Shower Clog

What is a shower drain clog?

A shower drain clog is an obstruction in your shower’s draining system.

A shower drain clog prevents water from draining to the trap. If the water is pooling around your ankles or takes a long time to drain once you’ve shut the water off, you have a clogged shower drain.

Shower clogs are always a pain. No one wants to deal with rising water as they take a shower. 

What are the most common causes of a shower clog?

There are multiple reasons why your shower drain may become clogged. Common issues that can lead to a shower clog include too much soap build-up, hair, and grit, or small debris. To prevent a shower drain clog, use a mesh shower drain cover and empty it out daily.

A shower clog can also be the result of improper plumbing. Did you know that, according to Illinois Plumbing Code, shower drains need to be a minimum of 2” in diameter? 

A bathtub drain can measure a minimum of 1 ½ “, but a shower needs to be bigger because of how the water flows. Having the correct piping will prevent clogs.

A third common cause of a clogged shower drain is the use of a shower to clean up big messes. Over time, the repeated use of a shower drain for this purpose will eventually lead to a clog.

Using a shower drain to clean big messes should be avoided under all circumstances, as grime and hard water soap eventually build up and lead to clogs.
