tub drain clogged... draino does not work!


I can't fit the snake down the drain so I tried draino, vinegar &, baking soda, no luck :-(
Any suggestions?

draino is a very caustic chemical and some of it may be mixed in with your standing water.

make sure to wear goggles at all times to protect your eyes.

Post a picture of your drain and the over flow cover---someone will help you figure out how to remove the drain cove and pop up assembly or plunger assembly so you and get that cleaned out---
