Why Is My Water Pressure So Low?


One of the most common plumbing service calls we get is in regards to water pressure—particularly if it’s decreased over the past few months, or decreased suddenly recently. It’s easy to take for granted just how much we depend on running water in our homes, but when there is a problem such as this, naturally it becomes harder to ignore.

Fortunately, no matter where in your home you are experiencing low water pressure, our team is here to help. Simply give us a call today—and while you wait for us to come repair your plumbing system, go ahead and read below to learn about some of the common causes of this fairly common plumbing issue.

Corroded Piping

This problem is most commonly seen with steel or galvanized water piping. Throughout the years, corrosion and mineral buildup can diminish portions of your plumbing. This means that even if there is adequate water pressure, the overall water flow will be reduced.

Shut off Valve Not Open All the Way

Have you had service done to your plumbing recently? If so, your shut off valve may not have been opened all the way when the work was done. It might even be that it somehow got shifted or stuck at some point, and just needs to be opened all the way to solve your water pressure woes.

Pipe Damage

If you have a sudden drop in water pressure, you may have had a pipe burst, or perhaps an accumulating clog has finally blocked off the flow of water. Either way, if you notice this happen then the best thing you can do is shut off your main water supply and call for immediate professional inspection and repairs.

Called Advanced Home Services to schedule a routine furnace cleaning. Stewart did a great job and even tagged all our gas and water line so we would know which lines to shut off in case of an emergency. He was very friendly and helpful. I will be calling these guys for any future plumbing and heating issues that may pop up.

Shannon

When Robert C came for a routine check found a leak under my kitchen sink. He discovered the main source of the problem and had the time to fix it right away before it became worse. He did a fantastic job and went above and beyond what was required. He was very friendly and so helpful and did a fantastic job.
