Bath Tub Clog
How do you know if you have a bathtub clog?
You notice that your bathtub drain is clogged when you hear the bathtub drain making strange gurgling noises. In addition, slow draining as you bathe is another indication that your bathtub has clogged.
Bathtub clog causes
Hair and soap scum buildup on the inside of the bathtub drainpipe is one of the most common causes of bathtub drain clogs.
Certain types of hair products may also cause clogs in a bathtub drain if they contain oils or waxes that can accumulate within the pipe leading to an eventual blockage.
How to prevent a clogged bathtub?
Having a clean bathtub free of clogs is essential for an enjoyable bath. Here are some quick tips to prevent your bathtub from clogging:
Did you know that the pipe that connects from your bathtub drain also connects to a much larger pipe?
Typically, the larger drain pipe is only ten feet away at most. The short span of pipe means that, with the proper power rodding equipment, a plumber should be able to unclog the drain in no time.
In Chicago, there are many homes or residences that are 50-150 years old. Older homes and residences have special bathtub devices called drum traps that were installed long ago. The drum traps were used in place of a P-trap install, creating a trap seal but with an extra function.
These drum traps come with clean-out access and allow for someone to periodically clean out all of the hair. Drum traps are still in use today.
