    Check to see if there is anything, like hair, around the surface of the drain. If there is nothing there, then the clog is possibly in the trap in the pipe. Fill the tub with water, start to drain the tub and take a toilet plunger, place it over the drain and start plunging to try and loosen whatever is in the drain.

    I had the same problem until I removed the overflow cap and pulled out the linkage, it was covered in nasty hair and soap scum. It did the trick, made me gag, but I was no longer afraid of drowning in the shower;)

    boil many pots of burning hot water 4-5 when each come to a boil, take off heat and pour down drain.... Works like a charm every time for any clogged pipe ... Even toilet bowl after the water has lowered a bit of course and maybe a tiny bit of plunging.... But yes try this for your tub.... Also see if there is hair in the drain use tweezers to grab and pull you may be surprised of the culprit...Good luck...

    Go to hardware store, and get one of those drain snakes to get the hair and muck out, then get some Robotic drain cleaner and mix with some warm water and put down the drain and leave all night, then run hot water in the morning. You can repeat if needed, I have also used followed up with the plunger.
