Having low water pressure can be a real bummer. When you’ve had a long day at work and you want to take a hot shower in the evening, you need to have high water pressure! If your home’s water pressure has been low lately, there ARE some ways to fix this. Check out our tips for improving your home’s water pressure:
- Check your main valve. If you’ve had work done recently on your plumbing, this could be the reason why your water pressure is slow. Sometimes, after a plumber has slowly let the water back into the pipes to ensure everything is running smoothly, the valve gets left in that position. Simply make sure that it’s fully on.
- Check your faucets. Check your outside spigot – is that water pressure fine? If so, it may be time to look into replacing washers or fixtures indoors. This is when it’s time to contact a professional plumber, by the way!
- Check the water meter. Sometimes, it’s as simple as this! Be sure that your water meter is operating at its full strength.
- Check the pressure regulator. Each home has a pressure regulator on its pipes to ensure water isn’t rushing into your home too quickly. If too much pressure is built up, it can harm or blow our fixtures and faucets and possibly pipes. Be sure to check the pressure regulator!
If none of this works, then it’s definitely time to get in touch with a plumber. Having low water pressure is no fun – why endure this when you can easily get the problem fixed?
