The arm for a pop-up ball drain stop eroded away into nothing. This is going to be a major PIA because none of these "universal" replacements are going to fit, isn't it?

I've used one that Home Depot sells in the past that worked fine. It's a cheap test, even if it doesn't work.

My pop up tub drain slowly leaks, and I haven't been able to figure out how to adjust it. I mean, I CAN adjust it, but, it doesn't completely seal it up.

If it sits tight, you probably have a bad gasket

Woke up to no heat. My BIL was unavailable, so I bit the bullet and called for service. $250 **** dollars later, he diagnosed the issue, but didn't have a part on the truck. Rather than spend another $265 on the install and replacement, I bought the $45 switch on eBay and will be installing it next week. The service fee plus OT is still pissing me off hours later, and now I wish I had just waited until my BIL was available.
