    Hi Bob:

    Sounds like you may not have enough POP-UP in your pop-up assembly.

    When you installed the parts... did you maximize pop up.. If not, I would set the horizontal pivot rod ONE HOLE LOWER in the clevis and see if that helps.

    Sounds like your stopper is not allowing water and air to mix properly as water drains.

    Let me know what you think... or if I misunderstood "sinkstops and rods"..

    Talk soon... Mark
