I didn’t know how else to word the title. Here’s the deal, we bought a home and our “master bath” has a shower stall and not a full tub type shower (the house was built in 1982 so back then they didn’t have the typical master baths we all know of now). Problem is, I have medium length hair and my hair will clog up a shower faster than anything and I’m so tired of cleaning the thing out. Previously we a “normal” tub shower and I used one of the hair catchers you placed over the drain and that worked great, but in a shower stall if you use one of those then you cover too many of the drain holes and the water will not drain like it should. I have Googled and searched and cannot find a hair catcher/drain protector for a shower stall anywhere!! Anyone else have this problem? Anyone have one that’s meant for a shower stall?

My hair is very thick, dair and just past my shoulders and clogs the drains so easily, it’s gross. In our shower stall, we have put one of those rubber catchers over the drain, and yes it covers some of the holes, but we haven’t had a problem with drainage. Plus the FI just moves it aside when he showers, and it’s just in there for me when I need it. Is the backlog of water really bad, or can you deal with it if you can’t find anything?

@Ryansgirl: haha, I feel dumb now. I just remembered since I last tried the typical drain cover and had the water pooling we had the typical shower head installed. Since then we’ve gone to a super “green” one that uses far less water and maybe I’ll be okay and try another catcher again. I just hate standing water while I shower.

Hopefully that works…
This is an unusual solution DH came up with b/c he hates to clean the drain and it’s all his hair falling out-mostly. He takes the drain strainer and puts it upside down over the drain so it looks like a hat. It doesn’t move away or anything while draining. That catches everything and is easier to clean consistently since the hair is spread out over a wider surface instead of sinking into a narrow diameter of the drain. (Wish I could draw a picture)
