How to Unclog a Slow Draining Bathtub

Video Transcript

A slow draining tub is often caused by hair and other gunk that clogs the assembly that opens and closes the drain, or clogs the P-trap beneath it. This flexible rod with bristles on the end is called a drain stick, and its ideal for pulling out that goop that slows the flow of water. Another option is to remove drain grate itself so you can reach the debris directly.
