Is It Bad To Plunge A Shower Drain?

Many homeowners try to clear slow shower drains on their own with a household plunger. This isn’t a good idea, as you can cause the blockage to travel down further into the pipe instead of forcing it up and out. Since it’s not recommended to plunge a shower drain, what can you do instead?

Here at Natchez Heating & Cooling, we’re here for our customers. When it comes to plumbing issues like slow shower drains and frequent clogs, we understand your frustrations. Read on to learn more about how to clear a slow draining shower and steps you can take to keep your pipes clear in the future.

To Plunge Or Not To Plunge

Plungers rely on suction to pull a clog loose. It’s difficult to create suction when your shower has two drains – the clogged floor drain and the overflow tub drain. Without proper suction, you’re likely to force the clog deeper into your pipes rather than drawing it up and out. Instead of plunging, many homeowners opt for chemical shower drain cleaners to clear their clogs.

This is also not ideal since these products are extremely caustic and can damage your pipes, leading to leaks and broken connections. If you’re determined to go the DIY route, we recommend manually removing the clog with a drain snake. If using a drain snake on your own doesn’t appeal to you, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team – we’ll be more than happy to eliminate your clog and get your drain back to normal.

Dependable Shower Repair From Our Team

Once you’ve taken advantage of our professional shower drain cleaning services, you’ll likely want to keep your drains functioning well into the future. We recommend using a hair trap over your shower drain to catch loose hair before it gets caught in your plumbing. You can also manually remove small clogs as soon as your drain shows signs of slowing before the blockage gets worse.

In addition to long-lasting drain cleaning services, we also offer comprehensive pipe repair, leak detection and bathroom plumbing services. From toilets and sinks to showerheads and leaks, our team has seen it all. Reach out to us to get started today!
