What Causes Clogged Showers & How Auckland Drain Unblockers Can Fix Yours
There are few things more unpleasant than a clogged shower. Unlike a clogged sink, you can’t just move to another one if one isn’t working. This means that keeping your shower unclogged in the first place should be a top priority. If you’re sick of calling your Auckland drain unblocker every other day or are concerned about damaging your pipes with all the repeated poking and prodding, here’s what you should know about one of the most common causes of clogged shower drains and how you can keep it from being a problem in the future.
Hair Today – Not Gone Tomorrow
The average person sheds roughly a hundred stands of hair every day. While some will come out when combing your hair, most comes out in the shower. Because most homes have several people sharing a single shower and most people shower once a day (if not more), it’s easy to see how hair can quickly build up and block a drain. You might be wondering why this would happen when all strands are loose. It’s worth remembering that flushed hair mixes with conditioner, soap and shampoo residue. This makes it all stick together into a single mass which can either clog your drain at the entry point or in your main sewer line. If the latter occurs, you’re likely to be subjected to a foul odour in addition to a nasty pool of water that won’t go down.
A Simple Solution
Unlike many other drain blockage issues, hair clogging is simple enough to prevent – and it’s affordable too. Simply purchase a drain guard from your nearest supermarket or hardware store. You can use one created for kitchen sinks – provided the holes are not wider than the width of a toothpick. Wide holes will simply let the hair slip through.
