Bathroom Renovation: Bathroom Plumbing Material Choices
Unless your bathroom renovation is purely cosmetic in nature, bathroom plumbing may very well be part of your project requirements. Depending upon the age of your home, you will be working with one of the following type pipes: plastic PVC (ABS or CPVC), copper, galvanized iron, or cast iron.
If plumbing will be part of your bathroom renovation design, this would be the perfect time to replace old plumbing with new. This would avoid the possible inconvenience and costs incurred by a bathroom plumbing problem at a later time.
Bathroom renovation cost, tools, materials, time involvement, and project complexity will be determined not only by the extent of your bathroom renovation, but also by the type pipe used in plumbing.

Bathtub Plumbing Installation Drain Diagrams
Here are a few bathtub drain schematics and bathtub plumbing diagrams. Fairly simple drain system. If you have to hold your drain lever down for the tub to drain it is more than likely the tension spring on the back of the overflow plate. You can replace just this plate at your hardware store for a few dollars.
Frozen drain levers are usually from the corroded bucket gate at the bottom. If you can pry up the bucket with the attached rod, you may be able to clean it up.
Sometimes drains become really difficult to remove and require a friction drain removal tool. These are handy when the inside cross piece of the drain is broken off or has corroded away.
