snakes in a drain

I went to wash my hair this morning and the tub was full of water. Apparently it didn’t drain last night after Jake’s shower. I tried using a plastic hair snake on the clog, but it must have been further down the pipe. So, I braved the weather and went to Ace Hardware at lunch and bought a proper drain snake (a drum auger). That did the trick! But, in doing so, one or more of the pipe connections loosened and a bit of water was dripping from the connections(s) and into the garage. I tightened everything back up and it is leak-free for now. The tool set me back about $25, but that’s certainly cheaper than a plumber’s service call. And, if the past is any indication, I’ll be using it again in the future.
