Carefully, with a 1961 snake.
If you snake it, go in thru the trip-lever opening.
What sometimes works better is a shop vac.
Block off the trip-lever opening with wet rags
Tightly seal vac hose to drain and turn on.
Could you describe a drum trap to me please??
I've tried to use a sink snake but it would only go so far
with no results.
We don't have a trip lever but we do have an overflow in the
Drum traps are basic round barrel with inlet and outlet.
snakes just wind up inside:(
best fixed by replacing with regular trap
they could be opened but after all these years they rust shut and
screws break off.
not worth messing with......
