CPR in the Shower


For the past several weeks, water has been backing up in the tub as we take showers. Probably a clump of my wife's hair again. I could snake it out, but it's just not an emergency. The only time I think of it is when I'm naked in the shower with no tools. As I'm in the shower yesterday, I suddenly have an idea. I cup my hands over the drain, making a tight seal. Then I start doing plunging compressions as if I'm doing CPR on the drain. It worked! After about 10 compressions, I hear the clog pop and all the water goes down. Problem solved.

Start a new business "The Naked Plumber." You will render plumber's crack obsolete. It will now be a plumber's full moon

Probably not a good idea to post a how to video of this procedure, with obscenity laws and all

What works pretty well for me with respect to hair cloging is using my shopvac to suck out all of that grime. The long plastic stick with the barbs also works pretty well too.

How much work can it possibly be to make a sticky post?
