How to Fix Low Water Pressure In the Shower
Posted on March 2nd, 2017
Low water pressure can be frustrating. Especially when you’re trying to take a shower at the end of a long day, or you’re trying to start your day off fresh, and all that comes out is a weak trickle. Fortunately, there are ways to boost your water pressure at home before giving a professional plumbing technician a call.
How to Fix Low Water Pressure:
Check Your Other Fixtures.
If several fixtures in your home have low water pressure, it may be because you have leaks in your home. Check your toilet for leaks by placing a few drops of food coloring in the back of the tank. If the colored water leaks into the bowl of your toilet (without flushing), you have a leak. Toilet leaks are a common source of low water pressure at home.
Check to See if Your Showerhead Is Clogged.
If your low water pressure is specific to your home’s shower, it may be that your showerhead is clogged. Unscrew the head and soak it in a solution of vinegar and water.
Install a New Showerhead.
If all else fails, install a new showerhead! A replacement showerhead is a quick fix — and it can transform the look and feel of your bathroom.
