Our house (10 years old) has two bathrooms upstairs. They
both have showers. I noticed two days ago that both showers
seem to have lost water pressure so there is now only a trickle
of water flowing out of the shower heads. The water flow to the bath
tubs seems to be fine as well as water pressure to the sink faucets.
Anyone have any ideas what to look for or what may be causing this.
Thanks in advance.
Had the same thing happen. Have you disturbed any of the lines, valves,
etc. lately? Yes? No? No matter.
I would bet you a Krispy Kreme that your screens are clogged. Take the
shower head off and look at the screens. Soak in vinegar if there is white
stuff that won't rinse out. While you have the head off, turn on the water
and let it run to blow out the stuff that is already in the line.
You could have had some crud break loose inside your lines, or you could
have a hot water heater that is sluffing off stuff.
Anyway, an easy fix that costs nothing to try.
And, if you got it in your shower, you got it all over the house. Clean the
