In response to Re: Bathtub drainage slow
: The water does not drain fast from the bathtub, even while taking a shower, used liquid plumer, but did not help. What is the best course of action, is there any site that shows the piping details of bathtub and drainage out of it??

: Thanks

Take the over flow plate off the top of the tub and pull out the stopper. Is it all there? If you have a drum trap do not use a cable to clean this out. If you have a p-trap run a cable down the over flo pipe. If you can see the plumbing from the basement then run the cable as far as you need it to get to the branch of the main drain line. If not 15ft should get it done. You may need to call a licenced master plumber to help. Dale's Plumbing Service LMP
