What Are The Best Ways To Unclog A Shower Drain?

There are many different things, such as soap scum, hair, etc. that pass into your shower drains. This also makes them more prone to blockages. We at Dr Drain Melbourne are one of the most reputable companies in this space and handle all types of blocked drain problems. Here are some tips on the best ways to unclog shower drains:

How to Unclog Shower Drains

Like any other plumbing issue, it is best to prevent the blockage in the first place. You can pour some baking soda into the drain and follow that up with hot water once or twice a month. This helps to clear any grease or soap build-up within the drainpipe.

If your shower drain is already blocked, you can try to unclog it by using a plunger. If you do this correctly and the blockage isn’t very severe, you would be able to clear it using this simple tool. Cup plungers are very useful and will remove the blockage quickly. Before using a plunger, place a wet towel above the drain opening. It helps to prevent the air from escaping and creates better suction.

If you have a stubborn drain block, take a wire coat hanger. Straighten it out and keep the hook at the end. Remove the cover from the drain; feed the wire down into the pipe and hook any debris or hair that you can.

If none of these methods works in unclogging your shower drain, call in a licensed and emergency local plumber. When you contact a credible and well established company, they would be able to send out well-trained professionals who will also use the latest tools in their work. They work systematically and first check the shower drain using a CCTV drain camera.

Once they have determined what is causing the blockage and where exactly it is, they will then use tools such as electric eels, root cutters, or water pressure Jets. These are some of the best ways to remove stubborn blockages. Once they have finished with this work, they will reinsert the CCTV train camera to ensure that the entire block has been removed.
