Cleaning Your Shower Head is a Good Idea
Do you want to know how to get rid of that unsightly white mineral buildup on your showerhead? Midwest Plumbing has a simple solution that you can try.
- Half-fill a plastic sandwich bag with white vinegar and set aside.
- Place the bag over the showerhead, allowing the vinegar to completely submerge the accumulation. Rubber bands or twist ties should be used to secure the bag, and it should be left in place overnight.
- The following day, remove the bag and gently clean the showerhead with a gentle toothbrush to remove any loose deposits that have accumulated over time.
Your showerhead will be restored to its original appearance and functionality.
Showerheads with modest flow rates can help you save water.
Are you concerned about the amount of water used in your home? Installing a low-flow shower head is something to think about. When it comes to household utilities, water is usually the second most expensive, and the shower is one of the most common places where people use water (after the washing machine). Installing a low-flow shower head can save you up to $200 per year on your water costs while also having a good impact on the environment.
Midwest Plumbing’s skilled plumbers can assist you in determining which water-saving or low-flow shower head is most appropriate for your house, as well as perform shower installation and repair services as needed.
Showers are not just useful in the bathroom; they may also be used in other rooms of the shower. Home owners who live near lakes or beaches, as well as those who have pools or hot tubs, are likely to have an outdoor shower installed. Outdoor showers are also popular among homeowners for a variety of other reasons. A garage gym that includes an outdoor shower is a fantastic addition. They are also extremely useful for families with young children or dogs, since a brief rinse in an outdoor shower may save hours of time cleaning up grime and muck tracked inside the house from outside. Gardeners who work hard in the soil appreciate the opportunity to take a refreshing shower outside.
Midwest Plumbing plumbers have the knowledge and experience to assist you in determining the best site for an outdoor shower installation at your house. As with indoor bathroom showers, our skilled plumbers can also fix outdoor shower leaks, recommend water-saving or low-flow shower heads, and unclog outdoor shower drains.

The cost of replacing a shower valve with Midwest Plumbing is not known at this time.
Midwest Plumbing locations charge different prices for replacing a shower mixing valve or a faucet cartridge. Furthermore, Midwest Plumbing, like all professional plumbers, is unable to provide an accurate pricing estimate for a shower repair or any other plumbing problem without first inspecting the plumbing and thoroughly comprehending the situation. It’s possible that there are other problematic components contributing to the problem, or that the cartridge has become trapped in the slot due to corrosion. In order for the cartridge to function effectively, it may be necessary to repair surrounding components at the same time. As a result, Midwest Plumbing will dispatch a plumber to your residence to assess the situation firsthand. After that, the plumber will provide you with a written pricing estimate. If you decide to get the job done, the plumber will start to work straight away on resolving the issue.
What is the best way to keep a shower from becoming clogged?
Hair jams in showers are a common occurrence. If the folks who will be utilizing the shower have long hair, this will be especially true. Placing a hair trap over the shower drain will help to keep hair out of the drain in the future. Using a zip stick or bending a quarter inch hook into the end of a wire coat hanger, remove hair from the shower drain and discard it. Push the hook all the way down into the drain until it stops working. Twist it around and carefully draw the hair balls out of the comb. When the drain is wet, this method works well. Continue the procedure until there is no more hair in the drain. Finally, treat your drain once a month with a safe, bio-based drain care liquid such as Midwest Plumbing Pipe Shield to keep it running smoothly.
Is Midwest Plumbing capable of installing a shower/bath?
Midwest Plumbing plumbers can install or replace some bathtub and shower units, but we do not perform bathroom remodeling projects other than water supply and drain connections, as well as the installation of plumbing fixture installations.

Is it possible to preserve water in the bathroom?
When you conserve water, it means that you use less water. Bathrooms account for a significant portion of total household water consumption. The following are a few simple modifications that can have a significant impact on your water bill: 1. Shower rather than bathe instead of taking a bath. 2. Showers should be kept to a maximum of 10 minutes. 3. When you’re brushing your teeth or shaving at the sink, be sure the water is not left running. 4. Repair dripping sinks, tub/shower drips, and running toilets as soon as possible. Converting your toilet to a dual-flush toilet using a tank rebuild kit from your local hardware or home center is a great way to improve your water conservation efforts.
Shower Repairs are available.
One of the most typical shower repairs is a leaky shower pan, which is caused by water collecting in the pan. In these instances, an overlay is typically undertaken to level the floor and aid in the proper drainage of the water that has collected. Following the completion of the shower repairs, a new fiberglass panel is installed on the shower floor. After that, the borders of the shower repair are blended in to match the existing shower. Shower overlay repairs are very frequent when it comes to fixing damaged shower tiles.
Return bends are common in wall enclosures, and they are located near the top of the system. Shower damage might develop in the top corner as a result of shoving the system into position or shifting the complete unit after it has been installed, both of which are undesirable.
Plumbing holes may need to be relocated or altered from time to time in order to accommodate fixtures. We’ve even worked on shower repairs where a plumber required to relocate the shower head from the left to the right side of the shower.
Shower repairs are also frequently required to repair damage to a shower wall that has been caused by a direct hit from behind. This type of damage is referred regarded as “Reverse Impact” damage, and it is also rather simple to repair.
