RE: scum in the shower sump sticking the float switch

This just seems like a routine maintenance chore. Pull up the floor board, unscrew the cover to the shower sump and pull out the hair and scum that fouls the switch. Takes maybe 5 minutes. All of the chemical treatments mentioned aren't going to do anything about the hair which is the real problem.

* could resort to the recognised cure for this problem, (if you use the shower sump system), and that is replace the sump pump with a manually switched Gulper pump, which will not be blocked with hair, or anything else.
