Don’t Make Low Water Pressure a High Pressure Situation
Posted on July 15th, 2014
Taking a long shower after a hot summer’s day can be really refreshing. If you have low water pressure, taking a shower won’t be as satisfying as you hoped. Below are a few quick tips that will put the pressure back into your pipes.
Fix Your Faucet: Mineral deposits accumulate on faucets and aerator screens from hard water. Remove the fixtures and replace the clogged screen. You can also soak aerator screens in white vinegar overnight for a thorough cleaning.
A New Shower Head: Installing a new shower head is an easy quick fix to improve water pressure. Luckily, shower heads are inexpensive and can be purchased from your local hardware store.
Turn the Water Valve On: It is possible that someone in your home may have turned the water valve off. It is important to make sure that your water valve is on when you are testing water pressure.
