3 Easy Ways to Improve the Water Pressure in Your Shower  

improve water pressure

Picture this: After an exhausting day at work or a day of fun in Myrtle Beach, you may go home wanting only to relax and unwind in a nice, hot shower. But to your disappointment, you are greeted with an inadequate trickle or a mediocre drizzle that simply falls short. Just about everyone can relate to this familiar scenario because we’ve all fallen prey to unsatisfying and discouraging water pressure at some point in our lives. Even though lousy water pressure can be frustrating, don’t lose your hope yet. There are some remedies to help correct your low water pressure. Here are three quick and easy fixes for your water pressure problems, straight from the experts at Dependable Service Plumbing:

  • Check for clogs within the circulation: If you have pipes of galvanized steels, then you might want to have them checked out by an experienced plumber. Sometimes, the pipes can corrode inside and reduce the diameter of the pipe, unfortunately resulting in low water pressure. If possible, you may want to replace the galvanized pipes with plastic ones.
  • Purchase a water pressure booster pump:  If you’re looking for quick and more reasonably priced fix, purchasing a water pressure booster pump may be the answer for you. It will effectively increase the overall water pressure within your house at an affordable price.
  • Unscrew the shower head: Sometimes there might be an even simpler solution. Try unscrewing the shower head and throwing out the restrictor. Often, restrictors can reduce the water flow by blocking the hole.

If you are facing water pressure problems and are unsure or undecided on what to do, contact the experts at Dependable Service Plumbing. We’ve got the answers you’re looking for and can help solve even your toughest plumbing problems.

“Dependable Service Plumbing & Air sent a pressure washing company out to clean my entire driveway, when only three small spots were unintentionally put on the corner of my driveway when my neighbor was having a replacement water heater installed. Tommy, the owner of Dependable Service Plumbing & Air, came out to look at my driveway right away, and he had Winston out to clean not only the spots off, but my entire driveway, including my front porch. Winston was very professional, as he explained the difference in concrete between my driveway and my front porch. He also explained the reason for some bad rust stains that were there as a result of metal objects that were mixed into my driveway concrete by my builder. He did an excellent job on everything, and my driveway is now clean enough to have it coated with a light concrete paint (two coats) that I had already contracted out to have done. Caretaker Services Pressure Washing did such a good job of cleaning (about 2,200 lbs. pressure on my driveway & about 400 lbs on my front porch with a household cleaner first) that my coating contractor told me that what is left of my rust stains will all be covered over by the light colored paint. I am very pleased, as he gave me a great education along with a great cleaning job! Also, I will now use Dependable Service Plumbing & Air as my plumber for all my future plumbing needs, as they did a great job for my neighbor!” –-Bill B.
