So you turn on the shower and only a sad, little stream of water drizzles out of the shower head. Looks like it is going to take a lot of time and effort to wash your hair again. You can’t remember the last time you had a decent shower…
If you have low water pressure in your home, don’t suffer through another disappointing shower which leaves you more aggravated than relaxed!
Zeek Plumbing knows how to solve your pressure problem. We can quickly identify the cause and implement the best solution.
Low water pressure may be due to a number of things, including:
Mineral deposit build-up – Over time, pipes may accumulate mineral deposit build-up. This is a common problem with faucets and shower heads which results in lower pressure. Try cleaning the shower head nozzle to see if this resolves the issue.
Debris in the water – If your home has old, iron pipes that rust, the rust may break loose, causing a clog or restriction in the pipes. Also, depending on the season, there may be a certain amount of algae in the water that could accumulate to problematic amounts. Another possible hindrance to your water pressure could be due to the plastic pipe inside the water heater. Sometimes this pipe disintegrates and the pieces of plastic plug fixtures.
Water Leaks – Check your pipes for damage or leaks. Leaks may cause low water pressure since not all of the water is flowing to your faucet. Water is being lost as it is leaking through the broken pipe. A good way to determine if you have a leak is to shut off the water valve in your home and record the meter reading showing on the water meter. After two hours read the water meter again. If the meter reading is greater than the initial reading, you have a leak.
Pressure Reducing Valves – A Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) is a water device shaped like a bell and is often found after the water meter and before the water heater. It is possible that your PRV setting is too low.
If none of the above are the reason for your low water pressure, you may need to consider a booster pump, or constant pressure system. These types of pumps boost water pressure and maintain a steady pressure even when there is a high demand. Consult with the plumbers at Zeek Plumbing today to determine how to best remedy a most annoying household problems.
5-STAR GOOGLE REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS
Big ups to Zeek Plumbing. Just had a terrific first class experience with one of Zeek’s highly knowledgeable and professional Tech’s Tim. I Was having issues with my hot water heater lighting. Tim quickly identified the problem and swiftly made the repairs, and all this on a late Saturday afternoon none the less. Other highly rated plumbing companies that advertise emergency 24 hour service wouldn’t even give me a call back, I would like to thank them for not returning my calls and sending my business to Zeek. I will be calling them for all future needs, Thanks!
Great service. Will do business in the future.
We called Zeek Plumbing in a crisis. Within hours, they came to assess the situation and began to repair the problems. Rick and his team are professional, clean and efficient . We highly recommend Zeek plumbing and would definitely use them again in the future!!
Tim & Joe provided excellent service for our plumbing needs. They installed a gas line and our new toilet to perfection. Tim told us he treats each job as if its his own home - and how true he is. I would highly recommend ZEEK they are true professionals and know the plumbing trade. Steve in the office was well informed and provided information on our plumbing job...THANKS
Zeek Plumbing was wonderful to work with..I was given an appointment right away and the men showed up right on time and quickly figured out my plumbing issue and were able to finish it quickly and neatly! I will be calling Zeek back and refer them to my friends and neighbors
I called Zeek plumbing because I had a drain pipe that froze for the second time in a year, causing my washer to overflow everywhere. They assured me they would get there as soon as possible and would take care of the problem. They didn’t lie! Within 2 hours of their arrival, they located the pipe and moved it so that it wouldn’t freeze again. They also called me back on a weekend to let me know they got my message and would schedule an appointment time first thing on a Monday when they were back in the office. Very communicative! I would definitely use Zeek plumbing again!
Very happy with the work performed. Would highly recommend Zeek Plumbing.
Tim did a good job fixing our small leak in the basement. He was professional, explained the process of the repair, and used a drop cloth! I particularly appreciate the company's followup; they called when they said they would and put us on the schedule right away even though our repair was small. They also explained pricing on the phone, which ended up exactly as explained. I would definitely recommend them.

Zeek plumbing replaced the hot water heater in my new home. They went above and beyond. I would definitely recommend them to my friends.
Zeek Plumbing really helped our family out in a time crunch situation. We woke up one morning to no hot water. We are a family of 5 and in the middle of the summer, showers are a must! We called a couple places, including the big home improvement chains and another local place. Zeek's guys made a point to ask when I would be available to come out - they came the same day I called. Once there, they tested the hot water heater and explained to me what was wrong, and was able to answer my questions in regard to the internet research I had done while I had waited. They then quoted us on a great quality replacement with up to code fittings, which our old one did not have. We scheduled the replacement and they were in and out in no time. I cannot say enough about how professional and competitively priced they were. I am now waiting to get the green light from my husband to start a re-do on our bathroom, because I know FOR SURE I will be using ZEEK Plumbing soup to nuts!
We are so happy we ended up using Zeek Plumbing to run our new gas lines to our house and we are very pleased with how everything turned out. They worked with us on pricing, came exactly when they said they would, took exactly the amount of time they said they would, even did extra for us and were extremely professional in our home. They actually helped us afterwards with coming back and getting the gas working. We were nervous about picking a good and affordable plumber but were very happy with our decision and will definitely use them for everything we need in the future!
