In my rented home, I am experiencing a bathtub clog like no other. If the tub is 1/2 filled, it should drain in about 5 hours. I've researched other websites, articles, tips as well as some of the other postings here on the "House Repair" site which met with no success.
Below is a list of items utilized at different times:
1) Vinegar & Baking Soda
3) Liquid Plumber
4) Boiled Water
5) Two Plungers - One to seal the overflow & one for plunging the drain.
6) A straightened metal hangar to push any clog through - which by the
way, went into the drain and/or overflow for about 1 foot & no further.
7) A drain auger cable - again stopped at about 1 ft. upon insertion.
The tub drain does not have a strainer or pop-up stopper and the
overflow plate is just a cover with 2 vents. There appears to be no
trip lever installed.
Of course, the next step is "Joe the Plumber"......
ANY help is greatly appreciated & thanks in advance,
