Dealing With Low Water Pressure: Tips From the Plumbing Experts
If the water in your home seems to slowly creep out of faucets, showerheads, and other plumbing appliances with no pressure, there’s likely an underlying issue that needs to be resolved as soon as possible. While it’s not always easy to pinpoint the root of low water pressure, there are fortunately ways you can check your plumbing system on your own to determine the cause. There are often DIY solutions to get your water pressure back to a normal level, but our plumbing experts at Campbell & Company are here to help when a professional solution is needed.
Low water pressure is not only frustrating, but it can also indicate a larger plumbing problem. Some of the most common causes of low water pressure include:
- Mineral deposit buildups: Water is chock-full of various minerals and other debris, and this can build up in your pipes, blocking your water from properly flowing.
- Water leaks: If water is leaking through cracks or holes in your pipes or plumbing appliances, it will negatively impact how well your water flows.
- Shut-off valve issues: Ensure your main shut-off valve is fully open, otherwise you might have to contend with poor water pressure.
If you’re trying to improve your water pressure, there are a few DIY solutions that you can attempt. Taking the necessary precautions before completing each task is still important so that no appliances or fixtures are damaged, and the problem is accurately resolved.
To fix low water pressure problems, try the following:
- Clear the clogs in your pipes with a drain snake
- Loosen mineral deposits with white vinegar
- Seal any visible cracks or leaks in your plumbing pipes or appliances
