Unfortunately, once the drainage problems have begun, they will usually only get gradually worse over time.
Don’t worry. When working with a Blocked shower Battersea, there are several easy and simple methods that you might want to apply by yourself for unblocking the shower.
- Using boiling water
This is the easiest method ever to use to solve the blocked shower. Boil up as much water as the kettle can hold. Pour it slowly down into your shower drain in a couple of stages, allowing the boiling water to work for a few seconds in between each pour.
- Clearing the strainer/plughole
If the boiling water method does not work effectively, try to clear out the plughole, even though perhaps it is not the source of the clogged shower. See if you can spot what’s causing the blockage in the drain. A lot of unwanted sticky substances may have accumulated on the strainer or stopper. Wear a pair of rubber gloves and have a plastic bag ready for whatever you may pull out from the drain.
- Using a plunger to unblock
Besides the sink, a plunger might be helpful for a clogged shower. Put the plunger into the plughole after the bath tub is filled with water. Ensure the plunger’s pressure is directly pressed on the clog then plunge up and down for about 20-30 seconds.
- Use a hook
Sometimes the blockage of the shower drain is unreachable by hand. You can try fishing out the clog with a piece of wire. You can improvise a tool with a wire coat hanger, fashioning a hook at the end of it.
