How to Increase Water Pressure
Featured Pro: Eric Stromer Category: Home Improvement Time: 2:13
ERIC STROMER: Everyone knows how frustrating it is when there’s just a trickle of water coming out of your shower or faucet. Well, there are a couple of simple and inexpensive steps you can take to increase your water pressure. Come on. I’ll show you how.
Now, a lot of times the problem with water pressure is a buildup of rust and mineral deposits behind the shower head or faucet spout. So sometimes it’s as simple as removing the shower head to see what’s in there and then removing the deposits.
One other option to increase the flow of your water pressure in your shower is to take the flow restrictor, which is this device, out of the shower head, and that blasts a full stream and full force of water through the shower head.
Next I’m going to show you a simple trick to flush out your faucets. You start by turning off the water supply to your hot water tank. Now go to one of your sinks. Turn on your hot water. Take off your aerator, because we don’t want to have any mineral deposits get caught in this screen. Go to another sink. Turn on your hot water. Take off your aerator on this sink as well. Now put a dime inside of the aerator and then re-attach it. What that’s going to do is create back pressure.
So watch this. When I turn on the cold water, it’s going to go ahead and shoot water out of that faucet, which is going to clear out all the sediment and mineral deposits in the hot water line, because hot water lines have a tendency to create more mineral deposits. There it is.
Now, when you’ve completed back-washing your faucets, remove all the aerators from the faucets and shower heads and soak them in a solution of calcium, lime and rust remover. Also keep in mind you’re going to want to take your screens out and your flow restrictors and separate those. Just throw everything in the bucket. Then you’ve got half solution and half water. Just let that soak, and the deposits will come off very, very easily.
Well, it’s just that easy. Try these simple solutions to get your water flowing.
