Are you suffering from low water pressure, no hot water, or a clogged drain in your shower? Because showers are so necessary to your daily routine, living with a malfunctioning shower can truly affect your peace of mind.
Low Water Pressure
There is nothing like a soothing hot shower after a hard day’s work. It’s often pitiable if the pressure in the shower is not adequate enough to provide you with the level of comfort that you need.
Water pressure within the home can differ based on the location, type and height of the property, and also the type of appliances used and how much water is being used by others. Water pressure may differ at different times of the day. Pressure is normally highеr lаtе аt night whеn vеrу littlе wаtеr iѕ being tаkеn from the main network and most people’s taps are turned оff. In thе mоrning whеn people аrе tаking a bath оr ѕhоwеr, or watering their garden on a hot evening, there is usually a bigger demand for water, which could cause low pressure.
Fixtures, including sinks, faucets, tubs, and showers among others, are all connected to pipes. Pipes are essentially what people think of when they think of plumbing. Proper care and maintenance of fixtures can prevent clogs and leaks in the future.
Clogged Shower Drain
If you have a stubborn clog that you can’t clear yourself, or the entire bathroom is clogged (toilet, sink, shower, and tub), then it is time to call it quits and bring in a professional.
Also, clogged drains and sewer lines can cause water pressure to accumulate in your pipes, which can result in ruptures or leaks.
When your pipes get clogged, drainage of water is quite slow, which could result in leaking, or even worse, serious overflowing from bursts.
You Have No Hot Water
You may run out of water, if the hot water is used for an extended period of time–like long or multiple showers. This is fixed by allowing time to pass, and the water heater to do its thing and heat up some more water. This scenario is normal. It is when no hot water comes out, on the onset of use, that should cause concern. Check your breaker before calling a professional to save yourself from a costly bill to correct a minor (and easily corrected) error.
