Best product for semi-clogged drain?

Bath tub is slow to drain water as of late. Likely due to hair and dirt buildup that I cannot fish out. Would something like Drano fix this?

Thx

Thanks for the info. I went to both Canadian Tire and Home Depot and they didn't have anything like that in stock.

Both HD and CT carry them... HD isn't the exact model.. it's made by Moen... Here's the HD link - http://www.homedepot.ca/webapp/wcs/stor ... ign=978475
Instead of the little spikes sticking out they have holes drilled along the side..

CT carries the actual Zip-It model the product code is 63-8513-2 retails for $4.99

Enjoy!

I just bought one today at Canadian Tire in Port Coquitlam. The cost was $4.99 and the Canadian Tire SKU# is 063-8513-2.....it seems to have cleared one of my drains that was partially clogged with hair :eek:

Mcplar, it looks like yo beat me getting the SKU# while I went to look for my receipt!

Home Hardware has it's own brand of drain de-clogger but keep the window open, it stinks.

Works well though.

Must get one of those Zip Its! lol

On a somewhat related note, one of our toilets flushes a little slower. I assume that it's semi-clogged. It's actually clogged a few times in the past, and I got it to unclog with a plunger, but it still flushes slow. What would you guys recommend to help clear it?

What was the name of the product and where in the store did you find it?

Ok, so after a lot of running around, I found the "Zip-it Drain Cleaner" (SKU# 063-8513-2) at Canadian tire. I asked the guy to do a check on inventory at other stores in the lower mainland. Here's what other stores had as of last night:

Cambie& 7th: 20
Richmond: 23
Kingsway & Nanaimo: 0
Grandview Hwy: 0
Byrne Road: 43
Coquitlam: 2
Port Coquitlam: 9
North Van: 10

I tried it last night on my sink and it worked like a charm. They're one-time-use so i bought 2 just in case it didn't work on the first try.
