Weak windshield washer

It seems that my 2007 windshield washer is real weak. Any ideas? I checked for leaks and cracks but did not find any. Thanks

Take a look at the pump. It may be wearing and is no longer capable of providing sufficient pressure.

I agree with Larry, check the nozzles but I'd blow them out with a compressor.
