I was having a problem with water draining very slowly in the bath tub. The culprit causing my drainage problems was a wad of hair. Since I wash my hair in the shower now, where else would shed hair collect? Apparently it does not just wash away like I thought.
The solution to my problem was to invest in a hair trapper. I found this one at Walgreens for about $3.50 but I’m sure they could be found at most stores that sell home improvement items. The hair trapper covers the bathtub or shower drain and prevent shed hairs from entering the pipes.
I would rather pay $3.50 to prevent a problem than to pay a plumber $350 to fix it.
