That's about it. You should be able to get the crap out by removing the
bottom half of the trap underneath the basin, or if you're unlucky you may
have the older type where you have to unscrew the collars at both ends and
take the entire trap off.
Whichever it is, don't forget a bucket, the water that comes out will be
dirty and smelly. chuck it down the bog or the drain outdoors.
Get an hard electric earth wire
Open the one end and spread the wires bit.
Drop down as much you can into the
hole from inside the bath and stir it up quite
a bit and pull it out, the hairs and other bits
of rubbish will pop out it.
Wear a glove and pull out slowly.
Repeat it few times and it should clear it.
I have kept a piece of hard wire in the
bathroom permanently to keep it clean
that way. It works fine.
water in the bathroms started going down the sink a bit slower this last few
months, anyone know any good drain cleaning fluids?
