Several factors could cause low water pressure.
When you got back from a hot morning spent on Pine Island yesterday, you hopped into a cold shower to cool off. That’s when you noticed that your water pressure seemed lower than normal. You fiddle with the faucet to make sure you had it turned all the way up, but that didn’t help.
“Low water pressure makes simple daily activities, such as showering or washing your dishes, frustrating and time consuming, but finding the cause can be the most irksome aspect of this common plumbing problem,” Angie’s List says.
Angie’s List points out four “usual suspects”: debris and mineral buildup in pipes, corrosion buildup inside piping, plumbing leaks, and a glitch in the municipal or county water supply.
The easiest thing to check is your water supplier. Call the water department and report that you have a problem. They should be able to tell you if it’s their problem or if its a problem with your house’s plumbing system.
The second easiest item to check is for a leak. If it’s a leak from one of the lines that supplies your entire house, then you’re going to have low water pressure in all rooms, not just in your shower.
If the water pressure is low in just one outlet, then you likely have a leak that’s close to that outlet or a clog or partial obstruction caused by dirt, debris or corrosion.
If you’re unable to figure out the reason for the low pressure, or you have found out that the problem is best suited to a professional’s skills, then it’s time to call the trusted plumbers at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
