    DT & Debbie StricklandWhy didn't I think of that? Tips and Tricks:
    December 6, 2019Does anybody know what I can use to clear a very slow bathtub drain? Pretty sure it’s a hair clog, can I use the liquid Plummer hair clog remover? I have a hair catcher in there but it still gets by! All ideas welcome!

      Larry Holbrook December 6, 2019 It's been a while since I've had hair, but I had a gadget like this that has been helpful in the past - LOL

        Vortex Gyspsy December 6, 2019 These looked so good, I've ordered them to have on hand!

        Alumaliving December 6, 2019 Yes!  Theses things are awesome and help you avoid using chemicals that might damage your plumbing or tanks.  We use them at home too!

        Cinn December 6, 2019 I used these in my Sticks n Bricks to avoid using chemicals down the drain, bad for septic. These are thin plastic and very pliable, cannot damage anything.

        Tami and Barry “Cruising in Our Cabin” December 7, 2019 Ours works great on hair

      wrngwy1 December 6, 2019 While the gadget Larry posted does provide a short term fix, lots of showers have a trapless drain installed and could be damaged by using that item, I found its more than hair, its slime from shower soaps, etc I normally go through each drain once every...  more

      Irene123 December 6, 2019 Try white vinegar. It helped ours.

      charles formby December 6, 2019 Lowes, long hair pull, about 12 - 14 inches long, w prongs along side. Just slide down drain , leave if you choose for a period of time, or pull out wipe clean, great item to catch hair

        DT & Debbie Strickland December 7, 2019 Do you mix them ahead or just dump them down the drain?
    • DT & Debbie Strickland
      Jim & Tina December 6, 2019 Baking soda & vinegar! No chemicals down the drain because it goes into the holding tank! Got to be careful of your seals.

        LarandSus December 6, 2019 Been using this for many years including before RV days. Works great.
    • DT & Debbie Strickland
      Christopher Paul December 6, 2019 Pour boiling hot water down the drain over several applications will clear the drain of soap residue as far as hair you have to pull it out or a short application of drain cleaner followed with a boiling water flush. This will clean the pipes. Drain clean...  more

        LarandSus December 6, 2019 It might not hurt the system but it is sitting in the gray tank emitting fumes back at you and if the gray fills while you are in the shower, you are standing in it. Even if it is diluted, not what I want.

      Jerome Jankowski December 6, 2019 Pop out the little screen and go at it with some long tweezers or hemostats.
    • DT & Debbie Strickland
      Christopher Paul December 6, 2019 No fumes other wise you would smell the tank, the fumes go out the stack.
    • DT & Debbie Strickland
      Rubens December 6, 2019 We use a wet/dry vacuum to "pull" it up and then rinse with hot water.. It works great. No chemicals....

      Mark & Anneliese (Hicks At Home) December 6, 2019 Get a Zip-It about $3.00 at Home Depot, stick it in the drain and rinse it off...I keep mine and use it over and over.

      murray j ferguson December 7, 2019 Large bottle of COKE - will also help clean the sensors.

      Debbie and Ceceile December 7, 2019 My granddaughter visited us for over a week, and using this handled her long hair down the shower drain. It's called a Zip-it and it works great. Unlike Larry's, this tool is only about 18 inches long.

      Bails0311 December 7, 2019 After trying Draino and a Zip it I just took a plunger after our clog, ended up being more than hair...calcium build up. It was gross but I "dry" plunged it and then collected what came out to toss in the trash. I have also found brushing my h...  more

      Pamela Hunnicutt December 11, 2019 Not an RV but at home the best thing I ever used was baking soda and vinegar, cheap and non chemical. Put the baking soda in your drain and then add vinegar. Cover it with a plate to force the reaction down through your pipes not up and out. This worked so good

        charles formby December 11, 2019 I do the vinegar, in drains in warm weather, when I leave the RV a few days or storage, keeps flys nats. Out for sure, just saying
    • DT & Debbie Strickland
      Lindalaveen December 16, 2019 I’ve used a straw cleaner. It has bristles so it really grabs the hair
    • DT & Debbie Strickland
      terf January 27, 2020 Just a thought, avoid using chemical drain cleaners, some camp grounds have septic tanks and that creates issues for them
