Have you ever noticed the water slowly rising in the tub while you’re taking a shower? While there could be a number of different reasons for this to happen, the most likely is that your shower drain is clogged with hair. Both women and men with long hair are guilty of contributing to a clogged shower drain. At first, a clogged shower drain may only cause your tub water to drain slower than usual. However, if it’s left untreated, it will likely get to the point where it no longer drains at all.
The first thing you should try doing is to remove any hair which is directly underneath the drain. I recommend unbending a coat hanger to create a straight and narrow pole with a slight hook on the end to wedge down the drain. Get in your tub, stick the coat hanger down the drain and try to pull up as much clumps of hair you can. You should be able to get a good bit, but there’s a chance the hair is clogged down where you’re unable to reach it.
