Have you ever finished a shower and noticed that the water isn’t draining as quickly as it should? What if you’re about to take a bath, and decide to shower first? After all, the idea of steeping in hot water surrounded by all the grime washing off your body could make you feel physically ill. Let’s find out how to prevent a troubling clog in your bathtub this spring.
Get a Drain Cover
The first thing you can do is to get a drain cover. With one of these gadgets, you can prevent hair from clogging the drain. After all, you’re not the only one who has to bathe in your tub – don’t forget that you give your pets a bath in that bathtub too! The best thing about a drain cover is that their simple, affordable, and effective.
Use a Better Declogger
You could also consider using a different clog removal solution. In other words, use a better declogger. Drain cleaning chemicals are probably your best bet for clearing up a clog when you run into one, but some brands are better than others. Three different kinds of declogger exist – these are foam, gel, and liquid. Find the one that works best for you.
Don’t Block the Drain
Lastly, don’t intentionally block the drain. Rust, worn down pipes, and dropping small objects down the bathtub drain can all form a clog or make a clog even worse. Don’t do this to yourself – and don’t do anything else that makes sense to you but can block the drain. If you have more questions, don’t hesitate to rely on professional expertise.
