Below you’ll find three ways to hammer out this DIY fix it all on your own, and if you aren’t able to clear the blocked shower drain then simply pick up the phone, give us a ring, and we will take care of everything for you!

Boil up some water on the stove and then pour it down the drain

Believe it or not, good old-fashioned hot water – boiling hot water – poured slowly down your drain just a little bit at a time is usually more than enough to clear up, break up, and dissolve whatever it is that is causing the clogged shower drain in the first place. You’ll want to fill up a saucepan or a stockpot with plenty of hot water to get the job done, and pour that water directly to the train slow enough for it to work its way down without pulling up and cooling down, but this should be more than enough to handle most of the simple issues you’re dealing with.

Make a homemade volcano to flush your shower system

A good old-fashioned elementary school science fair project – the homemade volcano – is going to do wonders to help you fix any of your plumbing issues right out of the gate. All you’ll have to do is mix a third of a cup of baking soda with a third of a cup of vinegar in a bowl (adding the vinegar to the baking soda and not vice versa), and as soon as it starts to fizz and – almost instantly – dump the mixture down the drain. This should clear clogged shower drain issues that are a little bit more stubborn.

Dig out the obstruction with a coat hanger

If either of those two solutions work, you’ll have to send down a “snake” by straightening a coat hanger, fishing it down your plumbing company and hoping it is going to be enough to clear blocked shower drain issues. If that doesn’t work, it’s probably best to grab the phone and contact us here at Silverwater Plumbing to handle the heavy lifting for you. We’ll send someone out almost immediately to fix the problem ASAP, without ever breaking your bank account (or your plumbing) along the way!

Great service and very professional. Replaced my hot water from an indoor to outdoor unit and upgraded relevant gas and water pipes. Great attention to details too even though the job was quite big. For example sanding off the copper pipe after cutting it before installation. Price is fair and you get discount for multiple jobs. Highly recommend them.

I highly recommend Silverwater Plumbing services to everyone, they are friendly and experienced. Our toilet which is attached to the wall had been blocked for a while, we are happy that it is in use again. These guys detached it and resealed it all perfectly. We were offered the best quote and the best service ! Thank you for the 5 star service

The hot water in my shower was not working properly, a guy named Solomon from Silverwater Plumbing came out and did and amazing job. He was polite, professional and went as far as explaining to me in layman's term what the issue was. Very well informed with his work and problem was fixed in no time. Thank you Solomon!! Highly recommended.
