How can I keep water in my bathtub without the stopper? Place the cloth or sponge inside a plastic sandwich bag. Squeeze as much air out as you can and zip it closed or use a rubber band to secure it. Stuff the bag into the drain. The material should expand to snugly fill the hole, and the plastic bag will prevent water from escaping down the drain.
What can I use instead of stopper?
- Use a Small Plastic Cup.
- Use Plumber’s Putty.
- Find a Jar Lid of the Same Size With the Drain Hole.
- Use a Toilet Plunger.
- Plug the Drain With a Washcloth Stuffed Inside a Plastic Bag.
- Tape the Drain Hole.
- Use a Marine Drain Twist Plug.
How do you fill a bathtub with water? Plug the drain and begin filling the tub with water.
You may have to flip a lever near the faucet, or you may have a rubber stopper or bath plug that blocks the drain. If you’re not sure if your plug is working, fill the bath with just a little water. The water level won’t change if your plug is effective.
