Slow or Low Pressure: Shower Heads and Faucets

shower head

When you are suffering from poor water pressure perhaps it’s time to clean up your fixtures. Did you know that minerals and debris can lower water pressure?

To maintain proper water flow in your shower or faucet you can remove mineral deposits with this simple tip. First unscrew shower head and faucet screens and soak them in vinegar. The vinegar should break down the deposits quickly ending the low pressure curse. If not, leave overnight then replace the next day. Most likely you won’t need one of those fancy store-bought chemicals.

If this doesn’t get things working you may just want to replace your shower head with a new one. Remember a shower head lasts about 10 years.  Call The Plumbing Pro today at 816-763-8200.
