Not only is knowing how to unclog a shower drain a beneficial skill, but it can also help in preventing an issue before it begins. To ensure you have a steady flow of water, try these tips!

  1. People with longer hair are more likely to clog their shower drain. To prevent any plumbing issues, install a drain screen in your shower. Make sure you empty anything caught in the screen after each of your showers.
  2. Not only does hair clog up your shower drain, but pieces of soap also can. Install a shower caddy for your soap to prevent pieces from going down the drain.
  3. When the weather permits, give your dog a bath outside! A simple solution for a dog bath is using a kiddie pool. If it’s cold out, you can put a washcloth over the drain to prevent fur from clogging the drain. While it may take longer for the water to drain, it will trap the fur from making its way to the drain.
