If you have ever stood in a shower with the water pooling around your ankles, you know how frustrating it can be to deal with a blocked shower drain. Not only does it create an uncomfortable shower experience, but it can also lead to potential water damage and even mould growth if not addressed promptly.
We offer a specialised service to help with blocked shower drains. As a licensed and experienced plumbing company, we are trained to solve any blockage issue quickly and efficiently, leaving you with a shower that drains correctly.
Hair: Hair strands are one of the primary culprits for shower drain blockages as they can accumulate and form clogs over time.
Soap Scum: The residue left behind by soap, combined with minerals in the water, can build up and create a blockage in the drain.
Skin Cells and Body Oils: Dead skin cells and body oils can accumulate over time, especially if not properly rinsed off, contributing to drain blockages.
Foreign Objects: Accidentally dropping small objects like jewelry, bottle caps, or toys into the shower drain can cause blockages.
Mineral Deposits: Minerals present in hard water can accumulate and create deposits in the drain, reducing its capacity and causing clogs.
Dirt and Debris: Small particles of dirt, sand, and other debris can find their way into the drain, leading to blockages.
Incorrect Pipe Slope: Improper installation or a poorly sloped drain pipe can impede the flow of water and result in blockages.
Tree Roots: In some cases, tree roots may invade underground drainage systems, including shower drains, causing blockages.
Plumbing Issues: Problems with the main sewer line or plumbing system, such as pipe corrosion or collapsed pipes, can lead to shower drain blockages.
Inadequate Drain Cover: If the drain cover or strainer is damaged or not properly fitted, it can allow debris to enter the drain and cause blockages.
It’s important to address a blocked shower drain promptly to prevent further damage or potential plumbing issues.

The best way to prevent a blocked shower drain is to remove hair from the plughole after every shower and regularly clean the shower drain with natural or commercial drain cleaners. You can also use a drain protector or strainer to catch hair and debris before they enter the pipes.
Some signs of a blocked shower drain are slow draining water, standing water in the shower, foul odours, gurgling noises and water backing up in other drains.
Depending on the cause and severity of the blockage, you may be able to unblock your shower drain by using a plunger, a drain snake, a wire coat hanger or a combination of boiling water, baking soda, salt and vinegar. These methods can help to dislodge and remove the clog from the pipes.
You should call a plumber to unblock your shower drain if none of the DIY methods work, if the blockage is too deep or too hard to reach, if you suspect a broken pipe or a bad pipe installation, or if you have recurring or multiple blockages in your plumbing system.
