Having a clogged shower can be very frustrating, so it is important to be aware of what causes clogs in the first place if you are going to try to avoid the problem starting in your home. The most common reason for clogs to form is when hair and soap build up in your pipes. If you don’t have a drain screen in your shower, this is vital, since it will stop most of the hair and bigger soap chunks from going down the drain. If you want to avoid losing a lot of hair in the shower, brushing your hair before your shower can be very helpful.
You should also make sure that your soap is kept in such a way that it doesn’t leak into the tub.
If you have a drain screen, you should make sure to clean it often, since there will be a buildup of hair in the screen impeding water flow. Just don’t empty out everything down the tub drain, since that would completely defeat the purpose of having the screen in the first place.
