Cool

If it was draining o.k. before, then it should be draining o.k. now.
Did you adjust the new stopper pull assembly (pull up to close, push down to raise drain stopper) to allow the drain plug to be high enough to allow good water flow into the drain when the pull is pushed down?

The stopper pull may need to be adjusted on the piece that raises and lowers the drain.
If that isn't it, you may need to take the trap off, and snake the drain line itself.
Good Luck! Mike

Thanks for the quick response...

The water was not going down even with out the stopper in it...

My Finacee just told me she put drain cleaner down the sink today...

So I took out the plunger and whola works just fine now I guess all the crap built up right after the trap...
