Thanks! I hope your husband can find something steady as well.

Wish I was there, I could have had it fixed in no time! And I would have helped you wash the dishes

I always carry a pipe wrench and a snake in my tool box. There's no excuse for not having the right tools and essential parts at all times.

I'd been having problems with my tub not draining. The built in stopper is not removable, and I know it was clogged with my long hair, so I bought a small cheap plunger and kept using it as I'd take my shower. It worked pretty well, bringing up some hair so I was able to pull some of it out.

You have my sympathy with your kitchen sink. It's so necessary. I hope he isn't going to charge you extra for two visits.

An occasional liquid bleach down the drain should keep it clear from hair build up.

Thanks, RoadFix. I'll try that. Bleach is cheap, and I don't think I should have to buy Liquid Plumb'r because of something that's not my fault. If the built in drain plug was removable, I'd keep it clear myself.
