Three Bad Shower Habits For Your Plumbing

 Alina Demidchik

For most people, taking a shower can be a time to unwind after a long day, or get themselves ready for a hectic day yet to come. However, there are a number of different bad shower habits that many of us are guilty of that lead to issues later on with our plumbing. These are just a number of different reasons.

Bad Habit #1 – Ignoring That Leak In Your Shower

You have a small leak in your shower – but there are only a few drops escaping each time right? We have said it many times before (and we will repeat it here) eventually small leaks are going to turn into a large loss. Even if you are only losing 10 drips per minute on a shower, that could amount to upwards of 500 gallons of water per year that you lose. If you want to save both water and money, make sure that you fix a leak at the first sign of a drip. If you are not sure what to do, make sure that you call the professionals.

Bad Habit #2 – Waiting too long to clean the shower

There are no two ways about it – having to clean your shower and your bathtub is never going to be fun. However, it is necessary. Your bathtub and shower easily become a nest for fungi, mold, possibly even staph bacteria. Make sure that you clean your shower regularly and you will find that everything proceeds more smoothly.

Bad Habit #3 – Letting Everything Go Down The Shower

Dirt, debris, soap, hair – everything makes their way into our shower drain. Even though a small bit might not seem like a big deal at first, eventually they are going to build up to a massive drain blockage. A drain guard offers you a simple solution to the issue. These are rather inexpensive and are ultimately going to save you a lot of problems. Make sure that you only use products that were actually meant to be used in the shower – otherwise, you are going to find that your plumbing might not be able to handle it.
