Forum Title: Basin pop up waste
At my brothers house, the pop up waste to his basin is leaking. The leak is coming from where the pop up mechanism enters the waste (as pictured). As this is leaking considerably the only thing I can think of is a washer is missing. Any other possibilities?

unscrew the nut and pull out the rod. Probably a plastic pivot ball on the rod sometime the crack or get messed up. HD might have a generic rod replacement kit But not sure. 30 sec to peek at HD and they had this Universal-Ball-Rod-for-Pop-Up-Drains

I can not unscrew the nut containing the pivot ball. A colleague of mine has stated to buy a new pop up waste.
