Low Water Pressure Causes
There are a few different things that could be behind your inconsistent water flow. They include leaks, clogged pipes, your water shutoff valve, PRV issues, and hot water heater problems. Our technicians know to check these common areas when called for water pressure issues.
Widespread water pressure issues commonly stem from pipeline leaks. Your pipe’s joints (where one pipe connects to another) is the weakest area of your pipeline. Leaks commonly occur, resulting in low water pressure. Check for punctures throughout your home by spotting early signs of water damage. Check behind your counters, appliances, toilet tanks, shower heads, and faucets. If you notice constant gurgling noises and backups from your toilet, that may be where your leak is. If you suspect a problem, give our team a call. Our leak detection equipment can identify water issues anywhere on your property.
Blockages in your pipeline lessen water flow. This causes widespread reduced water pressure. To prevent this, get your pipeline cleaned. If you have a clog, our technicians use trenchless hydro jetting to clear debris, sludge, slime, and waste, from your pipes. Once cleared, you should notice a significant increase in water pressure.
Water Shutoff Valve
Outside of your house near your water mater, your water shutoff valve affects your water pressure. If the valve is nudged or out of place, you may experience reduced water pressure throughout your property. Our technicians check this area to ensure the valve is correctly aligned and operating efficiently.
Your Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) is outside your home where your main water line enters your property. If your PRV is turned down, you’ll experience low water pressure throughout your home. In some cases, your PRV may break and need to be replaced. Our technicians can install a new one quickly, so your water pressure gets back to normal.
Hot Water Heater Problems
If your cold water pressure is normal, but your hot water pressure is off, the problem is due to your hot water heater. The tank can leak, resulting in low water pressure. Each hot water heater contains a hot water shutoff valve. If this valve is accidentally turned off, it affects your hot water. The valve must be fully open to operate, and even if it’s partially closed, your home will experience inadequate pressure. Contact our team to investigate your water heater and determine the cause of your low water pressure.
