They make a contraption that you can purchase in hardware stores. It is a very thin piece of flexible wire with barbs on it. You just use it as any "snake" and push it into the drain. It wll circle around and when you pull it out the barbs will have collected a lot of debris.

We sanitize or water supplies with a bleach solution but I'm not sure how 100% chlorine bleach would act on the system but if you pour about a cup into the drain it will disolve the hair in about 15 or so minutes.

Next time she sleeps shave her head. Think Demi Moore!

I would like to live long enough to attend the GC so I think I will clean out the drain instead.

I do understand.

I have a little plaque in my room here and it says,

"I am master of this house.

Whatever my wife says

Shall be done"

Since our waste water plumbing is PVC, we treat it just like the S&B with chemicals or snakes - whatever it takes to do the job.

You guys have really made me hungry with all these pictures and comments about food.

For the chilli, I'd vote for a 2 as a lot of older people (not pointing fingers) can't handle HOT anymore. Down here it seems like at the chilli cook offs some of chefs don't care about taste just heat.

Are we going to do GUMBO? I volunteered the sausage and roux but no one else has said anything about it. I don't see how we could have a madi graux party and not have gumbo.

After Stephanie's fall I now have half of a Demi Moore. They shaved the left side of her head. From being in bed for so long, she had two knots in the back of her hair. I took it upon myself to try and comb them out and ended up cutting them out. I was accused of messing up her hairdo. I ask her if she had looked in the mirror lately?

One can make anything HOT the trick is to keep it tasty too.

If I were to be there I would insist upon the Gumbo, but being I'm not I won't comment.

LOL...I've used a Long crochet hook combined with chopsticks for that purpose before in my Stick n brick. Thanks for the hanger idea. I now have wire mesh screens in place in my drains in both Moho and Stick n brick. I found them online, but a lot of hardware stores carry them also. I simply remove the top plate on the shower and insert the screen below. Then when I clean the shower, I dump the hair in the trash, and then I rinse it out in my toilet as it doesn't clog easy like the smaller plumbing.

It's a big job, but I'm retired, and just work on it a little bit at a time, scrape, scrape, scrape and then using elbow grease and Goof Off or Goo Gone, and then once the glue is all gone. I wash and wax the area.

Cheers !!!

Hey Bob !!!

Oh I would consider that your offer of sausage and roux will be wanted, cause I can bet you that GUMBO is expected, so I would plan on it. Those of us that cant eat shellfish can forage for something else.

Cheers !!!

Shower drain clog

Herb,

Personally, I wouldn't put any harsh chemicals down the drain. You never know what effect it may have on the grey water tank and valves.

If you can unscrew or pop off the drain cover, you'll be able to remove the hair faster. To prevent drain clogs, these help.

Amazon.com: Set of 4 Tub Mesh Sink Strainer, Stainless: Sports & Outdoors

Walmart sells similar screens. I have one on the kitchen sink and keep it in place with 3 small rare earth magnets. The gate valves on the black and grey water tanks can get hard to close if crud gets in them.

I was thinking that the GUMBO would be sausage and chicken, that way a larger number of people would be able to partake. I would imagine that a fair number or people wouldn't eat it if it had "shellfish" or a derivative in it. I, for one, don't eat shrimp or seafood, but I still have to go to a seafood restaurant once in a while if I want to continue waking up in the morning.
