Blocked Showers And What Causes Them

Blocked showers can be a major inconvenience causing water to pool up around your feet. It can also lead you shower leaking as the shower waste pipe is not designed to hold sitting water.

Hair and soap buildup: over time hair can build up in your shower drain and create a blockage within your drainage pipe work. This is especially common with people with long hair or if multiple people within your house are using the same shower. To prevent hair buildup use a drain cover to catch the hair before it enters the drain and clean the cover regularly to prevent any unnecessary hair from going down the drain.
