I'm going to try one more thing. Get a decent plunger instead of this $4.99 toy. The most encouragement I've had all day was after plunging vigorously it started going down like gangbusters, but then stopped in a few seconds. I got so excited, but then...huh? It just stopped!? Heck, if it doesn't work it sure is great exercise. Gets that heart rate up. Aerobic plunging. Look at all the calories I can burn! Maybe a coast hanger would work in there? Hell, I'm not giving up yet...LOL! Must be the 1/4 Polish in me ;-).
I also just realized your not supposed to put the snake down the actual tub drain, but down the overflow. No wonder it wouldn't go. I can hear you all laughing from here...
I always remove the trap. It takes a couple seconds at best and makes inserting the snake that much easier than winding down through 3 additional bends. Besides that if the trap arm dumps into a san tee I can steer the cable either down or up if I want. What can possibly be saved by keeping the trap in place, 5 minutes? I also think that hand snakes are a waste of money. They don't have the cable size, versitility or cable length to be of much real use at all. If you get good results with one then bless you, you have figured out something that the rest of us have not. Even after 36 years of cleaning drains.
I don't think he can figure out anything yet!
Evene when he is slapped upside the head with it!
Yup, I got that all important first breath before losing any grey matter...
Unlike you my friend who obviously held your breath quite a while....
You guys are hilarious .
It often requires more courage to dare to do right than to fear to do wrong.
