So. Much. Hair.

Today at the House was plumbing drain cleaning day.

Yes, the kids' bathroom sink and shower had a slow drain as did our shower.

There had been much complaining of slow drains and something had to be done. Time for something.

It went kinda like this.

We bought a Drain Rooter Drain Snake and went to work on the drains.

So. Much. Hair.

Let me tell you, that drain snake stick works.

Lots of hair was retrieved from the drains. I mean lots, and lots more. The smell accompanying the retrieval of the hair was rather less than enjoyable to say the least.

We then put a sink mushroom in the kids bathroom drain to try to prevent future hair intrusion. We'll see how long that lasts.

I followed this up with chemical warfare in our shower drain to get the excess that could not be retrieved with the stick.

The drains all work so much better now. Home and plumbing maintenance, while necessary, can be rather gross.

Yeah, I've had to do some plumbing chores that were a bit disgusting. I have a similar "hair snake stick" I bought at Home Depot, and they work pretty well.

Hey Aaron;

Yep it is kinda gross. I will try the hair snake and see how it goes...I should just nuke the kids bathroom from make sure.

I call this "dragging out the drowned kitten." I hate it, and it's disgusting, but it must be done.
