Do I have a blocked shower?

It may take a while for the signs of a blocked shower drain to become obvious. If the following tell-tale signs can be identified, then give us a call:

  • Toilet drainage problems
    The shower and toilet pipes can be adjoined. If the water level is rising or overflowing after a flush then contact us immediately.
  • Water draining very slowly
    As soon as this begins to happen, contact us before it fully stops draining
  • Smells from the shower basin
    This is very easy to recognise and everyone within your household will appreciate having this quickly resolved
  • Gurgling noises from the plughole
    The air tends to get trapped in the pipes by a blockage and then makes a noise when it’s displaced

We would advise homeowners not to fix blocked shower drains themselves, as there is no guarantee the problem will be resolved, and it’s likely you may cause further damage if the problem is caused by a major blockage. We recommend calling the experts if you have shower blockage issues, rather than relying on home remedies.

Blocked Shower FAQs

Although home remedies can be effective, they may not provide a long-term solution. That’s why it’s important to seek expert advice for blocked shower problems.

There are a number of reasons why you may have a blocked shower, although it is likely to be from a build-up of hair, soap and dirt. Hair and soap tend to stick to drain walls, which prevents water from flowing freely. This builds up until the blockage is severe and the drain is completely blocked.

If you are the homeowner, you will have the responsibility of clearing the blockage. If your neighbours are having similar issues, it is likely that there is a shared drain and not just your house that requires cleaning.

Contact Pimlico if you are unsure what your next steps should be.

Boiler replacement and radiator move very professional

James and Andrew spent 2 days replacing the boiler and replumbing radiators. Highly professional approach, keeping all their equipment tidy, insuring all replacement work was of the highest standard and fully compliant. It's not cheap, but you get real peace of mind with the work done.

I contacted Pimlico and 45 minutes later

I contacted Pimlico and Darren, a drains specialist arrived inside 45 minutes. Within another 45 minutes he’d found the cause of my drain blockage, cleared it and cleaned up after himself. Great service.

Excellent service

My hot water stopped working in the morning, I called Pimlico and within 30 minutes the plumber had arrived. Lee was very cheerful and competent. He diagnosed the issues, purchased the required parts, and had everything installed & working before the end of the day. Great!

Great service from Pimlico

We needed a plumber to rectify a leak under the kitchen sink. The technician turned up exactly on time and put in a full days work. As part of this he replaced the incoming pipework, valves and flexible hoses which was necessary. His workmanship was excellent and we now have a proper, well laid out and installed water & waste system as opposed to the spaghetti that existed before. Service was excellent as it has been on previous occasions when we have used Pimlico.

Quality craftsmanship and great customer service

I have used Pimlico Plumbers for a few jobs in the past few years (mostly plumbing and electrical). Their workers are always polite, friendly, and considerate. They take care of your property and belongings (e.g. taking their shoes off in the house, covering/protecting surfaces, and cleaning after the job). Their work is thorough, of quality, and they keep you up to date through out the process. I highly recommend Pimlico Plumbers.
