Hey Dave, I have a bathtub drain that is constantly clogged. I have tried chemical un-cloggers and nothing has seemed to work. Are there any simple ways I can fix this without calling a plumber?
Thanks Sara. There are a couple methods you could try before making that phone call, and it sounds like you have already ready covered the first. There are three common methods to attack a slow or clogged bathtub before calling in the professionals.
If none of these methods work, you should call a plumber. It will be worth it in the end knowing you have not damaged anything that could make the problem worse, and you know it will be done right. To keep your drain clear, make sure you use a strainer over the drain that will catch any unwanted hair down the drain. You can also pour some boiling water down the drain once a month, or so, to help dissolve any oils or greases you may have washed off your body in the shower or tub. Hope this helps Sara—and thanks for the question. David
