Acme Plumbing Tips
Increase shower water pressure
If it is leaking, you need to replace the washer. If the water spray seems erratic, it’s likely mineral build-up. Clean the water outlets with a pin or remove the shower head and soak it in something like CLR.
Quiet a noisy toilet
This is likely due to a restricted water flow or a defective ball cock assembly. Check water flow to ensure there is not blockage. If not, replace your ball cock assembly.
Quiet noisy hot water pipes
Hot water pipes squeak due to the pipe moving in its strap. The friction causes the squeaking. To stop the noise, cushion it!
