Ever since where we lived remodeled the apartments the new showers have alot of issues with clogged drains. The hair seems to just go down the drain instead of allowing us to catch it at the drain. So the water backs up while showeing and it's like stirring in your own filth. Of course then you have to call the manager and put in a work order so they can clean your drain and it's just a big hassle and kind of embarrassing. With this tool it makes cleaning your drain a breeze and no longer have to call to the office and get it taken care of. We can take care of it ourselves and have our shower nice and hair free. Definitely a great item and it helps make you feel like you have control of your own apartment.
