Identifying The Cause Of Low Water Pressure
Identifying the cause of low water pressure is easier said than done. Numerous factors contribute to your water flowing at a lesser rate. Very old pipes corrode over the years. That discourages the water flow. A licensed plumbing contractor can evaluate your entire system and give educated, professional recommendations to correct the problem. Every system in your home has a lifespan. Plumbing is no different. Replacing old pipes can improve the water pressure and deliver higher-quality water to your house. Old corroded pipes impede water flow and provide lesser quality water into your home. Old rusty sewer pipes are a much bigger problem. A water filter is excellent, and if it’s time to replace the pipes, it’s worth the investment.
Signs of Reduced Pressure
Does the water dribble out of your bathroom sink? Are you struggling to get wet in the shower? You might have low water pressure. Other factors can contribute to low water flow. If you turn on the dishwasher and laundry and hop in the shower, the water pressure won’t be tremendous. Throw in watering the lawn simultaneously; water pressure probably isn’t the issue. Look further if the water pressure is minimal when none of the other systems is a factor. To have your water system professionally evaluated, call Abend Plumbing and Heating. Abend’s highly trained technicians are well-versed in locating and providing solutions for all your plumbing issues. Clearing clogged pipes can do wonders for water pressure.
Municipal Water Could Factor In
If your water pressure has been consistently low, it may not be your home’s plumbing at fault. Ask a few of your neighbors if they are having water pressure issues. If several neighbors have similar water pressure issues, it may be the municipal water system. Water is in high demand, and in certain areas, municipalities may be unable to keep up with the demand. If the problem seems to apply only to your property, call Abend Plumbing and Heating for a professional evaluation. Abend has state-of-the-art equipment to evaluate all of your plumbing, including sending a camera underground for inspection.
