box store. Both bathtub drain inserts were corroded beyond cleaning.
Why couldn’t I change them out myself? What could go wrong?
What could go wrong? I couldn’t believe you said that. With your past history.
The center part the wrench was supposed to turn counter-clockwise for extraction broke off immediately. If it was corroded outside it was probably corroded inside.
I’d been warned. The plumber will be out next Wednesday afternoon. Another lesson learned. At least I only broke one of the two drains.
