3 Common Shower Plumbing Issues

3 Common Shower Plumbing Issues

As a homeowner, you have multiple household issues and chores to deal with on a daily basis. Occasionally, your shower will cause some problems. Luckily, Mr. Rooter in Middle Tennessee is here to help you with all of your shower and plumbing problems.

Clogged Shower Drains


This is the most common shower issue. From hair to other unmentionable items, your shower drain can become clogged quite easily. If you have multiple people using your shower on any given day, after time your drain will become clogged.

You have options! First, try using a chemical substance to unclog your drain. To ensure that your drain is free of the chemical after it does its job, be sure to run your hot water in the shower for at least ten minutes. This will get rid of any leftover chemical residue in your drain.

If that doesn’t work, you can combine baking soda and vinegar as a home remedy. Pour this down the drain and wait a while. After, run the hot water down your drain once again. If this solution does not work either, use a plumbing snake or call a plumber to fix your situation.

Water Smells Funky

When you are taking a shower and notice that your water smells a bit gross, it is a definite sign that your septic system needs to be cleaned and pumped. If you have hard water, you may notice that your water smells worse than normal. Call Mr. Rooter Plumbing to have your septic system inspected and pumped.

Water Pressure Changes

If your water pressure changes all of a sudden, the first place to inspect is your showerhead. Dependent upon the type of water your home or apartment has, lime deposits can build up and alter the pressure of your water. After cleaning your showerhead, if you still notice a significant pressure change, it is in your best interest to simply replace the showerhead.
