water and energy efficiency
As any homeowner or renter knows, there are few things worse than the lack of a sufficient shower in the morning. Be it a cold shower or simply low-pressure, a mediocre morning shower can get your entire day off on the wrong foot. In order to solve this problem efficiently, one must find the root cause of their shower woes. Our West Palm Beach FL plumbing technicians at General Plumbing are here to help you determine the reasons for low-pressure.
One of the most common causes of a low-pressure shower may not even have anything to do with your home. It could be due to those around you, or if you’re in an apartment, the other tenants in your building. If you notice that your lack of water pressure only really occurs at a certain time in the morning, this could be due to your neighbors and fellow residents all taking a shower at the same time, rushing to get ready for their 9-5 job. The good news here is that there’s nothing you can do about this, besides rise a little earlier.
Another cause for insufficient water pressure would be mineral deposits. These are fairly common, as minerals can build up in your pipes over time as you use your water, be it in your faucet or showerhead. Thankfully for you, these are fairly simple to take care of. By simply unscrewing your showerhead or faucet and giving and cleaning it out, you can break down the mineral buildup and give yourself a better flow.
As always, however, a low-pressure shower could be indicative of a larger problem looming, such as a leak. If the problem persists, call our West Palm Beach FL plumbing experts, as we are here to service your every plumbing need. Give us a call at 1-866-436-7586 or contact us online today.
Purchasing water is a popular trend these days. From the gym to the grocery store people are carrying bought plastic water bottles. A water filtration system can ease the cost and preserve the quality of water you already pay the city to use in your own home. Your West Palm Beach Florida water filtration plumbing service can install and service water treatment and softeners for your home.
Bottled water is cleaner, healthier and tastes better than tap water. House tap water often contains the taste and odor of chlorine, lead, mercury, agricultural pollutants and often local sediment. These pollutants can come from corroded plumbing systems, decay, landfill run-off or local croplands. Unfiltered house water not only affects your drinking water, but the water you use for laundry, washing your hands, and washing off in the shower. What if you could have that same clean, healthy, tasty water without having to go to the store or recycle bottles after use?
General Plumbing, your local West Palm Beach FL plumbing service, can provide a professionally installed home water filtration system. Our water filter and water softener systems will guarantee purified water throughout your home. From drinking water to faucet, shower, and laundry water; your water will be clean and healthy.
General Plumbing will also check the water for hardness, iron and PH levels. Treating your water efficiently is just as important as having clean water on hand. Our most valuable resource, water, should be treated as such and your West Palm Beach plumber is here with expertise on local water conditions and how to treat them.

Changing up your routine water practices in small ways can greatly contribute to water conservation in your home. These tips from your West Palm Beach FL plumber can also significantly reduce your monthly water costs.
Cutting down on time spent in the shower or bath by a few minutes every day can cut water consumption greatly. See what you are able to cut out of your shower routine that can help you get done more quickly.
Turn the faucet on only when you need to rinse your toothbrush or clean your razor blades when brushing your teeth or shaving.
Make sure to fill your dish washer and washing machine to capacity before running a load. Cutting down on the number of loads you run will help conserve water and energy, cutting down on your monthly bill.
Check your home for leaky faucets, running toilets, and hoses or leaking spigots outside. Consistent running or dripping water can add up quickly and exponentially.
Pay attention to where your sprinkler heads spray water. Out of alignment spray heads can waste water on the cement instead of watering the grass for which it was installed.
