    I have no basement. Are you kidding me that I'd have to break something to unclog a drain? Do you know this tub and how to get into the drain?

Is this in the basement and if yes then you have a brake in the pipe some where because you say that your snake is stopped by cement.

The tub is clogged with hair


Few plumbing issues such as Dripping faucets. Running toilets. Leaky valves. Clogged bathtubs can be solved by our own trying few things.
1)Firstly lookout for what is causing blockage such as soap or hair inside the pipeline blocking water just pull it out from pipes.
2)Secondly use a plunger(Tool used by plumber to clear clog) pour some water in bathtub to cover the plunger block the overflow of water with rag.Place the plunger over drain pull up & down 5 to 6 times.
3)Lastly if still the clog is not cleared try out with snake a long flexible steel cable wound on a handle In a sink you just feed the snake down the drain, but on a bathtub you need to feed the snake down through the overflow plate opening. Start by feeding about 3 feet of the snake into the opening, turning it as you push it forward. You will feel some resistance as you work the snake through the trap under the drain, and the turning helps to move the head through the trap. The snake should either break up the clog by pushing its way through it, or your turning will hook the end of the snake onto the clog and you can pull it out.

After trying with above if still there is plumbing issue call sewer line repair services for help.

I have a very old three-handled tub faucet. Handles must be cranked very hard to shut off water. Can I just replace handles or is there more behind the wall that must be addressed as well? It is not...


the handles themselves are not the problem but if you remove the handles then there are usually nuts behind them to pull out the valve out of the body. most tub faucets use either orings or rubber washers to seal it. without knowing exact brand and model is hard to tell you exactly what you are dealing with. some brands sell the whole valve to just swap out and some you have to go match up the orings or washers.

Several jet vents have hardly any flow coming out


These tubs often have an adjutment on them that control how hard the jet blows. You may have to adjust them. There isn't anything that can get into the lines that will clog them so I can't think of anything else it could be.
