At RD Plumbing Solutions we get calls daily from residents across Adelaide to fix and repair blocked drains – especially blocked shower drains. We know there is nothing worse than finding your shower flooded with murky, soapy, wastewater. Standing water in the shower is a sure sign that you have a clogged shower drain. It can be caused by anything – from a small blockage to a major and more stubborn obstruction in the main sewer line. If you have a slow draining or completely blocked shower then read on to find out the causes, some simple DIY fixes and if that doesn’t work then we suggest leaving the job to the professionals to investigate the source of the blockage so you can make an informed decision and get it expertly repaired for good.
How Do I Know If I Have A Clogged Shower?
- Is your shower draining slowly?
- Do you often find water standing for minutes before slowly draining away?
- Unpleasant odors emanating from your shower drain?
- Or are you in the middle of a more severe bathroom flooding?
If you have answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions then your shower is clogged, and you need to address that as soon as possible before it escalates further and causes more severe damage.
What Causes A Clogged Shower Drain?
If you tend to wash down your shower any solid waste and things that do not belong in the drains, you will sooner than later encounter drain blockage. Even if you are following good plumbing habits and trying to keep your bathroom drains clean, the continuous usage of the shower essentials and build-up of soap scum, oils, skin flakes and hair can also gradually lead to drain blockages. Did you know that fallen hair is the top reason for drain blockage as they are almost non-degradable and accumulate in pipes over a period leading to obstructions and clogs?
Easy Ways To Get Rid Of Shower Blockage
If you have a blocked shower drain just follow these effective ways to get rid of it:
#1 Natural Cleaning Methods: Environmentally friendly and effective way to clean your drains – baking soda, boiling water and vinegar is an effective way to get rid of small clogs. Simply pour some baking soda down the blocked drain and add double the amount of boiling water. Repeat this step with more baking powder and this time pour 2-3 cups of vinegar to naturally dissolve clogs and get your drain to functioning as it should.
#2 The Plunger: The good old plunger can come handy to get rid of less severe blockages. When the blockage is not too stubborn it can be dealt with drain rods to clean away clogs or solid waste from the pipes.
#3 Regular or Preventive Drain Cleaning: As your local blocked drain plumber we highly recommend regular cleaning of the drains even if there is no sign of blockage. This way you will be able to prevent future blockages.
#4 Let Professionals Take Care of Your Drains: The best thing to do is to call one of our professional Adelaide blocked drain plumbers. We use the latest tools and methods to inspect the insides of your drains and find out the root cause of your smelly, blocked drains and fix it for good
