Did you know that an adult spends on average 416 days in the bathroom throughout their lives? This is a lot of “me-time”, which is why it is so important to ensure that everything works properly. You should make sure that your shower works properly since most people take a shower at least once a day. You need to be aware of common problems with your shower to ensure it is working properly.

This guide will help you understand the most common problems with showers and how to fix them.


Clogs in the shower drain are quite common. Clogs can be caused by hair, dirt, or soap. This is especially true if your children are small. Baking soda and vinegar can be used to clean a small clog. You can also attempt to fix the drain clog yourself.

You can also use a plumber snake to clear the larger clogs. You should use caution when using a drain snake or chemical cleaners. You could cause more damage to your drains if you don’t understand what you are doing. Call your plumber if the drain clog is not easy to clear. Only plumbers have the expertise and tools to remove drain clogs.


A shower with insufficient pressure is perhaps the most annoying thing. If your shower does not have enough pressure it is usually a problem with the faucet. This is an easy fix. To install a high-flow faucet, all you have to do is contact your local plumber. There may be more serious issues. You may have silt or dirt in your water pipes due to a leak in the line. A professional plumber will clean the pipes and fix the leak, restoring normal water flow, and removing your low water pressure issues.

Leaky Shower Faucet

Leakage in your shower faucet could indicate that you need to replace gaskets, seals, or rings. We recommend hiring a local plumber if you don’t have the experience to disassemble a shower faucet. Although replacement seals and gaskets can be inexpensive, it can be challenging to find the right fit. It is best to get help from a plumber.

Bad Smells

Bad smells in the shower can be due to a variety of reasons. Bad odors are usually caused by a blockage or mold growth from water leaks. It is best to ventilate any area that has a foul odor. If the smell persists, you may have sewer gas coming from your drains. If so, you should call Clog Kings LLC to take care of the problem.

Now that you are familiar with the most common problems in showers, you can decide if your bathroom needs any plumbing work.
