My Tub Won't Drain

You may have been unnecessarily struggling with a bath tub drain blockage. Many times, these stubborn disruptions are easier than you think, to get relief for. The image below is what a typical tub drain assembly looks like:

There exist 5 common types of drain assembly. The photo above from Handyman.com illustrates a type of drain assembly, where the stop is threaded into the mouth of the drain. Removing the stop will reveal a cross hair which contains a tapped/ threaded center. There is where you will usually find the culprit behind the tub not draining. The cross hairs collect hair and other debris. For future access to this section of the drain assembly, become familiar with which type you have. Practice removing the stop on a regular basis. This will allow for the plug to remain easy to remove, as well as give you an opportunity to remove accumulation before the drain becomes sluggish and difficult to clear.
