If you’re stuck with low water pressure, you’re probably dealing with a scale accumulation. Odds are a water pressure issue with the showerhead isn’t a major plumbing issue. If the fix doesn’t work, then you want to get it checked, but until then, try these steps.

  • Turn off the water
  • Unscrew the showerhead
  • Remove the spray plate
  • Soak in white vinegar or some other descaling solution
  • Reattach the plate

Many household problems don’t come from larger plumbing issues. While it’s always a possibility, sometimes there are easy answers and easy hacks to get through it. A low-pressure showerhead is usually one of the easier problems to fix.
