If you drop an item into the toilet other than toilet paper or human waste, there is a good chance it will get caught in the U shaped bend in the drain. It is important to remind children that they should not put items into the toilet bowl.



Hair is notorious for clogging shower drains. It becomes a problem when hair gradually accumulates in the drain.


Soap Scum

Last but certainly not least, soap scum can also do a number on your drains. If you have hard water, soap scum buildup is even more likely. Hard water is water that has a high concentration of minerals. Overtime, these minerals can buildup and clog your drains.
