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.

Tub drains slow

does your bathtub drain slow, and toilet not flush? dont call a plumber just yet, Every fixture in your home should have a air vent associated with it. the vents allow gases to escape and are necessary in allowing the waist water to flowout and down the pipes. most vents lead up through the roof, these are usualy 2" in diameter and raise up about 20" from the roof. there are other ventsin and around the home like the drain pipe for your washer or the overflow drains in sinks and tubs. If you have a tub that drains slow its usually hair buildup in the trap and is simple to clear. If you have a problem like the one i had and you've tried everything and it still wont drain the vent may be clogged. In my case the toilet wouldnt flush allong with the tub draining very slow, I threw every thing i could at the problem including removing the toilet and running a power snake. You can imagine how i felt when i put the toiket back in place and when i flushed it nothing happened:( after some thought i went to the tub and removed the chrome cap 0ver the overflow and ran a wire with the end bent like a hook as i pulled the wire out the toilet flushed, on the end of the wire was a clump of hair . problem solved!

Water will not drain with lever in either up or down position

Assuming you have a lever operated tub stopper, with the lever mounted in the overflow plate, a common malady is the decay of the internal end of the lever, leaving the stopper at the bottom of its pathway preventing drainage.

remove the overflow plate and carefully slide the stopper assembly out of the overflow... you will know almost immediately if the assembly has come apart. if its intact, run a small diameter sewer snake down the open overflow to clear the tub's drain trap. if it has indeed come apart, remove the connecting rod and stopper from the overflow, you may have to fish for it some. Happy hunting....

reassembly is simply reversing the removal process once you have replaced any broken parts or cleared the trap.

Bath tub wont drain. we have poured liquid plumber gel. This happens every couple of years. besides snaking, seems like the plumber ends up on top of the house something about the pipe? Am i crazy or...

It does. The plumber may not be able to get through the trap @ the tub so he is snaking from the vent on the roof. If you are not on a septic system? After the plumber is done in the future and 2 cups of bleach to the a full tub of water once a month and that should keep your drain cleared longer

I take it that you removed the drain trip linkage and stopper through the vent hole .
You must now run a small hand or small power snake the less than eight feet to open the drain.
You can also plug up the vent,tightly and  try a flat plunger on the tub drain .
