Slow Tub Drain

Slow Tub Drain

LOCATION:
Boca Raton FL, 33431 (Slow tub Drain)

CAUSE OF PROBLEM:
Hair and soap scum

RESOLUTION:
Have you ever taken a shower and the water starts rising to your ankles? We all dislike the discomfort of a slow tub drain. There is nothing worse them trying to feel nice and clean only to be splashing around in your own dirty water. There are many causes to a slow tub drain. One of the most obvious reasons would be hair that makes its way down the drain only to slow things up. Bust lets say you have no hair what might cause a slow tub drain? The normal oils on your body mixed with the fats in the soaps will cause a scum build up. It almost is like a thick “jelly” type material that will build up over time and cause the drain to come to a complete stop. So your net question maybe how to prevent this from happening.

The best way to prevent hair from causing a slow tub drain would be to use a screen. This way when your showering is complete you can remove and clean the screen. As far as regular build up, the safest way is to mix two parts white vinegar to one part baking soda. Mix the products and let the mixture sit for a few hours. Then run hot water to flush it out of the pipes. If the block is already past the point of no return then you may want us to come take a look.

There is a reason we are South Florida’s Most Trusted Plumbers.
