Four Signs it may be time for a new shower head
Your shower gets constant daily use especially if you have a large family. Being able to take a relaxing and clean shower is something we take for granted until a problem occurs like faulty plumbing, unreliable water pressure, or even a clogged shower head. Are you thinking of replacing your outdated shower head? Here are four reasons why you should!
Change in Water Pressure
As your shower head gets more and more use a change in water pressure can occur. This could be something as small as the head getting loose which is easily fixed by readjusting it. In other cases a shower head may just be worn from constant use, making it less reliable to control water pressure.
Drip… Drip… Drop
If you’re noticing that your shower head has developed a leak it may be time to consider a new one. In some cases a leak can occur due to a small fix such as a warn-out washer ring which needs to be replaced. However, if the leak keeps occurring it may be time to consider investing in a new faucet.
Older bathrooms may include older shower heads which are not always water efficient. Showering is one of the leading ways we use water in our home. In the U.S. alone, we consume nearly five billion gallons of water daily. Newer shower heads use less water than older models without sacrificing performance. This will help you conserve water while saving money by keeping your water bill down!
The water that flows into your house and your pipes is treated with chemicals and additives that make it safe for consumption. Inside your shower head there is a screen or water restrictor which helps filter these chemicals, additives, and debris out. These screens can get dirty over time causing a buildup of sediment in and around your shower head. If you notice a buildup of sediment in or around your shower head it may be time to replace it!
By simply having a new shower head, or tub/shower fixtures installed, you can give your bathroom a quick but luxurious makeover into the spa retreat of your dreams. Let Rodger’s Plumbing help this become a reality by giving us a call today at (972) 931-1021 or filling out our contact us form!
