Re: bath tub wont drain

It is very rare that a drain cleaner will clear a drain that is completely plugged. The line needs to be snaked.


Re: bath tub wont drain

Many times it's hair that is causing this particular problem. Snaking the line will remove the hair and will most likely free the line.
Is this the only drain that doesn't go?

Re: bath tub wont drain

yes every other line in the house works great

Re: bath tub wont drain

time to purchase a decent snake and a tighter meshed drain screen.
