Common Shower Problems

Clogged Shower Drains and The Problems that Come With Them

A clogged shower drain should be a simple fix, however, it's a fix that should not be put off, as clogged drains can lead to a host of larger problems, from health, to structural.

  • Strong Odors - Blocked drains lead to stagnant water, wich can result in mold and that ever-pleasant "musty" smell that mold gives off. Even the less toxic molds can give off odors that cause headaches and uncomfortability. 

  • Pests - Stagnant water is an attraction to a variety of pests. Roaches, flies, and mosquitos are just a few of the critters and creatures that will be drawn to any sitting water within the home. 

  • Health Issues - The mold and bacteria that result from stagnant water in clogged drains often exacerbate existing problems in a person’s health such as asthma or COPD, and chronic health issues can develop in otherwise healthy people when those things enter the atmosphere of your home. 

  • Structural Damage - Stagnant water around clogs can cause pipes to leak and break down. The water can soak into the foundation and corners of the home, weakinging the structural integrity of the home, as well as get into the walls and ceilings, causing damage to drywall, insulation, and potentially causing a large mold problem. 

Leaky Pipes and Fixtures

A shower head that drips one drop of water per second will waste 5 gallons of water a day and 2,082 gallons per year. That's your best case scenario. If your leak is in the pipes, you could be looking at a ton of structural damage. The second you become aware of the leak, you'll want to get moving on repairs before the costs balloon.

Low Water Pressure

  • In some cases, especially with a new home purchase, you might discover you have low water pressure throughout the house. This may be the result of a regulator installed to limit the force of water from the municipal supply. If one of these valves exists, it may need to be set to a different setting. 

  • Another reason for low water pressure in the shower is a clogged nozzle. If you can see water coming through some - but not all of the holes on your nozzle, that's a good indicator there may be some mineral build up. Soaking the nozzle in vinegar and brushing it out with an old toothbrush should be sufficient, though some prefer to use this opportunity to upgrade their shower head to a nicer system. 

  • Another potential cause for low water pressure in your shower could be your hot water heater. If you aren't noticing house-wide water pressure issues, pay attention to the water throughout the house on the 'hot' setting specifically. If you notice that you're losing pressure just on the hot setting, that's a good indicator that your water heater needs to be looked over by a plumber.
