I’m a moron. I’m stipulating that from the beginning.
I was letting a mop that was frozen in a bucket (don’t ask) thaw in my bathtub. Unfortunately, apparently there was quite a bit of dirt and crap along with the ice, because my bath tub is now clogged. I took the drain cover off, and it doesn’t appear that there is anything blocking the drain that I can just pull out. Sooo…
Will draino help? If it’s a bunch of organic matter, maybe the draino will eat through it. On the other hand, maybe it won’t, then I’ll have a bathtub that is clogged AND full of semi-corrosive material.
Should I get my Dad with his plumber’s snake over to my apartment? He’ll make fun of me. And then I’ll have to hit him. Niether one of us like this arrangement, but that is how it will work out. Actually, it will envolve him driving 2 hours round trip, so if he does it, I’ll owe him BIG time.
I’m gonna go get dressed (without a shower, my poor coworkers…). If anyone has any advice (other than hire a plumber. I’m poor. Of course, I rent, so maybe I will. But then I’d have to explain the situation to my landlords, whose English isn’t that hot. Sheesh.) please pass it along. I’m gonna pick up some draino on the way to work tonight, I’ll check this thread before using it, and unless someone tells me not to, I’ll pour it in.
Just in case, anyone remember how to raise the PH of a base?
