Company spokesman Jacy Elsesser says that hair is the major cause of most clogged tubs and showers. “The amount of hair the average person loses a day can be amazing,” says Elsesser. “Some people can lose over 100 hairs a day. Most are lost during a bath or shower.”
This hair can get caught at the opening of the drain around shower grates and the bracket that holds the stopper in tubs. “Before you grab the chemicals, you should try a drain snake to remove this hair,” says Elsesser. “Drain openers are designed to be heavier than water and drop to the lowest point in the drain to work on a clog. This makes chemicals almost useless for most hair clogs at the opening of the drain.
The company’s tool, The Drain Claw is a two foot long drain snake with a tip that has 100 small interlocking hooks to grab hair and pull it out of the drain. It was designed by a real estate investor to keep his tenants drains open without having to use chemicals. You just push the snake into the opening of the drain and give it a twist to capture hair and debris that is clogging the drain.
For a clogged tub because of hair, a snake may be just what you need to solve your problem.
