Common Causes of Weak Water Pressure

A shower with weak or changing water pressure is not something someone should have to live with. When individuals turn on their showers, they expect two things: consistent water pressure and temperature controls. Problems usually occur because of more significant issues that are happening somewhere in your plumbing system. Reach out to us as soon as you notice a change in your shower’s water so that we can help you avoid calling an emergency plumber NYC.

One of the most common causes of weak and inconsistent water pressure is because of damage to pipes. Broken, cracked, and clogged pipes will prevent water from quickly getting to your shower. A break and crack will leak water into your home, and a clog can eventually burst. We can help you identify the cause of your problem whether it is big or small.

The problem could be as simple as a dirty or clogged showerhead. Both dirt and mineral deposits will make it hard for water to flow smoothly. This issue can be corrected by cleaning the head or replacing it. If you replace the shower part and there is no change, the problem is best left to professional plumbers in NYC.

Other issues include:

  • Broken Water Pressure Reduction Valve
  • Malfunctioning Diverter Valve
  • Limitation of a pressure balancing Valve

You shouldn’t have to live with an inferior shower. We are Manhattan plumbers who know how to fix your water pressure. We are also trusted emergency plumbers in NYC.
