Why is cleaning blocked shower drain imperative?

Shower drains connect your washroom shower to the sewage system. Therefore, it has a direct hand in determining what gets into the main plumbing system. In general, hair enters the shower drain, congesting the system. Besides, you might not be conscious of the larger objects that happen to get into your shower drain. These elements may deceive the strainer present at the opening of the shower drain and mess up with the main plumbing system.

At the bottom of the shower drain, there’s a U-shaped pipe, designed to prevent sewer gases to flow back to the shower room. A blocked shower drain can eventually mess up your shower room with unpleasant gases.


Tree Roots

Gardening can be wonderful and fun but it is important to know where your sewer and stormwater drains are laid before planting certain flora. Cracks and spaces in your pipes are especially vulnerable to strong, deep roots and can cause significant damage to your pipe’s health and your wallet! Out of all the blocked drain issues throughout our 20+ years of plumbing experience, tree roots is the number one most common problem.

Flushing Oils

The most common cause of kitchen sink blockages is oil and waste scraps clogging the drains. Simply DO NOT pour oils down the kitchen sink, but instead pour it into containers to prevent the fats blocking your drain.

Hygiene Objects

Regardless of wipes and female hygiene products being a kind of tissue, you SHOULD NOT flush them down the drain. We advise our customers to dispose of these into a rubbish bin and to remember that all wipes can cause blockages and issues with your drain.

Another common blockage problem is quantities of hair blocking drains. This can easily be prevented by using a hair catcher over your drain or simply remove the hairs from the drain after your shower
