Got long hair or pets that you have to bathe in your tub? Sick of dealing with clogged drains? We've compiled a list of the best drain catchers on the market to help you keep drains clear and avoid having to call us for drain repair services. All of these drain catchers can be installed in minutes and are reusable.
SLIPX SOLUTIONS Stop-a-Clog Drain Protectors
This drain protector acts like a suction cup, preventing hair from going down the drain without preventing the flow of water. The suction cup keeps it in place. It's easy to clean and long lasting.
TUBSHROOM Hair Catcher
This drain catcher fits inside the drain and traps hair around the base of the gadget. The trapped hair is not visible until you remove the TubShroom from the drain, so it's a more visually appealing way to prevent hair and other junk from going down the drain. It's also washable and long lasting.
DANCO Mesh Strainer For Drains
Made from durable stainless steel material, this strainer catches soap chunks, bottle caps, and small toys in addition to hair. The hair and items that get caught in it are more visible than the TubShroom, but it will also catch a wider variety of items.
DRAINWIG Shower or Bathtub Drain Hair Catcher
You will be able to install this hair catcher in a few seconds; just insert it into the drain and forget about. Once every month or two, pull it back out of the drain and dispose of whatever hair it has trapped.
Need to Clean Out Your Drains Before You Install the Drain Protectors?
Put our favorite drain clog removing tool, the inexpensive Zip-It, to work! We love these things because they are available in every hardware store and cost a couple of bucks. Just stick the Zip-It into the drain, fish around a little, and pull it back out. You'll be amazed (and probably grossed out, too) at how much hair and gunk you can pull out of your drains with these disposable (or washable, if you choose to reuse them - it's up to you) little gadgets. We recommend using Zip-Its once a month to prevent the need for drain repair services.
