Drain Worms In The Shower

Unclog Your Drain Filters

Unclogging your shower drain filter is a super easy and effective means of saying bye-bye to your drain worm problems. If left unattended, they can become a breeding ground for drain flies which means their worm larvae won’t be far behind.

Boiling Water

Just boiled water will do a very valiant job of breaking down any potential organic matter that may be hiding inside your drain. Drain worms love to nestle into organic matter, so its removal is paramount.

Baking Soda And Vinegar

When put together, however, they turn into a super powerful cleaning agent. Put your science cap on for this one because it’s about to get fizzy. Pour one cup of baking soda into two cups of vinegar and wait for it to start fizzing up.

Metal Pipe Brush

Give the sides of your drain pipe a good scrubbing to remove the stubborn organic matter that has built up over time down there. Even if you haven’t got a deep-set issue of organic matter, a pipe brush is still a good investment.

Plumbing Snake

Their long and bendy coil can weave its way deep into a shower drain pipe. To use one all you will need to do is insert its coil into the drain pipe. Once the coil is in, push and twist the coil through your drain until you are left with no more snake.


Once you have your PPE sorted, you will need to dilute the bleach into the water as per the bottle’s instructions. Pouring bleach onto the surface of your drain and down it will instantly kill any and all drain worms.


Remove the shower filter and give the drain a good old-fashioned plunging. If there is an organic matter issue down there, a plunger will hopefully be able to loosen it and bring it to the surface of the shower.
