You can clean a tub drain in less than one hour.
Flip the lever to the full open position, and carefully pull the stopper and rocker arm assembly from the drain opening. Use a small wire brush to clean off the debris you find.
Remove the screws from the coverplate, and pull it, the trip lever, and linkage from the overflow drain. Remove hair and debris, and remove any corrosion with a small wire brush and vinegar. Lubricate the linkage with heatproof grease.
Adjust the drain flow, and fix any leaks by adjusting the linkage. To do this, loosen the locknut on the threaded lift rod, and screw the lift rod up about 1/8 inch. Tighten the locknut, and reinstall everything in reverse order.
