HELP!! Hey guys, I have a drain in my basement that services a shower that is CLOGGED. We have tried the old stand by of IND Strength Liquid Plumr(usually works good), a snake, vinegar, pressure washer, etc. Does anyone have an idea on how to get this clog out. It is not completely clogged, just very slow. I really don't want to have to take the stall and everything out and rip this drain up, but it is 40+ years old. Any ideas would be more than welcome. Thanks.

Home Depot sells this stuff that contains Sulfuric Acid. It works really well just make sure you have a garbage can lid or something to throw over it immediately after you pour it down the drain as once it hits water it explodes. Oh, wear eye goggles too and a face mask too!

Oh yeah, make sure to open all the windows... and doors... and anything else to get ventilation going as it's going to STINK!

Yeah, I talked to a pro, and got some sulfuric acid containing stuff to try. I will let you guys know how it works out. If this doesn't work, definitely time to  call a plumber over for dinner!! :'(

Oh the sulfuric acid will work unless you have some major root issues. Shesh you didn't need to ask a pro, just a HIPPIE :D
