Why Does My Shower Clog So Often? | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

A clogged shower drain can leave you standing knee deep in water. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help with that.

When you got back home from your morning walk through Boyd Hill, you took a shower. But instead of being clean from head to toe, you found yourself standing in ankle-deep dirty water because the shower drain was clogged. It seems as if your shower clogs frequently and you can’t figure out why.

“A clogged drain is a slow drain. In the case of a clogged toilet or a clogged kitchen sink, a large obstruction may be to blame—but shower drains mostly slow down when they accumulate hair, lint, or residue from bath products over time,” bungalow.com says. “That goes for bathroom sink clogs, too. Think of all that toothpaste!”

Hair is a major culprit when it comes to shower clogs. Especially if you wash your hair while in the shower. But other things can also cause clogs. Among them, according to bungalow.com, are body or bath oils and dust or debris.

Body oils might make your skin feel amazing, but most of it winds up in the drain as you rinse off, hardening overnight as the pipes cool between uses. Avoid oily bath products, or save them for post-shower,” bungalow.com says. “It can be tempting to empty a dustbin or shake out a rug into the shower and wash it away, but larger bits of dirt and debris can accumulate and make clogs worse later on.”

Bungalow.com suggests that drain maintenance is a good way to keep your shower from getting clogged.

Make drain-cleaning part of your cleaning routine. Keep a bottle of distilled white vinegar or baking soda in the bathroom and pour a little of one or both down the drain after every few showers. Follow with a blast of hot water,” according to bungalow.com.

If you still get a lot of clogs or run into a clog you can’t dislodge by yourself, then it’s time to call in the drain cleaning plumbers at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
