Clogged pipes are a real nightmare. To get rid of them, we do not need expensive chemical preparations at all. Very effective means can be prepared by ourself. So how to get rid of the problem with clogged shower drains?
Push and pull off all shower drains
If we are concerned about the destruction of the installation by chemicals or if they have been found to be ineffective, we can try the second simple way to remove the blockage, repel or suck the dirt out.
This is a very simple device called a rubber scoop or a scoop. It is a rubber goblet with a stick. It is applied to the drainage hole and several times vigorously pushes and pulls the stick, thus pumping the wastewater that could not flow freely.
For the operation of the pusher was effective, free hand to clog the overflow hole in the shower. Pumping can cause both sucking out the impurities as well as pushing them to the remainder of the installation.
In the first case, it is necessary to extract them from the sanitary unit so that they do not clog the shower drain again. If they are pushed further, they go to pipes of larger diameter in which they should no longer be stuck.
Instead of a rubber pusher, we can use a more modern device (also called a pusher) in the form of a large syringe or gun with a rubber suction cup. With it, we can also both aspirate and push (after filling the device with water) substances that cause congestion.
Use a sewer spring
The embankment in the shower drain may turn out to be so large that it will not be possible to remove it with a tappet. Then use a sewer spring, called. This is a flexible wire wound into a spiral, with a crank handle on one side and a sharp spike on the other.
Placed in the inlet to the tube and turning the crank, causing it to push into the depth of installation. The obstacles encountered are then pierced through the outlet. However, to use this tool, we must first dismantle the siphon under the sanitary ware, the spring will not pass through it. This is embarrassing for built-in bathtubs or shower trays, but if we have the option of getting into the siphon installation, we should do so without the help of a professional.
These methods are very effective. However, if our problem is not resolved, contact a plumber.
