Charming your tub with a snake
If using a plunger doesn’t work, try using a drain auger, or snake to unclog the tub drain.
1. Remove the tub stopper or strainer, and then push the tip of the snake into the drain opening, continuing to feed the coil through until it meets an obstacle.
Push the cable into the clog in the water and crank it further to dislodge the obstruction. Some snakes have an attachment for an electric drill, giving it more power to force it through the clog. To remove a clog that’s beyond the trap under the tub, rotate the snake while you push it into the pipe.
2. If the snake continues to resist passage through the trap, remove the overflow cover plate (usually located at the end of the tub directly above the drain and below the faucet).
As you remove the screws that hold the cover in place, be careful not to drop the screws down the drain.
If the drain-closing mechanism is attached to the cover, pull up on the cover; the linkage comes out of the overflow hole with the cover.
Push the snake directly down into the hole, and through the trap.
Note that this approach doesn’t allow you to get directly to any blockage that’s stuck in the trap.
If the blockage is past the trap, somewhere down the drainpipe, reaching it may take some time. The cable stops feeding in when it hits the blockage. You must work the snake against the blockage until the cable freely feeds in the drain — then you know that the clog is clear. Flush the drain with water to confirm that the blockage is gone.
Except for really old drains that rely on a rubber stopper to hold back the water, most sinks have a pop-up drain mechanism. Bathtubs have either the same type pop-up stopper or a trip-lever (plunger type) drain closure. When you’re faced with a drain that won’t hold water, you have to adjust them.
