For most people, a more powerful shower means a more enjoyable shower. A high-pressure shower head gives you an invigorating shower experience.
If your shower head's water flow is weak, low water pressure in your home or an inefficient shower head might be the cause.
Here are some ways to address these issues and improve your shower's performance.
If multiple fixtures in your home suffer from low water pressure, you may have a whole-house water pressure issue. Contact a qualified plumber for assistance with determining the problem and identifying the best solution.
Common problems include a faulty pressure regulator, leaks in the water main, or issues with the main shut-off valve. If your area has low water pressure, the plumber might suggest a water pressure booster. This is a pump system that connects to your water supply and increases low overall water pressure.
The shower head is a good place to start when your other fixtures are performing well.
Mineral deposits and other buildup can decrease shower performance. Try cleaning the shower head nozzles and filter. See our Top 3 Tips for Cleaning Your Shower Head for more information.
If the problem is the shower head itself, look for a replacement that offers powerful performance.
Waterpik® shower heads with OptiFLOW® technology provide more force than other shower heads, even at low water pressures.
Poor shower head performance is often a design issue. A high pressure shower head maximizes the flow of water through the shower head for a powerful spray.
