14 Mar Rhino Rooter Clears Shower Drain
Location: A spa in a hotel in Fort Lauderdale Florida 33308.
Cause of problem: Shower drain was clogged in spa area from hair and oils.
Resolution: The shower drain was clogged due to the lotions and oils used during the spa treatments. These substances are then washed off after the treatments and these items will build up in the shower drain. The drain was snaked with a sewer machine to clear and clean the pipe of the debris. Showers in both commercial applications and residential home with both naturally build up with soap scum, hair, and body oils. Most of these objects will build up and clog in the p-trap of the shower. The p-trap is a “U” shaped drain that is meant to hold an amount of water to prevent smells and bugs from coming up the drain. It’s important to NEVER use any acid based “drain opening” products in your shower drain as this may cause major problems such as pipe separation or eating though the metal pipes. It is always best to contact a licensed professional to handle and of your drain issues. Please call us today at (954) 651-3229 in Broward or (561) 717-8523 in Palm Beach.
