im guessing by only being charged 80$, this wasnt a licensed plumber you hired..sounds like a jack of all trades, master of none kinda guy...no wonder its still clogged

You may have a great wad of hair and soap stuck in the trap. Can you see anything in there with a flashlight? Have you tried liquid plumber?

yes you are correct...all that you mentioned should have been doneNeilMcduck wrote: ↑Ok...here's one...
Older house; brand new acrylic bathtub. The tub is on top of a new subfloor, but there's a tiny bit of flex when you stand in the tub near the drain because of the original floor underneath.
When we installed the drain, we used the rubber washer from the kit to seal where the drain meets the outside of the tub. Only recently did I find out that we should have used plumber's putty because of the rough acrylic surface...
Anyway, the drain leaked if the tub was full (stopper in) and someone stood in it (no leak when showering though).
I unscrewed the drain from above and put silicone around the bottom seal as best I could. It seems to have stopped the leaking for now, but how long will this solution last?
I know the 'proper' fix is to rip out the drain from underneath, strengthen the floor, then reassemble the drain, but will my MacGyver solution work?
