How do you Fix a Clogged Tub Drain?

A clogged bathtub does not necessarily mean you have to call a plumber. There are a few different things you can try in order to clear the drain yourself. For example, you can use a small plunger to try to break up the clog. You can also remove the drain cover to see if hair or other debris has accumulated there, causing the blockage. Your bathtub drain may have a pre-installed tub stopper, which can trap hair and cause a clog. Simply remove the stopper to look for the clog.

You can also try to snake the drain using a tool purchased at a hardware store. These devices can locate clogs as deep as 25 feet into the piping. Follow the instructions on the device in order to locate and break up the clog. If your efforts to remove a tub clog do not work, contact a professional plumber.
