No secret or twist to the title of this post. Our tub is stopped up.
We’ve had this problem before and chemical drain openers, whether liquid or crystals, never seem to do the job.
Plunging is always involved. So I bought a new kind of plunger since our old standbys don’t seem up to the task.
This plunger, Plung-It, uses an air pump to shoot air through the line. I’ve read the reviews on-line, some are good and some are bad.
My advice is to read the directions before using. (Of course, we didn’t!)
The Plunge-It also comes with a more traditional plunger head and sells for $11.98 at Lowes.
While Charlie plunges I hold a plastic container over the hole to seal it. This seems to work much better than trying to stuff a rag or wash cloth in the holes.
And it works.
Do stopped up drains push you off track? What derails you?
