      MY BATHTUB/SHOWER IS DRAINING VERY SLOW. MY PLUMBING IS THE PVC TYPE, AND I AM WONDERING IF I USE A CHEMICAL DRAIN OPENER (I.E. LIQUID PLUMMER)WILL THAT WRECK THE PVC PIPES?
      THANK YOU,

      The bathtub drain is probably clogged with hair.

      Before using any drain cleaners, remove the drain stopper and remove the hair clogging the drain (if that is the problem), then re-install the drain stopper and test drain flow.

      THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONCE BUT I HAVE ALREADY CHECKED FOR HAIR AND OBSTICLES, SO NOW I FIGURE MY NEXT OPTION TO BE EITHER A CHEMICAL DRAIN OPENER, OR A DRAIN SNAKE.
      OR ARE THERE OTHER OPTIONS?

      THANK YOU,
