How to unblock a shower SE1




With regular use of bathroom amenities, such as showers and bath tubs, comes the risk of them getting blocked. This happens after you use it for some time and don't maintain it (and clean it) properly, or because the plumbing is old, in which case it is quite common to experience blocks. Blocks mean that water will not go down the drain properly and will stay in the shower. In this case you have to consider your options because you don't want to flood the bathroom when taking a shower. A Blocked shower SE1 might be quite easy to repair yourself as long as you choose the right way to do it. Of course, the easiest solution for a blocked shower is to contact a professional service that will respond quickly and provide a safe and swift solution. On the other hand, there might not be the need to contact professionals and spend money on them when you can solve the problem with a Blocked shower SE1yourself, using nothing else but the common household ingredients such as baking soda and lemon acid. Mix those two in equal ratio, and after you remove water from the shower, put the mixture into the drain and then pour hot water over it. You will notice foaming, which is a sign of the chemical reaction between baking soda and lemon acid. This chemical reaction will dissolve dirt, residue, hair and grease from plumbing and enable the shower to function normally again. Of course, one has to be patient during this cleaning procedure. It is quite possible that you will not be able to remove all of the dirt from the shower drain right away – it might take several times before you completely clean out the drain from all the dirt and grease. However, if you remain persistent, your shower will function perfectly once again – and with minimum effort and cost.
