Low Water Pressure: Not A High Pressure Situation

May 25, 2014

After a stressful, hot summers day, the best way to unwind is a long shower. But what if your water pressure just isn’t doing the trick? It won’t be as relaxing as you had imagined. Here are some tips to make sure your low water pressure situation isn’t putting pressure on you:

  • Freshen Up Your Faucet: Overtime, mineral deposits left behind by hard water can weaken the flow of water. Be sure to thoroughly clean your shower faucet and aerator screens by soaking them in white vinegar for a few hours.
  • Switch Your Shower Head: Purchasing a new shower head is a quick way to improve your shower’s water pressure; especially if your current shower head is an older model. They are inexpensive and can be found at your local hardware store.
  • Make Sure Your Water Valve is On: Someone in your home may have accidentally turned off the water valve in your home. Make sure that your water valve is on.

If you’ve exhausted all of these at home quick fixes, our professionally trained plumbers at SameDay Heating & Air can help. We can do a thorough investigation of your entire plumbing system, to see if there is a serious issue at large. Our plumbers are determined to pinpoint the problem and implement a solution. For example, if one pipe in your home is leaking, it can actually affect your plumbing system as a whole. Whatever the case may be, our experienced plumbers can take the pressure out of a high pressure situation.
