How does shower pressure vary?
Water pressure varies from home to home, depending on where your water supply is situated. Simplistically speaking, if you live on the top of a hill, your water pressure is likely to be lower than those homes at the bottom of the valley. This is because gravity will slow down the water pumping from the reservoir, up the hill and into your home.
In addition, water pressure can vary from room to room, and even at different times of the day. The 7 am pre-work rush may impact pressure in your area as demand is high.
Different types of shower heads can also result in high and low water pressure. If you’re after a more powerful shower, choose a high pressure shower head which will push the water through in a strong and steady stream.
