Ok, I am about to admit total cluelessness on how to unclog a shower drain. I almost wasn’t going write about it because it seemed so stupid but then I realized, I can’t be the only one out there that has taken a shower for weeks and stood in ankle deep water? I mean, am I really the only one. -ha. My grandfather and dad told me, yes I am the only one.
I think I used 2 bottles of drano trying to fix the problem. Needless to say, there was so much hair in the drain, it didn’t help much.
I had no idea that the shower drain top unscrewed and that the drain plug completely comes out. Well, imagine my surprise when I found all my nasty hair wrapped around the plug.
I used the same screw driver that I used to unscrew the drain to remove the gross hair. I suppose cutting it with scissors would have worked to but the screw driver did the trick. Cover your eyes if you don’t want to be grossed out…..
Screw the drain top back on and imagine that, the water went down the hole.
Please tell me I am not the only one who had no idea how to unclog a shower drain. Don’t be like me and wait until the water is rising above your feet in the shower, unscrew the drain and take a look. Ok so now that I have put this online for everyone who knows me to poke fun, I will sign off ;). PS. for more DIY tutorials, be sure to check out our home and projects page.
