Longwood Plumber: Homeowner Plumbing Tips

We get many drain cleaning calls in Longwood Florida and a lot are clogged bathtubs and showers. How aggravating is it when you come home from a long day at work to take a shower and find yourself standing in still water which is very frustrating. You try different drain cleaners and all types of things to clean your drain and nothing works. Well here are some helpful hints to try to do it yourself. If you have a tub shower combo it all depends on the style of waste and overflow you have to which way you will attempt to clear the drain.

If your stopper is a lift and turn which is where you lift and turn the stopper in the tub and it seals the tub then you need to remove the stopper and in the drain you will usually see a mass of hair. If you don’t then cover the overflow with a damp cloth and suck the drain with a shop-vac. This will usually pull back any hair that is in the p-trap. If you have the kind of stopper that has a lever that raises and lowers the drain, you need to unscrew the overflow plate and pull the assembly out. Sometimes it’s just easier to remove the plunger from the overflow and if that does not work, try the shop-vac as previously stated. If you try all of these steps and still can’t unclog the drain you need to call a Longwood plumber to perform a drain cleaning service because it is more then likely deep in the drain and will need to be snaked out.
