We have had a PT36 for many years. The shower drain is getting a bit slow. Would like to know a safe way of cleaning it before it stops up alltogether.
Has anybody any experience with this?

the drain probably suffers from years of whatever and hair and the like. I would drain my grey tank, open the valve & put a bucket under it, then try a good brand of household drain cleaner. Let it set a bit and flush.
If that does not work try a snake down the pipe through to the tank. Also check your roof plumbing vent pipe to make sure you do not have any barn swallows or the like.

Grab the drain "plug" itself and pull it out. The trailing plug assembly will probably be wrapped in hair. Also, put a little hook in a 12 inch piece of coat hangar, push it into the drain and twirl it around. You will catch a bunch more hair. Then push the drain plug assembly back into the hole--should be OK then.

what you can do is take a piece of number 12 electrical wire about a foot long . take the insulation off one end and spread the wires out in a circle.stick this down the drain and twist it around it will grab the hair. keep doing it until it comes up clean
