Low Water Pressure

One of the most common shower repair questions we receive involves fixing low water pressure. Everyone has different preferences for water pressure but almost anyone can agree showering under a weak stream can be a frustrating experience. Sometimes repairing shower pressure issues is as simple as cleaning your showerhead, but other times it may require major repairs. Low water pressure may be caused by a problem related to the age of your pipes or other larger issues.

After a thorough inspection, your technician will go over your options in detail and help you choose the solution that works for you.

Clogged Tubs

Over time, hair and other materials accumulate in your plumbing, causing your drain to back up. Many plumbers will suggest snaking a blocked drain, but only Mr. Rooter Plumbing uses innovative HydroScrub® technology to completely clear clogs. Using highly pressured water, HydroScrub offers a long-lasting solution to clogged tubs without resorting to harsh chemicals. Not only does the treatment get rid of blockages, but it also clears away grease and sludge buildup that wire snakes can't get to which is why this is such an effective drain-cleaning service.

Leaking Drains

A leaky bathtub or shower drain can become a real disaster if it’s not fixed properly. If the outlet pipe is clogged, the first plan of attack for a homeowner is often to use chemical cleaners to unclog it. However, most chemical drain cleaners are caustic to metal pipes such as cast iron or galvanized plumbing. These types of metal pipes are found in many homes' drain plumbing either on the inside or outside. When used improperly, the chemicals will deteriorate the cast iron plumbing and galvanized drain pipes.

Instead of these chemical cleaners, sometimes you just need to call in a professional when the water won’t seem to go down. You could have more serious, unseen problems that a professional Mr. Rooter plumber will have the know-how to fix properly. When you’re considering a licensed plumber who is certified by Onondaga County for plumbing leak detection or any plumbing-related project, make sure you contact a contractor who knows the business. Mr. Rooter’s know-how ensures that you do not waste your time and money on fly-by-night contractors, no matter how good their rates may be!

Diverter Valve Problems

A diverter valve is a switch or valve that allows you to choose between taking a shower and a bath. Like much of your plumbing, diverter valves accumulate sediment and can wear with age. If your diverter valve isn't working properly, water can leak below your tub, causing considerable damage to your floors and walls if left untreated. Look for the following symptoms of diverter valve damage:

  • Leaking
  • The poor water pressure coming from your showerhead
  • Difficulty switching back and forth between settings
