Any recommendations on how to clear a shower drain by Park Ridge? We have tried a drain snake, air pressure drain gun and drano. Any other ideas?

This isn’t a quick fix but more of a preventive maintenance tip. At least once a month put a couple of tablespoons of baking soda in your drain then pour about half a cup of regular white vinegar onto the baking soda. (do not use cleaning vinegar) these two chemicals will mix and foam up causing a natural drain cleaner and deodorizer. Wait about 10 minutes and follow with a large pan of boiling hot water. I also use dawn and hot water to remove grease from kitchen sink drains. Dawn is a great degreaser.

For the tub, I remove the over flow cover and plug that while I work on the tub drain. Shower only dies not have this. But thought I would throw it out there.

Try a plunger; I’ve used it on kitchen sink and it works. If that fails, call a plumber

I paid a plumber $120 to do 15 minutes of work and he cleared it right up. Tried to do all remedies myself and failed

Did you try dawn and boiling water? Not sure how clogged your drain is? I'd try plunging like a maniac first. I mean like crazy and then some more I've had to do this on kitchen drains just when you want give up do it again and again all of a sudden it will clear! Good luck 🍀

My husband swears by the plunger and hot water. If really stubborn, pour vinegar and baking soda then use the plunger.

Be careful using drain cleaners. Many of them are harmful to the drain and vent system materials as well as the people in the house. And if you end up calling a plumber, please make sure you inform them that you ha e used drain cleaner for their safety. I would never recommend using drain cleaner and it is not because I own Goode Plumbing. I’d sooner see you use a competitor than a drain cleaning product. If we can be of help, let me know.

What is the layout of the bathroom ? Many shower drain obstructions are not too far from the drain in the shower floor you wqnt to determine aporiximately where the obstruction is at. If your bathroom has a fairly straightforward, typical layout (toilet, then the sink, then the shower), one thing you can try is to fill up the bathroom sink at let it drain. If the shower does not back up, the obstruction is between the shower and the sink. If draining the sink causes the shower to back up, then the obstruction is between the sink and the stack. If that’s the case, you can try to remove the sink p trap and rod from there. Make sure the rod is going down, not up the vent. If the obstruction is between the shower and the sink, you will want to try to rod from the shower and make it all the way to the stack. Those hand rodders they sell at the hardware store may help remove an obstruction that is very close to the source. It sounds like you’ve tried this.
