Water Pressure on Shower Head is Low

My water pressure on shower head is low?

Here are 4 solutions you can investigate:
  1. Clean the shower head. Over time, mineral deposits can build up in the shower head and restrict water flow.
    To clean the shower head, remove it from the pipe and soak it in a mixture of equal parts vinegar and water for several hours (tutorial here).
    Then, use a toothbrush to scrub away any remaining deposits and reattach the shower head.

  2. Check the water pressure. Low water pressure can be caused by a number of factors, including clogged pipes or a faulty water pump.
    To check the water pressure, you can use a water pressure gauge, which is available at most hardware stores but you will note the low pressure without this tool.
    If the water pressure is low, you may need to contact a plumber to diagnose and fix the issue.

  3. Replace the shower head. If cleaning the shower head and checking the water pressure do not improve the flow enough, you may need to replace the shower head with a new one (best ones are heare). There are many different types of shower heads available, so you can choose one that best suits your needs. Some shower heads have adjustable settings, allowing you to control the water pressure and flow to your liking.

  4. Install a water pressure booster. If the water pressure in your home is consistently low, you may want to consider installing a water pressure booster. This device increases the water pressure in the pipes, which can improve the flow of water to the shower head. Water pressure boosters are relatively easy to install and can be a cost-effective solution to low water pressure.
