My bathroom bathtub was very slow to drain, water will stand in the tub for long time. I bought the 20 ft long auger (advertised for bathtubs) and I can't believe I snaked through about 12 feet deep and pulled a lot of disgusting stuff. I was sure the drain will rain smooth now.
To my surprise, it's now completely clogged and water will not drain at all.
I re-snaked and this time I am not able to get pass the first turn in pipes (about 2 feet or so). I believed when pulling it out first, it probably deposited a lot of stuff there.
What could I do now? I keep locking the auger and turning but pushing in but this time it's not going any further. Any suggestions?
I have a typical bathtub, I believe like this
I used plunger and managed to open the drain that way but still wanted to snake it 2nd time but won't get passed the same point. The drain is working now though.
