Gadgets and Tools to Keep Your Shower Drain Unclogged

Clogged shower drains are frustrating and can be expensive to fix, but there are some easy ways provided by Candu Plumbing & Rooter to keep them clear. To avoid clogging, use a drain screen, which should be emptied after every shower. Also, brush your hair before getting in the shower.

Installing a shower caddy

One way to keep the shower drain unclogged is to install a shower caddy. These products can be found in various types and styles. For example, you can choose a hanging or pole style. Both styles can hold a wide variety of items and de-clutter the showerhead area.

If you’re on a budget, you can always buy a less expensive pole caddy to save space in your shower. A good example is the OXO Good Grips Quick-Extend Aluminum Pole Caddy, which has a single telescoping pole. It’s also backed by a warranty.

Another great option is the Simplehuman Adjustable Shower Caddy. It’s easy to install and has a more sturdy design. This shower caddy is made from aluminum and has adjustable shelves and a rubberized hook to hold it in place. This is a great option for those with handheld or fixed showerheads. One downside is that it doesn’t come with any adhesive stickers to attach to the wall.

Using a bathtub drain protector

If your shower drain becomes clogged, you need to make sure that the drain is unobstructed. This can be done by unscrewing the drain stopper and checking to see if the drain is open. You can also use a flashlight to see into the drain and fish out any debris. Boiling water can also unclog a drain. However, you should not use this method on PVC pipes.

When you purchase a bathtub drain protector for your shower, it is important to choose one that is made of durable materials. Stainless steel drain covers are a good choice because they are strong and long-lasting. Another factor to consider before buying a drain protector is the design. It should fit the drain openings and have a good layout. The drain protector should also be flexible so that it can fit different drainage openings.

Once you have a drain clog, you can use a snake or drain cleaner to clean it. To use a snake, you can first insert the snake into the drain. Next, turn the handle counterclockwise to hook the clog and then back out slowly so that you do not lose the clog.

Brushing your hair before hopping in the shower

Brushing your hair before hopping in the bath or shower is a great way to prevent breakage and minimize hair loss. Using a paddle brush, which offers bouncy padding and light tension, will help to detangle hair. Brushing your hair before the shower is especially important for oily or curly hair, which tends to get tangled easily.

Using an OXO Good Grips drain protector

If you have a clogged shower drain, you may want to consider a plumber in Chatsworth. These are made of sturdy plastic and feature small hooks on the end. The snake is also easy to handle, as it features a loop at the top so you can hang it. There are three different kinds of snakes to choose from, each with different features and benefits.

One type of drain protector is made of stainless steel and is rust and mildew-resistant. This drain protector is simple to use and fits into any standard-sized drain. The rim is weighted, making it easy to install and remove. It fits securely and is easy to clean. It prevents hair and other debris from clogging your drain.
