350toocute: If you have a drum trap?The snake won`t work.You would have to take the
over flow plate off.Then you would have to use a air ram.This is a device
that shoots air down the drain line.If you have a regular p trap?Then you
can use the hand top sewer machine...

Querubim Junior: He is a good honest plumber, he just need to go to film school.
PLUMBINGSPOT: If stopper assembly didnt come out then that might be the cause of the tub
Louminati X: I don't have access to overflow. Can I stick the snake in the tub?
gotpipesvictoria: That's how it's done... Thanks!
RescuePits1: Hey bro, thanks for making this video! This worked! I purchased a 50ft
Cobra snake and only had to use ~ 6ft and kept the rest of the snake rolled
up with zip ties. The nasty stuff that I pulled out smelled horrible. I
used a little bit of baking soda and vinegar to clear up the smell. Thanks
FIX IT Home Improvement Channel: Most bath drains are clogged because of hair. Check out The Drain Claw for
an easy to use mini drain snake.
MrDallasPlumber: Very helpful
ma necu bre: O my good so helpful!
Beyonda Nowell: Thank you! I've spent over $100 in the last 6months, purchasing drano. I
bought the drano snake plus kit. It was helpful in unclogging the sink but
not the tub. Although, it recommends to toss the snake, I kept it in-case
the sink clogged again. After seeing this video, I tried the PLASTIC snake
with the tub and it worked. There was so much hair. It took me about 3mins
and the water drained immediately. YT users ,if you think this could work
for you, Walmart sells a similar snake for about $3.
Toi-ventor Hu: Good.
sanderson4766: Very helpful!
Sinjinator: Ha, my tub has no overflow!
fame804: Good video.. was able to unclog my tube within 10 min. thnks
SerenityFL: Great information, just started to feel a little sick with the non stop
moving camera. I need to lie down first, recover, then I can fix the tub.
cameron030362: Question: working on a tub that has the internal stopper with the linkage,
etc...stopper was "cut free" by former maint man and linkage
removed...internal stopper stuck in tub shoe, tub won't drain...tried to
"fish" internal stopper out with "hooked" wire, a snake with a curved hook,
forceps, etc...Any ideas?...tks...Apartment Maintenance Tech
TheTierraval: Is there any risk of damaging the pipes? Usually I would call the landlord,
but the timing is always crap and the snake is really cheap. What is your
Eric Genetiano: @159Plumber That my friend is a bitch to do but good thing I know the
tricks on that, with a gorlit it's going to be hard with a Rigid hand held
drill style with a drop head attachment no problem.
EyeSoLaTioN: Thanks!!! It worked like a charm... I'm a student nurse and custom art
framer by day... plumber by night. LOL. ^_^
PLUMBINGSPOT: @cameron. Your best bet is to get access to waste and overflow that is
located under the tub. Once you have an access to that use channel locks to
remove the nuts to disassemble the pipes. Then you are able to remove the
stopper assembly. Just make sure when you reassemble the pies that the
washers are in good shape.
bluchic7: I just have one thing to say: thank you so much!!!
757ann: This guy is great! Tried a plumber's snake through the tub drain, tried
Drano, then watched this video and inserted the snake through the overflow.
And it worked! Tons of hugs and kisses to you Russian sounding plumber guy!

altlandf: I have a problem with a kitchen sink. I really don't eat much at home as I
eat out. The water will not go down the drain. I will wash my hands and
dishes from time to time. I don't understand how it would get clogged. I
tried to snake it and broke the snake. It was one of those ones in the
reels. You hook a hand drill up to the snake. When they plumb something why
do they have so many turns? So what gets down there that will cause this?
PLUMBINGSPOT: Yes you can use it without power but it will be really hard to make it pass
through p-trap and elbow. Maybe if you keep turning and twisting it
manually then it will go in. Good luck.
smitadodlaty: Thanks for the info, i got my bath tub cleaned
misterfunnybones: "Snakes on a Drain"
SoniaAlese: Okay so hiring a plumber! I got it to finally go in 25 feet... nothing came
out, and the water is still sitting in the tub and not draining out!
kw0s: Instruction is good. The camera performance is so so.
talksolot: I was determined to unclog it without chemicals so in a last attempt I got
a better heavy duty accordion style plunger and it worked! The clog was
released in a few seconds of plunging. For anyone who reads this, I will
say if the little red plungers don't do it just get a better plunger before
you resort to chemicals. Thanks for your help.
PLUMBINGSPOT: Either snake didn't go far enough or clog is in drain. Good luck
SoniaAlese: I couldn't get the cover off all the way because it's attached to some
cords that help turn the bathtub from bath mode- to shower mode. I was able
to get the snake in with the cover half off.... it went down about 7 inches
then stopped... I kept trying to force it down further another 6 inches or
so and it got stuck again.... would not go down, took 20minutes to get it
back out pulling as hard as I could..... any advice? other way to do it?
Jeff Vileta: very helpful -- thank you!
xKillTheMachines: Great! Now let me just go and buy that expensive piece of equipment.....
baire702: This is great! thank you for posting this. Very informative! Thank you!!!!
pubhawk79: Thanks for your tip. I kept getting the snake stuck by going directly down
the drain. I did get the job Manually but using a snake equipped with a
circular case and handle to twist the snake somewhat with ease.
Very Nice Person: I tried that then the snake wouldn't go down any further? It was like
hitting the elbow or something after about 4 feet went in (this is a second
floor Tub) I pulled the snake out, then in 2 days the down stairs bathroom
ceiling had a ton of water in it??? So I guess the water backed up and over
flowed the stack on the second floor cleanout.
PLUMBINGSPOT: I can't think that your problem would be too far in the drain. Ususally BT
drains are 3-8 ft long. And if nothing is jammed in waste and overflow
assembly... hmmm... can you access the drain (W/O assembly?)....if so then
I would take it apart and see if something got jammed. To answer your
question...the X or T in drain can be removed but it is part of W/O
assmbly. but its not needed unless you are replacing the whole
assmbly...also try snaking a bit longer if your snake has more cable.
u2teech: how do i send more than 16 inches of "snake" down from overflow plate? it
stucks at the drain opening area & won't go in further. no matter how i
