Bath drains are exposed to major obstruction problems. These are hair clogs, soap scum and mineral buildup. You can fix these problems by yourself.
Tools and Materials Needed:
- Rubber gloves
- Serpent Drain
- Old paper towels or rags
Always protect yourself. The first thing you have to do is buy some latex gloves to protect you from detergents. In addition, drainage snakes are very difficult to handle when they get wet and can cut the skin.
Remove all hair traps, if you have one installed and then fill the tub with water to see if the problem persists.
Insertion of the snake escape
Keep the mouth of the snake drain carefully through the end with the handle. Insert the other end into the drain. Be careful that you can very easily scratch the surface of the tub. Now turn the crank a few times to get the snake in place.
Operation of the snake escape
Now, after fixing it to the drain, it is time to extend it so that it can reach the obstruction and remove it. Turn the crank easily so you do not force the snake. If you feel that you are stuck, then it can mean two things: either it does not come out – then you will have to pull back slightly, otherwise if you force yourself to continue it can damage the pipes, or you have gotten to the clog .
Get rid of the obstruction
Remove the snake leak and see if there is dirt on the top of it. If so, remove it with a paper towel. Then pour some water into the drain. Repeat the steps until you eliminate it completely.
