When to Replace a Shower Head

Have you been looking for ways to improve your water usage? Are you concerned that your outdated or deteriorating shower head will soon be useless? At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh, we provide high quality residential and commercial plumbing services for local clients in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. We enjoy helping our customers find ways to improve their pipes, fixtures and appliances and want you to have the same quality results with your investments. Here are some of the warning signs that can help you determine when it is time to replace your shower head.

Benefits of Replacing Your Shower Head

A leaky shower head may not seem like such a threat, however a single drip per second can add up to an astounding 8 gallons of water each day. If such an issue is ignored for an entire year, that could amount to a whopping 3,000 gallons. Not only is this wasteful, but it can put additional pressure on your pocketbook as utility rates increase. Thankfully, this problem can be fixed quickly by swapping out your shower head with a new one. You can save even more by choosing a model that offers efficiency benefits. This fast, simple and affordable solution makes it one of the best ways for property owners to lower their monthly expenses while increasing their property value.

How to Find Out if You Need a New Shower Head

If you arent sure if your shower head needs to be replaced, you can conduct this easy test. Grab a five-gallon bucket, preferably one with gallon measurements on the side. Then, use a stopwatch, clock or smartphone to track the time. Put the bucket underneath your shower head and turn it on for 30 seconds. Afterward, check the water in the bucket. If the amount collected is more than one gallon, then you should probably replace your shower head with a more efficient model.

Why Hire a Professional Plumber for Your Shower Head Replacement?

Some homeowners may have the experience and tools required to upgrade their shower head. However, if you are uncomfortable with the procedure, or dont have access to the right equipment, then this task can be overwhelming. Performing the job incorrectly could cause further leaks and may even create water damage or other long-term issues. For best results, consider hiring a qualified plumber with professional training and hands-on experience.
