Your shower-head is the most relaxing part of your shower, the pressure, the settings and the temperature of the water are all things that help to make your shower experience relaxing and enjoyable. A hot shower in this chilly winter is a necessity, whereas a cold water shower in summers is immensely refreshing. But what if your shower-head starts giving you trouble? Here are some tips from our plumbers, that suggest that you may need to replace your shower-head:
1) Water Pressure Issues
If your shower-head used to work perfectly until recently, and you now are noticing that you have lost water pressure, it may be time to replace your shower-head Over the years, shower-heads can wear down, and this can results in water pressure fluctuations. They can fail to pump the same amount of water at the same pressure after a while, and replacement may be what is needed.
2) Too Much Sediment Build-up
Edmonton has very hard water from the main source. If you don’t have a water softener system you could have recurring problems of sediment build-up in your plumbing system, including your shower-heads. You will see whitish or greyish layers forming on the screen inside the shower-head or on the inner rim of the shower-head. Although this build can be cleaned the consistent build up could lead to damaging other components of your shower-head. Regular shower-head replacement could be something you have to invest in.
3) Constantly Leaking
Do you have the problem of a leaky shower-head that just won’t stop? Did you change the washer inside the shower-head and unclog the holes, and the leaks still persist? If yes, then replacing the shower-head could be the only way out to get rid of the annoying leaks. The wearing down of the shower-head can result in a faulty mechanism. The leak may be present in the shower arm, the shower-head itself, or the shower hose. It’s better to call our plumbers instead of wasting water every day.
4) Old Mechanism
As your shower-head ages components inside can become old and can lead to problems. In addition to this the style of your shower-head can become outdated and not match the look of the rest of your bathroom. Older models also tend to consume a lot of water and can result in a waste of water. Replace them with newer low-flow and energy-efficient models so that you can get done with your shower-sessions without wasting too much water.
