0:beer:G/F away so decided on a nice bath (I get nagged if when she's here as I s
End a long time in it lol!).

Turned the metal dial to lock plughole (anti clockwise if I remember).. Seemed a bit stiff then.

Had to resort to using a bucket to empty water into sink as WOULD NOT open despite all my turning!

There is a little overflow hole on circular plug on/off disc that you turn so can get some liquid down there. Have plumber coming for another job on Tuesday, don't want to pay him loads extra to fix this.

Any brainwaves? If I can fix it will rinse/wash plug and drain weekly & g/f not due home till 7 30 pm.

Please save my. Bacon!

Thanks in advance. I do have some caustic soda I can mix if need be or drive tomorrow am for any product/tool you guys think I need.:)
