Clogged Shower Drains
Did you shower this morning and your ankles had an extra soak in your own soapy shower scum?
Yep it’s kinda nasty and we’ve all been there at one point or another. What you are experiencing is called standing water. The name says it all, the water is still/standing and not heading down the drain as it should. The biggest thing you can do here to help yourself is to not get used to the ankle water. If you wait too long you can wind up with a much bigger and more expensive problem than it ever needed to be.
Why Did I Get A Clog To Begin With?
The question many a homeowner wants an answer to so they can stop it from happening again! We like to call is “Sair Glue”, which is soap and hair combined. The two mixed together creates a sticky, gluey hair substance and it will glob onto your pipes and grow.
This will start narrowing the pathway within your pipe until nothing can get through and then you’re bathing in your own soap scum. Beyond the water backing up, other items you should take note of that indicate a blockage are stinky smells rising from your drain and any leaks that you spot – do not delay! To alleviate said “Sair Glue” and other issues piling in your drain, we have listed a two-step cleaning ritual.
If you do this weekly you have a good shot at keeping your pipes running clear:
