Do you have a blocked shower you need taking care of?
Here at Watford Drainage Experts, we understand the irritation a blocked shower can cause. We provide reliable and affordable drain unblocking services to Watford, Cassiobury, WD17 and the surrounding area. Just like a blocked toilet, a blocked shower can be a common occurrence in a domestic or commercial property. Many shower blockages are caused by residue build up from shampoo and shower gels, as well as loose hair which becomes lodged and clogs the pipe over time. Left too long, a blocked shower can have serious adverse affects. The system can flood and water can spill over into the room, damaging property and possessions. Flooding can also put further strain on overloaded pipes causing them to crack and break. For both domestic and commercial premises, a blocked shower can pose hazardous health risks. It is therefore important to take care of a blocked shower the moment it is noticed, to avoid additional repair expenditure and damage. The problem may not have even occurred in the shower. Fallen leaves or tree roots can obstruct drains and lead to the water backing up elsewhere. You may notice this first in the shower and believe the issue to have started here. Whatever the cause of your blocked shower may be, our team is fully qualified and well experienced in assessing blocked drains and fixing them promptly.
How to spot the signs of a blocked shower
It is important that you are aware of any changes in your shower drainage system. Noticing the following signs early on can help to avoid expensive repairs and serious damage. It is likely that you will need to seek professional advice. Smell: This is one of the easiest signs and possibly the most unpleasant to recognise, caused by foul water and build up due to blockages near the surface of the drain or further down the pipe. If there is a blockage, your nose will know about it soon enough. Sound: Similar to smell, if you start hearing any unusual sounds coming from your shower drainage system you will know something isn’t right. Noticed soon enough, this may be a give away sign that your system needs a good clean rather than extensive work, but it is always best to seek advice. Drainage: If the water in your shower is taking longer than normal to drain away, it is likely that a blockage has formed somewhere in the system, and you should contact someone sooner rather than later. If you notice any of these signs, make sure you give us a call straight away to help.
Can I fix the blockage myself?
It is true that there are many DIY way of fixing a blocked drain yourself. Many liquid formulations can even be bought over the counter and poured down the drain in attempt to clear the clog. However a lot of these methods work well as preventative measures rather than solutions. If you have noticed a potential blockage in your system, pull on some cleaning gloves and take a closer look. It may be that the blockage is easily accessible and due to a build up of hair on the surface of the drain at the plug. If so, you may be able to easily remove this without forcing the blockage deeper into the pipe. If the system clears as normal once you have removed this kind of blockage, then you need not worry. If not, you may have a bigger problem on your hands and it is best to give one of our team a call to help. Be careful when assessing a blockage as many DIY methods can only worsen the situation. Blockages can be forced further down the pipe which can cause the system to flood or even collapse. What was a simple scale blockage has now become an extensive drain excavation project that will require professional expertise at your expense. It is therefore advisable that you always seek professional advice as to how to best deal with the blockage.

The best time to fix a drainage leak is before it happens, by properly connecting water supply and waste line fittings.
Drainage is the natural or artificial removal of surface and sub-surface water from an area. The internal drainage of most agricultural soils is good enough to prevent severe waterlogging (anaerobic conditions that harm root growth), but many soils need artificial drainage to improve production or to manage water supplies.
