Why Does Your Bath or Shower Get Clogged?

There are many reasons for a clog in your bath or shower. The most common causes are hair and soap scum build-up. Over time these can create an obstruction that is difficult to shift. Other causes of clogged drains are things like dirt, grease and other objects that can build up and cause problems. In some cases, the obstructions can be caused by things like tree roots or other objects that have got into the pipes. Whatever the cause of your blocked drain, there are a number of ways that you can clear it, including calling us at Regency Drainage Brighton.

Can You Unblock Your Drain Yourself?

If you’ve got a bathtub in your house in Brighton that’s become clogged, there are a few things you can try to unblock it yourself. Below we’ve outlined some simple tips on how you might be able to fix the problem yourself with items you can get in most diy stores, some boiling water, a coat hanger and some common household chemicals like baking soda or white vinegar.  If after trying these things your blockage is still not cleared then you will probably need to call our professionals here at Regency Drainage Brighton. We have access to specialist equipment like CCTV cameras and flexible augers that should be able to quickly identify and clear the blockage for you. However, you can try these first:

Try pouring hot water down your drain

The first step is to spot what is causing the obstruction, so pull out the plug or remove the chrome cover of your waste pipe to look for clues like hair and dirt.

Then you should try pouring boiling water down your drainage, being careful not to splash any on yourself.

This might be enough to melt any small obstructions that are causing slow draining in your bathrooms. Pour in a little more hot water to be sure.

Use a coat hanger to fish out hair and soap scum

Another simple tip is to use an old coat hanger (or something similar) to catch hair or soap scum that may have built up inside the pipe causing the clog.

Try using baking soda and white vinegar

A popular tip for unblocking drains is mixing together vinegar baking soda which creates a powerful chemical reaction that should hopefully jolt the blockage loose or can generate enough heat to melt away any obstructions in your pipes while also cleaning them at the same time! After everything has cooled down. Poor in enough water to clear out any residue.

Use caustic soda (also known as ‘sulphuric acid’)

Caustic soda (also known as ‘sulphuric acid’) is another strong chemical that can be used to unblock drainage systems but should only really be considered as a last resort due to its corrosive nature and toxic fumes. This harsh chemical can melt blockages like grease and fat. It has a strong exothermic reaction (it heats up) to break down shower blockages or drain blockages. Note that caustic soda can corrode the skin and has a powerful reaction when it meets water or other drain-cleaning chemicals. It has been known to generate heat and cause explosions and eruptions of toxic fumes. It may melt pipework if it reacts with sealant or split the pipework due to the heat created as a by-product. For these reasons, it must only be applied to a dry drain. Call a plumber If you are uneasy about taking your drain apart or using chemicals, then call a professional plumber.

Call out a professional

If after trying all of these things your blockage is still not cleared then you will probably need to call our professionals who have access to specialist equipment like CCTV cameras and flexible augers that should be able to quickly identify and clear the blockage for you with very little fuss.

Here at Regency Drainage Brighton, we can clear your clogged bathroom within minutes at a fixed price. Our engineers use the latest CCTV equipment to survey your drainage systems and identify the cause of the obstruction. They will then use a strong approach to clear the clog, starting with the least invasive method first. If this does not work they will move on to the next stage until the obstruction is cleared.

How Do We Carry Out Bath and Shower Unblocking in Brighton?

Experiencing poor drainage in your shower/ bath? Call us for prompt attention.

The first thing our engineers will do is carry out a thorough inspection of your drains using our state-of-the-art CCTV equipment. This will allow us to identify the cause of the clog and determine the best course of action to take. In most cases, we will be able to clear the clog without the need for any strong chemicals or power equipment. However, in some cases, a more staged approach may be necessary. If your drains are severely clogged then we may need to use a plumber’s snake or a flexible auger to break up the obstructions and remove them from your piping systems. In very rare cases, where the clogs are extremely stubborn, we may need to use strong chemicals or even caustic soda to break down the clog. However, this should only be used as a last resort as there is a risk of generating heat and creating a powerful chemical reaction which could damage your piping systems.

Once we have cleared your drains we will carry out a thorough clean-up operation so that there is no risk of further obstructions occurring in the future. We understand that having a blocked drainage system can be very frustrating and cause a great deal of inconvenience. That’s why we aim to clear your drains quickly and get your shower working again.

If you’re considering draining pipes or unblocking your shower wastes yourself, then we reckon that you’ll need some special equipment and equipment which you probably won’t have in your toolbox, so it’s wise to call a professional. A DIY method of unblocking a drain involves using an auger (also called a plumber’s snake), which is able to push through the obstruction and break it up. You will also need protective clothing such as rubber gloves & eyewear, along with other items like a bucket and disinfectant. Alternatively, you could use chemical agents – but this process has its drawbacks mainly because of harmful chemicals being involved, not to mention that if used incorrectly they might cause severe burns to your skin and eyes.

How much will it cost?

The price will vary depending on the location of your house in Brighton and how long it takes to unblock your bath shower waste.

What causes a blockage?

Blockages occur when items that aren’t supposed to be flushed down the toilet are being flushed. These items include sanitary products, wet wipes, condoms, nappies/diapers and cotton buds (q tips). Additionally, grease and fat can solidify in cold pipes and cause a blockage.
