Common Causes of Clogged Shower Drains

Posted on June 5th, 2015 by BlueMountain

If you’ve ever experienced a clog in your shower or bathtub, it is imperative to have it fixed immediately. If you don’t, you won’t be bathing anytime soon! The question here is, what are the most common causes of clogged drains? We are here to set the record straight.



It is no secret that your hair can accumulate in the bottom of your shower. If this continues to happen every time you take a shower, you might have a clog on your hands. Luckily, there is a simple solution to this problem. Just have a hair trap installed!


Soap Scum

Unfortunately, soap scum can build up in your drains. Instead of dissolving overtime, soap scum hardens to the walls of the drain. You can prevent soap scum buildup by never putting pieces of soap down the drain.


Hard Water

Hard water can leave mineral deposits on your plumbing fixtures. This can prevent water from passing through and create a clog. Fortunately, this can be remedied by having a water softener installed by one of our plumbers.
