In response to Re: What Limits Drain Speed?
The limiting factor will be the item with the smallest area. Usually the drain opening at the bottom of the tub. If it is draining at the maximum, you will usually hear the water running into the overflow pipe. If you do not hear it, then that could mean that the drain is getting plugged and requires snaking.

: Assuming all piping is clear and in good shape, what is generally the physical limiting factor to how fast a bathtub drain runs? Is it the size of the piping in the drain shoe? ...or the size of the trap?? And along those lines, is there anyway to increase the drain speed.
