Recently I installed a shower drain grate/basket to prevent hair from clogging my drain pipes. My wife has complained ever since as her hair now plugs the grate causing her to have to remove the hair several times during her shower. Prioir to the grate the pipes would plug off causing me to have to plunger the drain on a regular basis. She thinks I should remove the grate as not only is it causing her to clean the hair out while she's showering she also says it causes soap scum to build up as the water tends to stand when she gets out. I've told her to ensure she cleans the grate before, during and after she is done showering but she seems to think this is to much. Does anybody have advice on different grates/baskets mine sits in the drain hole.
