Tub drain very, very slow. please help!

I would personally tape off the over flow with duct tape. Fill it 1/4 full and throw the old shop vac on the drain, should have enough pull to dislodge the clog. Works every time!! cheers

I will definitely be using that method in the future if it slows down again.
I agree! Did this for my bathtub and it was back to normal in no time!
