Experiencing Low Water Pressure? We have the solution
There’s nothing worse than trying to wash dishes with a trickle of water or taking a shower when there’s no more than a small stream of water coming out! This “low flow” of water can be the result of several different things including water leaks, inaccurate pressure regulators, broken water valves, debris in the water, and the build-up of mineral deposit water pipes.
For simple problems like replacing an old showerhead or simply cleaning out a filter on a faucet spigot, most homeowners can get the job done with a trip to the hardware store and a couple of handy tools. There are those more complex plumbing issues though, like major leaks and/or blockages, that require the help of a professional plumber.

One of the first things you can do if experiencing low water pressure is to assess all the faucets in your home or office. This can determine whether the problem is specific to one location or all. If it’s only one faucet that has a problem, examine the aerator. Also, check for any leaks that may be coming from the pipes connected to the faucet. If all faucets are affected, run the hot water only to rule out any problems with the water heater. If that’s not the issue, check the main valve to make sure it’s completely open as well as identifying any leaks. In the event that there is a leak, it’s best to call a professional plumbing service.
Low water pressure can be the result of leaking pipes or major blockages
Rust, algae, and mineral build-up are the most common reasons for having clogged pipes. Plastic pipes can disintegrate and rust and gravel can get sucked into pipes providing a blockage that results in low water pressure. Re-piping and replacing old and worn out plumbing pipes may be necessary to solve the problem. In the event that pipes do need to be replaced, it is recommended that you enlist the services of a professional plumber as in most cases a permit is required to get the job completed properly.
