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
I had a leak from my upstairs bathroom which was coming from an old 3” copper drain pipe connected to the toilet. Tim from Zeek Plumbing replaced the 3’ section of drain pipe with plastic and braced the new pipe to make sure it remained sloped in the right direction. Tim also reinforced the flooring under the toilet which had weakened over the years, and now the support is very strong. Tim was very professional and most importantly wanted to make sure the job was done right!
Purchased a new natural gas grill and needed it to be hooked up to the gas line. Called Zeek in the morning and they came and hooked it up the same day! They were extremely professional. I would highly recommend Zeek Plumbing and will definitely use them in the future should the need arise.
Had Zeek check out my sump pump. Guys showed up early and were very nice. Very knowledgeable and not pushy about offering services. Would definitely recommend them to others.
I woke up to a pretty big leak in my basement. I called Zeek Plumbing around 8am and they were at my house within 2 hours. Tim did and excellent job and also took the time to explain to me what happened and how to prevent this from occurring again. Very professional company.
Had no heat, they had a crew out within a few hours. Explained everything, issue fixed promptly. Nice & friendly guys and not overly priced. Would definitely recommend and use again if need arises.
We used Zeek a few weeks ago for a clogged pipe. At that time we noticed a leak in our septic pipe in the basement. So we asked them to give us a price to replace the pipe. The price sound reasonable so we set it up for them to come back. Tim, Rj and Rich where here 8:00am sharp and went right to work. We where only without toilets for a few hours. They did a amazing job and where finished by 3 pm. All 3 guys are extremely professional and and very friendly. They work well together and all enjoy what they are doMy wife and I would highly recommend them.

Super Bowl Sunday morning, Zeek Plumbing didn't hesitate to respond when we called them for assistance. Our bathroom backed up and flooded our basement causing us to make an emergency request to them. They were at our home immediately and saved the day!
These guys were fantastic. Friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. They came to fix one problem and wound up fixing three. Price was extremely fair as well. I would recommend Zeke 100%
