Slow Bathtub Drain: The water doesn't drain
out of my tub quickly anymore. Is there something I can do to help
it work like it used to?
First, if your drain has a stopper with a rod, try pulling it up and
checking for hair or other debris wrapped around it. Remove any gunk
you find. This is the cheapest way to fix a slow drain.
If you do not have a
stoppered drain or this doesn't fix the problem, try pouring a half
cup of baking soda down the drain followed by a half cup of white
vinegar. Allow it to sit for about five minutes, then rinse it away
with water. Repeat if necessary.
If this doesn't work, you
probably need your drained snaked out. In the Burley area,
