Toilet drain plug removal

Rate this topic

9 posts in this topic

I’ve had some major work done to my house and it’s taking much longer than expected

 

plumber left the plug pictured below in the drain and I’d like to remove it and reconnect the toilet.

 

can someone please tell me how to remove it?
thanks

see that tab? Grab it with pliers and pull. the center should release around the cutline at the bottom. 

May need to pop it with a screwdriver to get it to start.

Did he get the final inspection?

He can put one of these in if he hasn't got final.

 But wait... Speaking of that. Is the DW connected back to the street ?  :scared:

Yes it is connected. Raised to house and for some reason the pipe into this toilet on the first floor got whacked

On the final inspection some towns want the entire DWV system filled with water till it runs over the roof stack. Haven’t seen that plug, but it looks watertight.
