Unusual shower waste totally blocked

Postby bellspaws » Wed Jan 13, 2021 12:08 pm

My shower is completely blocked. The shower waste is as in the photo attached. I can't find anything similar to it online. The shower and all accessories, including the shower waste were bought from Victoria Plum 2 yrs ago, and installed by a local company. Unknown to me at the time they didn't use the shower waste that came from VP but used this very unusual waste. Now it it totally blocked and there seem no way to unblock it. Any ideas at all what type of waste it is and how best to unblock it? Thanks in advance

Hi bellspaws
That’s a wierd one, suggest you take a piece of garden wire, bend a small hook on one end and have a root around in the trap.

We have two wastes identical to yours. They were fitted by subcontractors to Bellway in early 2014. They have never blocked but we do take the precaution of periodically using industrial cleaning agents. Our neighbour at a previous property had a completely blocked waste from a hand wash basin that had been expensively tiled- completely enclosed. Brown malt vinegar and baking powder left overnight did the trick.
(If it is any help the sanitary ware in the bathrooms in question is by Roca.)
