Most of us have had an unpleasant experience with a clogged bathtub drain sometime in our lives. It seems that after the drain gets clogged for the first time, more and more problems follow. But rest assured, clearing a clogged bath drain is not as hard as it may seem when you leave the problem to your plumbers at 1-800-Any-Tyme.

What Causes Bathtub Clogs?

Before we begin unclogging your fixture, we will first identify the source of blockage. The most common debris blocking your tub is hair, soap grime, and shampoo build up. If the clog is near the top of the drain, you can use a bended coat hanger or a pair of tweezers to release the drain from waste.

Using a Plunger to Clear a Clogged Tub

If your clogged tub is harder to clear than initially anticipated, you may want to consider using a plunger.

Follow these steps for effective results:

  • Make sure there is enough water to cover the rim of the plunger
  • Place plunger over center of drain
  • Push plunger up and down 4-5 times under direct pressure
  • Lift plunger up to reveal the drain clearing
  • Repeat until clog is cleared and water flows smoothly

Using a Plumber’s Snake

For larger clogs farther in your drain line, you will need help from your plumber. We have professional drain snakes and augers to get the job done.

A plumber’s snake is a long, flexible steel cable that is easily manipulated through drains. It can be twisted to rip any debris from the sides of the pipes.

If the tub is backed up from a location in the pipe that the plumber’s snake cannot reach, it is best to feed the snake through the drain closest to the clog. This will ensure the best use of pressure and give you a better chance of clearing the drain.
