A Plumbing Service In Naples FL Can Help Address Water Pressure Issues

Does the toilet take a while to fill up, or does the showerhead barely work? Low water pressure can be caused by a variety of plumbing issues. Most of these problems are fairly easy to solve, but the root cause must be found first. Below are some things homeowners can do to fix water pressure issues.

Low Pressure in the Showerhead

If one of the home’s showerheads has low pressure but other fixtures are fine, the showerhead could be clogged with deposits from hard water. A Plumbing Service in Naples FL can replace or clean the shower head quickly and easily, at little cost.

Bathroom Faucets

If a bathroom faucet has low pressure, the plumber may check to see if the aerator is causing an issue. If the aerator is clogged, it must be replaced or cleaned. However, if an aerator change doesn’t solve the problem, it could be that the flex lines, angle stops or the faucet itself is to blame.


A slow-filling toilet is a common problem, and in many cases, replacing a fill valve will solve it. To determine if the fill valve is the cause, the plumber will shut off water to the toilet at the angle stop. Then, the upper portion of the flex line will be disconnected at the toilet before turning the water back on. If the pressure is fine, the fill valve needs to be cleaned or replaced.

Kitchen Faucets

A kitchen faucet has an aerator in most cases, and these can easily be cleaned to solve many low pressure issues. However, if an aerator cleaning does not fix the issue, Workright Plumbing can disconnect flex lines to find out the cause.

Washing Machines

If a home’s washing machine takes a long time to fill, the homeowner or a plumbing service in Naples FL can clean hard water deposits off of supply hoses and screens. Shut off the valve to the machine and disconnect the hoses. Cleaning screens and hoses will greatly improve water flow, but care should be taken to ensure that the screens at both ends of the hoses are cleaned.
