After four decades of being a homeowner you pretty much learn how to fix anything. And there is a certain degree of satisfaction in DIY projects. I often resort to strutting around the house proclaiming “I am the Man” after a particularly impressive accomplishment.
Like today. Our shower drain was clogged. My experience was, fortunately, not like this one:
Previously, I had used a clumsy metal snake contraption to coax all the hairs out of the drain, and was eventually successful. Later, I was at Home Depot and figured there had to be a better tool for such a task. And there was! A very simple and inexpensive plasic device.
There were two more clumps, and now water rushes down the drain. Ta da!
