How to Increase Shower Head Pressure

Are you having issues with your shower head pressure?  Like many things in our homes, your shower head needs some TLC in order to work properly and optimally.  Check out this Fix It in 15:00 to hear what Lou recommends for this problem.

Here are some easy steps you can take to figure out how to increase shower head pressure:

  • Remove the showerhead and inspect it for calcium or lime build-up (this is most likely the issue)
  • Either purchase a calcium and lime cleaner, like Lime-A-Way or CLR, or just some plain old vinegar
  • Pour the cleaner into a bowl
  • Dip the showerhead in the bowl and let it soak for about an hour
  • Scrub all the calcium and lime build-up away with an old toothbrush
  • Rinse off the showerhead with clean water

Now the water should flow perfectly!
