Have you noticed your sink drains or tub drain pipes are backed up with liquid? If this is the case, you will notice a slimy liquid coming out of the drain, along with an uneven flush. This may be caused by a clogged drain. To clean it, simply disconnect the drain from its source and use a drain cleaner or plunger. Once the liquid has been removed, flush the drain with running water to see if the problem persists.

Does your shower drain or tub drain occasionally clog up and leave dirty water hanging around that smells awful? You may have a clogged shower drain, which is typically caused by hair, soap, or other debris that may not be able to pass through the drain trap. A clogged drain cleaner can solve this issue by forcing water through the drain. However, if the clog is persistent, you may need a drain cleaner with a suction head that has a rotating head, which would rotate as it pushes the water through the drain.
