How To Unclog A Bathtub Drain The Easy Way

i just wrapped up unclogging a bathtub at my tenants house and it went way smoother than i anticipated one of the things i appreciate most about being handy is saving money on simple plumbing problems, the best way to unclog a bathtub drain depends on where the clog is and what tools you have most bathtub clogs are near the top of the drain in the drain basket cross hairs or the shoe directly below the drain basket hair and soap scum routinely collect there and a little manual labor is all that will be needed to clear out this type of clog, 1 unscrew the overflow plate from the end of the tub use pliers if necessary to pull the plate linkage rods and stopper out from behind the tub 2 feed a drain snake down the overflow hole tighten the thumbscrew to lock the snake in place then crank the handle and push the snake down the drain, boil a pot of water and carefully pour the water down the clogged bathtub drain step 4 after pouring the boiling water down the bathtub drain pour ¼ cup of baking soda and 1 cup of white vinegar into the drain
