Slow Drain? An Easy DIY Fix So You Don't Have to Pay a Plumber! by Jan Mostrom

7 years ago

A slow-moving drain usually means a liquid chemical or a call to the plumber. Before you do either of those (personally, I've never found the liquids to help much), try this inexpensive tool from your local hardware store. The tool is a long piece of plastic with jagged edges and costs less than $10. All you need to do is:

  • take off the drain cover
  • push the tool down the drain 
  • withdraw it 

It will bring out the debris stuck in the drain. (In my case it's my girls' hair!) It's not a fun job, but I'd much rather save the money for something fun instead of giving it to my plumber!
