Detection and prevention
1. The signs of a blocked shower
You may find that you’re splashing around in your shower tray because the water is draining away more slowly than normal. Your water may just refuse to drain at all and you‘ll have to abandon your shower to avoid flooding.
2. The causes
The chances are that your shower’s drainage pipe has become blocked or that there’s a problem in the main drain further down. Hair tends to be the main culprit, getting trapped in the plughole and eventually clogging it completely. It may also be that soap scum and residue has combined with the hair to create a blockage or has collected over time to slow the flow of water. If the blockage is in your main drain, the causes range from leaves to a breakage in the pipe. In any case, we can easily repair the damage.
3. Preventing blockages
Remembering a few simple rules could save you a lot of hassle in the future. Install hair traps to help prevent blockages whenever you have a shower. You can also flush pipework regularly with soda crystals followed by hot running water. This should clear any soap scum that may be building up. Finally, check drainage gullies and drains outside every so often for leaves and other debris that will block the flow of water.
