Why Does My Shower Have Low Water Pressure?

Posted on November 1st, 2016 by Jupiter Tequesta

Common Causes:

  • There is mineral buildup. Older homes that are built with galvanized iron pipes may find that they are more prone to mineral deposits over time. When these minerals harden inside of your plumbing pipes, it makes it more difficult for water to flow freely.
  • There is a leak. If you have a plumbing leak, you might find that the pressure in your home is lower. Any damage to your plumbing, big or small, will affect the water pressure in your home.
  • The nozzle is clogged. If the low water pressure is specific to your shower head, there is a good chance that the shower head is clogged. Soak your shower head in vinegar and water over night. If it still seems clogged, you may need to replace it.
