Have you ever taken a shower and realized you might as well be taking a bath with all the water pooling at your ankles? More often than not, that water sticks around because a clog in your drain is preventing it from flowing out. You’ll need to unclog your bathtub in order to fix this problem.
How to Unclog Your Bathtub
Use a Drain Claw
Begin by removing the strainer from your drain and getting rid of any excess hair or gook that might be below it. Insert the drain claw past the trap, and then remove it from the drain. Pull off any debris the claw caught, then test the drain by running the water and seeing if it no longer pools.
Make Your Own Drain Cleaner
Pour ¼ cup of baking soda and one cup of white vinegar down the drain. After 20 minutes, pour warm water down the drain, and test the tub to see if it drains properly.
Clean the Strainers
Sometimes, water pools in your tub simply because the strainer has a build-up of hair and other gunk underneath it. Unscrew it from the drain, and wipe away any debris from the strainer and stopper beneath it.
