, Plumbing Problems: How to Unclog a Shower Drain

Did you notice recently that the water in your shower is not draining smoothly and pools around your feet while taking a shower? If yes, than you have a clogged shower drain. Initially the drainage will be slow but if not fixed in time then the water will not drain at all, which will be a problem. In a situation like this you do not need to worry, with a little effort you can unclog a shower drain.

Now you have got 2 options. You can try some home remedies to unclog the drain yourself and second is to hire a professional plumbing services in Dubai to do it for you. Trying out a DIY can be extremely gross. Still if you want to try some quick fixes then lets move forward.

Below are some DIY Fixes for your clogged shower drain.


The first and easiest of them all is to drain some hot boiling water down the drain. Fill a large kettle or saucepan with tap water and bring it to a boil. Now pour the boiling water down the drain in small quantities. If the clogging is not too hard then the the high temperature of water will help breakup and dissolve the gunk that is blocking the drain. Warning: Only attempt this if you have metal plumbing in place. If you have PVC then this method is not recommended as the temperature may effect the joints.


The next tip is memory recall from your chemistry class in school. We bet you didn’t know then about how powerful home cleaner these everyday items could be. Mix 1/3 cup of baking soda with 1/3 cup of vinegar in a cup and immediately pour the solution down your clogged drain. What happens here is that vinegar and baking soda react with each other creating a powerful cleaning agent in the process. This reaction will break up grime inside the drain. Let it sit for about 1 hour, then run hot water down the drain to clear off the mixture.


If both of the above fail then you are left with one option and that is to get your hands dirty. Then you’ll need to roll up your sleeves and perform the hard and gross labor work. Its easy to do but its extremely disgusting every step of the way. Now you can put your gloves on and unscrew the shower drain cover. Now, get a wire coat hanger, straighten it out retaining a tiny hook on the end. Now you have to feed the wire down the drain to fish out any accumulated hair or any other debris that’s causing the clog. When done, pour some boiling water down the drain to flush out any remains and put the drain cover back.
