Shower pressure adjustment

There are two factors that contribute to a great showering experience, water temperature and water pressure. The first one of these is easy to adjust, you simply adjust the controls directly on your shower or taps to reach the desired temperature.

Fixing your shower’s pressure is a little more complicated. Most people buy an adjustable shower head and mess with the pressure by switching it between various modes such as “light mist” or “pressurised stream”. This works fairly well but even the world’s best showerhead can only do so much if the underlying water pressure is wrong.

A lot of people do not even realise that their shower pressure even can be adjusted. If they are having a mediocre shower every day they just mentally shrug and assume that they have no choice. What they do not realise is that an expert plumber can actually change things for the better. Proper water pressure contributes just as much to a great shower as nice, soothing hot water and there is no reason that you should have to settle for anything less.

What can we do?

If you are interested in improving your showering experience, there are various adjustments we can make depending on the situation. The first step is to give us a call and explain what you need so that we can dispatch one of our Shower Pressure Adjustments experts who will diagnose any issues and come up with an appropriate plan and a quote.

Your home’s water pressure is controlled at various points in the plumbing behind the walls. If all that is required is a simple increase in pressure, one of our plumbers can make that adjustment for you quickly and easily. All we will require is a little time and access to the area where the water for your bathroom or home is controlled.

Alternatively, it may be that your current shower simply is not good enough. This can often be the case if you have moved into a flat or house that has a low-quality electric shower installed. The good news is that along with plumbing, heating and drainage, we specialise in the installation of new appliances and we would be more than happy to provide you with a shower that better suits your needs.

If you are not interested in replacing the entire shower, we can often grant you the same result using a combination of methods. For instance, if we replace your shower head with one that comes with more pressure options while also making adjustments to the water pressure in your home, you can have a vastly improved showering experience with the minimum of changes.

There are always plenty of options to consider. For instance, if you have a shower that is connected to your bath then it may be that your low water pressure is due to a problem with your taps not opening fully. Whatever the reason may be, we guarantee you that we can find a way of increasing or decreasing your shower pressure until it reaches the perfect level for you.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
