I am mechanically challenged and am trying to remedy a slow draining tub. I have used numerous liquid decloggers and nothing has worked. I thought the bathtub trap was not working correctly and took out the mechanism - it looks intact. I tried using a non-electric snake and can get it down about 15" then it sems I hit something metallic.
The sink and tub are connected to the same draining system. The sink drains fine but the water comes up into the tub. When I close the tub trap the water drains slowly from the sink. Is it possible there is something stopping the bath trap from opening fully?
