Bathtub Drain

Why is your bathtub taking longer to drain?

All the toilets, sinks, baths and showers in your home empty into the same drainage system. Day in and day out, drains do a lot of work for us but sometimes a build-up of debris can cause clogged drains. Your clogged bath or shower drain is most likely caused by a build-up of soap, shampoos and hair. The build-up can develop slowly over a period of time and may not be identified until the issue has become serious.

 

Once you spot the signs of a clogged bathtub (slow-draining water or unpleasant odours) you should take immediate action. As more soap and hair enter the drainage system, the clog will continue to grow. You may then have a serious issue on your hands. The sooner you deal with the problem, the easier it will be to resolve.

 

There are several steps that you can take to prevent drain clogs. Firstly, remove and clean your plugs. Pop-up plugs, in particular, can trap debris so be sure to give them a good clean. Secondly, use a drain protector to collect debris while draining water efficiently. Finally, you should clean your drains and sink overflow to remove any small blockages. We would recommend using baking powder and boiling water or white vinegar to give your drains the best clean!
