Understanding Your Low Water Pressure Problems
Not sure why your water pressure has suddenly dropped? It may only occur for hot or cold water or impact one or two faucets in your home. Whatever the case, these are some common causes for weak water pressure:
Faucet troubles – If only one sink or shower in your home is suffering from low water pressure, you should check the aerator. It may be time for it to be cleaned or replaced in order to restore water flow. Not sure where or what the aerator is? Call in your local Burlington plumber for assistance.
Bigger problems – If all areas of your home are impacted, you should check the PRV and shut off your valves. Inspect pipes for leaks and signs of water damage. If the pressure drops while using hot water, check the valves of your water heater. If you can’t quite pinpoint the cause, Pitton Plumbing’s experienced plumbers are here to identify the problem and provide the right plumbing solution.
Outer origins – Sometimes the cause of low water pressure is outside of your home and therefore, outside of your control. It can be difficult for the average person to determine if municipal water troubles are the cause, so getting an expert opinion from a plumber in the area, whether Hamilton or elsewhere, is essential. One way to prevent water pressure problems in the first place is to have a pressure tank and pump installed in your home. Getting ahead of issues is one of the best ways to avoid them and keep your home’s plumbing flowing smooth and strong.
