3 Handy Tips from Plumbers for Unclogging a Shower

dean's professional plumbing, heating, air & drainsClogged shower drain? This is a common home plumbing problem — we’ve all been there! Fortunately, there are a few easy ways to get your shower back up and running smoothly.

3 Tips for Unclogging a Shower Drain:

  1. Use a Plunger. Depending on how severe the blockage is in your drain, a plunger may be able to suction the clog out of your drain. Make sure that you have a good seal when plunging your shower drain. This is good for small clogs, but if your clog is far down in your drain, you may need to try a different plumbing solution.
  2. Use Baking Soda & Vinegar. This is a natural alternative to chemical drain cleaners. Pour a cup of baking soda down the drain and wait a few minutes for it to settle. Then, you can pour a cup of vinegar down the drain following it. This is a safe and effective way to naturally clear many clogged drains!
  3. Use a Plumbers Snake. Plumbers snakes reach down your shower drain and grab onto the clog. Push the snake down your drain until you feel it stop and reach the clog. Turn the handle and latch onto the clog. Then, pull it back up and out of your shower drain.
