Shower Drain Clogs in Sacramento

Published on November 18, 2013

Hair and Soap Most Common Causes of Shower Clogs

There are a lot of reasons why a clog can develop in your shower. Hair and soap are the most common culprits. When soap scum gets into your drainpipe it can stick to the sides of your plumbing and catch any hair that goes down the drain. You can install a trap to keep hair from going down your pipes, but you’ll need to make sure you clean it periodically.

When we get a call for this type of problem, the first thing we typically do is use a plumber’s snake to clear out any standing water so that we can more easily access the drain. Then, we sometimes use a video camera to take a close look at the pipes to see how large the obstruction may be. If the clog is stubborn enough, we may need to use a hydro-jet to clear the line. This will not only eliminate the blockage, it will also scour your pipes clean and restore them to their normal diameter.
