Do You Have Low Shower Pressure?
If your shower head is slowing down and you’re not sure why, it could be time to replace it.
The water flow in the pipes leading up to your bathroom sink will tell you a lot about how effectively they’re performing; if deposits like calcium build-up or limescale are blocking them, expect minimal volume when bathing/showering with this faucet turned.
Before you replace the shower head, try a few of these tips and techniques to see if you can improve the shower pressure.
1. Remove the shower head.
2. Examine the shower hose for kinks.
3. Verify that the main shut-off valve is fully open.
4. Drain and flush the water heater
