Frequently asked questions

Answers to common questions about

Blocked Shower Drain

How can I unclog my shower drain on my own?
Diagonal Arrow icon

To clear a blocked shower drain, start by removing the drain cover and using a plunger to create a vacuum seal. Pump the plunger up and down vigorously to dislodge the clog. If that doesn't work, try a mixture of baking soda and vinegar poured down the drain, followed by hot water. For stubborn clogs, using a drain snake might be necessary. Remember, you can also connect with professional plumbers through the Home+ app for expert assistance.

What should I do if water is draining slowly in my shower?
Diagonal Arrow icon

If water is draining slowly in your shower, it's likely due to a partial blockage. Begin by removing any visible debris from the drain cover. Next, use a mix of baking soda and vinegar, followed by hot water, to break down the clog. If the issue persists, consider using a drain snake to reach deeper clogs. The Home+ app can also connect you with skilled plumbers who can efficiently resolve the problem.

Why is my shower drain completely blocked and how can I fix it?
Diagonal Arrow icon

A completely blocked shower drain may be caused by a buildup of hair, soap scum, or other materials. You can attempt to remove the blockage by using a plunger, a combination of baking soda and vinegar, or a drain snake. If your efforts don't succeed, don't worry – the Home+ app offers a convenient solution. It connects you with professional plumbers who have the expertise to quickly address the issue and restore proper drainage.
