Bath and shower drains are prone to blockages because of the substances that typically get washed down them.

combination of stray hairs, small lumps of soap, old skin, grit and dirt can accumulate to block pipes, causing the water to drain away slowly and to back up in your shower tray or bath.

There are number of techniques you can try to shift a blocked shower drain, such as using a plunger or removing the U-bend and cleaning it out. These approaches, however, have their limitations.

A plunger will not work to unblock a bath or shower if the blockage is some way down the pipe. Likewise, removing the U-bend in the pipe might be extremely fiddly if it is hidden behind a panel in the bath or shower tray.

But, here at Buster, we have the perfect solution to this particular dilemma.

Whether you have a full blockage or are struggling with slow draining water, Buster Bathroom Plughole Unblocker will dissolve hair and clear sludge to ensure that water can flow freely.

But this solution is not just suitable for when a blockage appears. We believe prevention is better than cure and used regularly Buster Bathroom Plughole Unblocker can help avoid build-ups in the first place.

Our advice is that every month, you should pour about a third of the bottle down the plughole and leave overnight before flushing the pipe through with hot water in the morning.
