Don’t Settle for Low Water Pressure!

Have low water pressure?

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.

    Under pressure?
  • 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

If ever you are in need of a plumber, look no further than Zeek Plumbing. We had a water leak going from the street to the house hook up. The repair was completed in an efficient and professional manner and the people were a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend and will definitely use them again.

I noticed a small leak in our kitchen ceiling and knew it was the upstairs toilet which was very old. I called a ton of plumbers and left messages. Zeek was the 1st plumber to call me back early Monday morning and advised me on next steps so we could get the new toilet installed and taken care of. The two reps were knowledgeable, friendly, explained the issue, what they found and what they were doing. They were also super sweet to my toddler. Price for install was on par with what they had quoted. Highly recommend and will use again (hopefully not for a leak).

Found our water heater was leaking terribly on a Friday. Called 4 plumbers in the area and NOT one called me back even now 2 weeks later. I finally called Zeeks to see if they service my area. First, a person actually answered right away and was willing to help us right away. Customer Service was impeccable and gave pricing and was at my house ready to install a new hot water heater Saturday morning at 8am!! The 2 guys were friendly, knowledgeable, clean and efficient. Zeeks saved alot of stress as we were leaving for vacation on Monday morning!! Will definitely recommend and will call them first in the future!!

We have a fairly new radiant heat system that was not installed by Zeek. All of a sudden we had no heat on the second floor. Rich and Ryan immediately determined that the pressure tank originally installed was not the correct one, replaced that part and had the system up and running for us. We had another issue a few days later. Rich returned immediately and took care of the problem at no cost to us.We are very happy to have found Zeek (and Rich) and we look forward to working with them in the future!

Very professional very fast and very friendly. Over all amazing service by Bill. He took the time to do the job right n make sure it was working properly without wasting time. And took the time to explain what was causing the problems. Would recommend to anyone who needs a plumber. Extremely satisfied.Update, 2 days later had issues and called them back, with in 24 hrs they came back to resolve the problem. Sent multiple guys to find where the issue was in the system. Located a bad pipe and replaced it. All is flowing good now thankyou so much for working with us to resolve this issue.

We are sooo happy with our experiences with Zeek! We had them out twice - they did a bunch of repairs for us and then when it turned out the problem was deeper than we thought they came back and stuck with it until they figured it out. They were professional, neat, safe and thorough. Huge thanks to Rich for coming out to diagnose the problem and the whole team for hanging in until it was fixed!
