There are few things that are more frustrating than a shower drain that isn’t doing its job. Standing in dirty water at the end of a nice, warm shower is enough to foul anyone’s mood, but unfortunately it is a fairly common occurrence. Shower drains have a tendency to clog up easily, especially when you have a lot of people shedding their hair down the drain.
The best thing to do is to prevent hair from making it down in the first place. Having a net covering the drain can prevent a lot of headache later on. If you haven’t been doing this though, you might have a ball of hair and soap clogging up your shower.
These clogs can be quite difficult to dislodge, but a simple DIY solution is to use a wire hanger and try to move the clog with that. Others try using a plunger. No matter which method you use, you should be careful so you won’t damage your pipes while trying to unclog your shower drain or you might be dealing with a much bigger issue.
