Have you ever had the frustration of turning on your shower to only receive a trickle of water?
Or, perhaps it’s jetting out, but not where you want it to… flooding walls, ceilings and expensive flooring. This is likely caused by calcium and mineral deposits in your water building up inside your shower head over time. Left unchecked, it can cause expensive damage to your surrounding surfaces, and can lead to corrosion in the plumbing itself.
To make sure this problem is corrected, you’ll need to make sure your shower is cleaned regularly, with a vinegar solution, which helps to remove and prevent mineral and calcium deposit build ups. Start this when your shower head is new for best results. If you are already having issues, your shower head likely needs a calcium reducing vinegar bath to soften the deposits, allowing them to break up and wash out of the head.
As far as how to clean your shower, there are two main options. One, find a way to get the head soaking in vinegar, as it is, head high in your shower. This presents obvious challenges! Or, disassemble the shower head and potentially spend hours scouring and reassembling, and hoping you got it right, before you turn the water back on. This will need to be repeated periodically throughout the life of your shower. While it may seem like a hassle, you’ll be glad you did it the next time you want a warm, refreshing shower.
