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...

boohoo151: I don't have that in my bathtub

boohoo151: Can someone help please I don't got that in my bath tub

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 not draining

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 again!

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.

PLUMBINGSPOT: ync

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 suggestion?

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!

sanderson4766: Very helpful!

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 wriggle it.
