My Tub Drain Is So Slow | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

A clog might not be the problem if your tub is draining slowly. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help with that!

You spent a great couple of hours yesterday at the St. Pete Winter Market. You even found some presents for friends and relatives. Trouble was, when you got home and took a shower, you found your tub drain was really slow. The water eventually left the tub, but it was awhile after you were finished.

You’re guessing you have a clog in the drain and you’re not looking forward to trying to get rid of it.

You may be right. A clog is the likeliest reason for a slow tub drain. But, if you clear the clog and still find things are slow, then you have another problem. It could be a clog farther down the system or even a blockage in your vent pipe, according to

“Vent pipes extend through the roof and are open to the atmosphere, equalizing pressure in drain lines so that a vacuum effect won’t disrupt drainage,” says. “Because a vent pipe is open at the top, it can be clogged by sticks, leaves, and other debris. Blockages can also occur because of insects or animals.

You can check for yourself, but you’re going to have to crawl up onto your roof to see what’s happening.

If that’s not something you feel comfortable doing, then it’s time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can find and repair blockages farther down in your plumbing system or ones in your vent pipes.
