Why Does My Shower Have Low Water Pressure?

Posted on February 21st, 2016 by Jupiter Tequesta

After a long day at work, you start your normal “get ready for bed” routine.

You eat dinner, prep lunch for the next day, jump in the shower, but then, your water pressure is low.

Frustrated is an understatement when it takes (what feels like) 20 minutes to wash the shampoo out of your hair.

But low water pressure is fairly easy to diagnose, and so is calling a plumber. Here are a few of the most common reasons why people see low water pressure in their bathroom.

There’s A Mineral Buildup.

When minerals harden inside of your plumbing pipes, it makes it more difficult for water to flow freely.

Older homes that are built with galvanized iron pipes may find that they are more prone to mineral deposits over time.

There’s A Leak.

If you have a plumbing leak somewhere in your home, big or small, it will affect the water pressure in your home.

The Nozzle Is Clogged.

Soak your shower head in vinegar and water overnight. If it still seems clogged, you may need to replace it.
