I laugh to myself and mentioned, “I can identify.” I’ve told my wife more than once that a journey by means of our crawlspace on knee and elbow puts one in thoughts of a Stephen King horrorscape. The DJ’s quip strikes a chord with me because, not even per week prior, I had performed battle with a stubborn and really stable tub drain clog and emerged victoriously. It took the better part of an hour and I should have fed 7 or 8-ft of the auger into the drain before it reached the clog and broke it up. Trust me, for those who’ve suffered a similar ordeal, or should you’ve lately winced while scratching out a check to the plumber, it’s an experience you gained’t be desperate to repeat anytime soon.

Enter a easy however ingenious product – your ounce of prevention – The Tubshroom. This little piece of molded silicone expertise earns its name because it is shaped – you guessed it – like a mushroom. It’s guaranteed to “catch each single hair, each single time you take a shower.” Insert it into any customary 1-half of” diameter drain and it doesn’t clear drain clogs, however prevents them from occurring in the first place.

Getting down to where the rubber meets the road or, in this case, the drain hair catcher, does Tubshroom work? I used to be skeptical and reluctant, but laying down the $13 was a no brainer if it meant never having to wield a drain auger again, or if it spared me the sight of a plumbing van in my driveway.

Tubshroom works, not just surprisingly well, but shockingly well. While you see the hair and different crud that this product retains out of your pipes, the supply of your previously sluggish or clogged drain will now not be a mystery. To not single out our beloved wives, daughters or sisters (or anybody with longer hair for that matter), however should you share a home with anyone with a considerable head of hair, Tubshroom is essential. Remove Tubshroom after every couple of showers and wipe it clear with a chunk of tissue, and put the residue in the trash where it belongs instead of in your pipes.

Tubshroom works with each human and pet hair and is available in five colors. A bargain by any stretch if it prevents NPBE’s and service calls. It sells for $12.ninety nine at Bed Bath & Past, Amazon and different retailers.
