Hi, this is Nicholas Iarocci, The Home Source Guy, president and owner of Source Development, Inc., a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York and this is how to replace a popup sink stopper. Now I've purchased a plumb pack and the plumb pack consists of a drain stopper, the popup mechanism linkage and popup rod. You can buy these anywhere and I'm going to show you how to do it and in our case it's a plastic popup. It can come in metal or plastic. We're going to loosen the top of the popup and on the outer perimeter here we're going to install plumbing putty, install, push down, insert the opposite end through the back and then tighten the retention nut on the popup stopper, just snug you don't want to over tighten it but you want to make sure it creates a waterproof seal. I'm going to remove the retention nut from the popup drain, insert the lever through the retention nut and then reinstall the rod through the popup drain and tighten the retention nut. We're going to insert our popup drain. We face that tab towards the faucet whereas that rod is connected to the popup drain. We're going to insert the road through the lever, the back of the faucet, insert the rod into the extender and we're going to pick the second hole from the bottom. First our retention clips get installed then the extension and then the other end of the retention clip to hold it in position. I've tested the operation of our lever to make sure that the operation is smooth and I'm going to tighten. And that was how to replace a popup sink stopper. This is Nicholas Iarocci, The Home Source Guy, president and owner of Source Development, Inc., a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York, helping you build a better life. Reach out to me on Facebook at The Home Source Guy and we'll see you next time.
