I am having a problem with my shower drain. It slowly drains water after I take a shower, so I assumed that I must have some type of stoppage somewhere. I have used chemical products (Extra Strength Draino, etc.), but the drain is still clogged up. Are there any other alternatives besides taking the trap off? I want the quickest and easiest solution that doesn't require a professional plumber's assistance.
Also, I am having a problem with hard water. I am getting an orange buildup in the shower, on the shower head, and the shower curtain. Does anyone have any recommendations for getting rid or at least cutting down on hard water? Would a new shower head help?
