Of course, there are some basic things you can do to prevent drains from clogging in the first place, such as:

  • Use a screen or other drain cover/protector to catch hair in the shower and prevent it from clogging the drain
  • Do not pour anything like kitchen grease down a bathtub drain, thinking it can handle this substance better than the kitchen sink
  • Periodically pour a cup of white vinegar down your tub drain and let it sit for half an hour, followed by hot water for 60 seconds. (This helps prevent unpleasant drain odor, as well.)

As with many home maintenance problems, a little prevention can go a long way. Preventing clogged shower and tub drains may take a little effort but can save you a lot of hassle in the long run.
