Have you ever showered and noticed that the water was not draining fast enough? This is known as pooling and is caused by a drain clog. Drain clogs can result in many other inconveniences and unsanitary circumstances. In this post, we will discuss what causes shower drain clogs, how to prevent them and what to do when your shower or durian begins to pool.
Pooling in your shower or tub is likely the result of the drain being clogged. If your drain is not allowing the proper amount of flow, water will pool in your shower which is unsanitary and can cause water damages. Bacteria and dirt from the residue of the pooled water can build up and form black rims around the surfaces of your shower or tub.
One of the main causes of a shower drain clog is hair. Over time, wet hair can build up in your shower drain, preventing water from flowing. Another major cause of a shower drain clog is soap. Products like soap boars and shampoos are often huge factors in shower drain clogs. Chunks from soap bars can fall off and catch onto debris such as wet hair. Some shampoos can leave behind scum and films which causes pipe erosion and clogging. Devices such as a plumber’s snake, catcher or even a metal hanger can unclog shower drains. Solutions such as baking soda and vinegar can even be used to clear backed up drains. If you noticed pooling due to clogging, call a professional plumber such as Putman & Sons.
