If this isn’t sufficient, you can work with other remedies to prevent blockages. Baking soda is a good option! A cup of baking soda followed by boiling water may fix it for you. It is important that you use proper baking soda.
Still not working? An old-fashioned plunger can do wonders! Put the red, rubber part over the shower pit and move the stick back and forth several times. Be careful when doing this when you just finished step 2, because of the boiling water. By plunging you might get your clogging solved.
If an old-fashioned plunger doesn’t work, you can use a plunger spring. This goes into the pipe and by pulling the spring upwards, you may be able to pull the reason for the clogging along with it.
If all the steps above didn’t help, there is nothing to do but call a professional plumbing company. We will visit you as soon as possible and solve the problem for you.
