Default Shower drain, won't drain



Does anyone know how I would clear whatever may be clogging this drain? There is a clear plastic see through glass on the pump under the closet floor. Does anyone know if this comes apart and if so how?


I can hear the pump and tried sucking out all water and then adding clean water but still no draing.

Easy one !



your strainer filter is clogged !


At the entry of the pump you have a little clear plastic adapter ...it splits in two : there is a screened strainer in there....clean it , Et voila !


to open it , turn counter clockwise 1/4 turn


If you are having a hard time , remove the whole plastic adapter from the pump ...it might be easier when you look at it this way ......Screw it back in place when done !

Dan,


I have a HD model and took outt the closet floor to get to the pump. I see the clear plastic part wih the strainer in it but cannot get it apart. Does it split in half? When you say remove the whole plastic adapter what exactly is that. Sorry its a bit tightin their and Im not small guy.

I got it off, there was some crap in the strainer but not enough to clog it. Not sure why Im not getting any suction, hoping the diaphram does not have dry rot. Any other suggestions?

If that does work, remove the cover under the vehicle and check lines. depending on the age of the vehicle the cover can be hard to remove, rust and such.

like 289 cobra mentions



you might have to get under the Rialta and remove the little box that covers the P trap looking tube


that might be the problem


expect to almost destroy the box ......



the plastic part in the shower can be taken out too ...jsut unscrew it , when you get access under



at worst, those pumps rebuild kit are not expensive

It sounds like you have lost your suction prime for draining your shower area. Use this method to prime your pump to suck water out. First, remove the stariner on the shower drain, then place a water hose into the drain opening and have someone turn on the water while you turn on the drain pump. The water pressure from the hose should force water into the pump and prime it. If the shower pump is not used a lot, it can loose its prime and needs to be reprimed. If you pump will not hold its prime, then purchase a rebuild kit (cheaper than new pump) and replace the diaphram.


Remember when you winterize to pour RV antifreeze into this drain and pump it to replace the water. Also pour this same RV antifreeze into the bath sink and drain this out to fill the pee trap behind the wall. Same with the kitchen sink pee trap.

Or.....


Use a shop vac or other wet vac and suck out the drain from the shower end. Saved me a lot of looking!
