How to Increase Water Pressure
No one likes wimpy water pressure. Eric Stromer gives you the trade secret for simple and inexpensive ways you can increase yours.
Step 1: Under Pressure
No one likes wimpy water pressure. Here’s the secret to simple and inexpensive ways you can increase yours. Most often a buildup of rust and mineral deposits can be the culprit, so just remove the shower head and remove the buildup.
Step 2: Go With the Flow
Remove the flow restrictor for a full blast of water.
Step 3: Flush It Out
Then flush out your faucets. First, shut off your water supply, then turn on the hot water, and remove the aerator under the faucet. Go to another sink, repeat the same process, but this time, put a dime inside the aerator and replace it on the faucet.
Step 4: Shooting Range
Turn on the cold water on that sink to create back pressure. You’ll see water shoot out of the first faucet, which is clearing sediment and mineral deposits from the hot water line.
Step 5: Take a Bath
Soak all the removed aerators in a solution of water and calcium, lime and rust remover.
