Plumbers in La Jolla, CA
To ensure your shower works properly, you should from time to time clean it of mineral deposits. Remove the shower head cap and unclog the holes using a large needle or a piece of wire by pushing it through the openings. After that, scrape away any of the deposits inside the cap with a small brush. You could also clean the shower head by soaking it in a bowl filled with liquid de-scaler for about 10 minutes. Most shower heads will start to clog with deposits over time. How fast they become clogged will depend on the water quality where you live.

Troubleshooting Gas Water Heaters
There could be many reasons why your gas water heater is acting up. A step by step check will help you discover the problem. For one, if there isn't enough hot water, your thermostat could be set too low and you may need to increase the temperature, while there could also be sediments in the tank causing disruptions to the water flow. Another possibility is that you have low gas pressure and may consider checking with the utility company. If there is no hot water at all, you should check the pilot light and make sure the gas controls are switched on. Then, have a look at the thermocouple and ensure that it is linked to the gas control unit. If there is water leaking from the heater, check for leaks in the drain-cock, safety valve and examine the tank for any leaks.
