Effective Solutions for Clearing Blocked Shower Drains

1. Boiling Water Technique:

Start by boiling water on the stove and slowly pour it down the drain. Gradually pouring boiling water down the drain helps dissolve and dislodge the cause of the clog. Use a saucepan or stockpot filled with ample hot water, ensuring a slow pour to prevent pooling and cooling. This method is effective for most common issues.

2. Homemade Volcano Method:

A classic school science project, the homemade volcano, can work wonders for your plumbing issues. Mix a third cup of baking soda with a third cup of vinegar in a bowl (add vinegar to the baking soda) and immediately pour the fizzing mixture down the drain. This approach is suitable for more stubborn blockages.

3. Use a Coat Hanger to Remove Obstructions:

If the previous solutions fail, fashion a makeshift ‘snake’ by straightening a coat hanger and inserting it into the pipe to dislodge the blockage. If unsuccessful, it’s best to contact Sydney’s Drain Men. We’ll promptly send someone to fix the issue without causing damage to your plumbing or your budget.
