You don't realize it until it slows to a trickle. But we rely on water for all kinds of tasks, and until you run into a problem with your water supply and water pressure, you have probably never given it a second thought. In some of the worst cases, some problems can leave you and your home without access to water for a long time. Even if your water is working, you still may experience issues from low water pressure. Low water pressure is when water comes out in a little dribble rather than spraying out at the speed and volume that it normally does. There can be a wide range of issues that can cause this. Read on below to find out more.

Think About What You Need

Reasons you may have low water pressure

When you have low water pressure, it can greatly affect the quality of your house. We use water all the time, all day long, from showing, washing dishes, doing laundry, and the ice machine. We use water almost constantly, so when you have low water pressure, not only can it be very frustrating, it can turn those ordinary tasks into even longer tasks. To fix the water pressure issue, you will need to understand the cause. Read on below as we look at some possible causes for your low water pressure in your home.

The Demand For Water

In some homes, especially if your home is an older home, when you have multiple fixtures on at the same time that all demand water, it can lower your water pressure. This can happen if the older pipes are clogged, or if they're leaking, or if they were made to only handle fewer appliances. With newer updated piping, this issue can be avoided and solved.

Fixtures that are Faulty

Over time the fixtures themselves can become clogged. Showerheads and faucets can clog and slow your water pressure down, sometimes a simple cleaning of the screen or aerator is enough to fix this issue, other times though, the entire fixture may need to be replaced. If you have already tried to clean the screen or aerator, but are still having issues, Contact Us now to schedule an appointment.

The Pressure Regulator

If your whole entire house is suffering from too high or too low water pressure, you may have a broken pressure regulator. These water pressure regulators are designed to help stabilize the water within your home to keep it within a certain range, and when these regulators go bad, then you can either have too high of pressure or too low of water pressure. Too high of water pressure can cause issues with your pipes in the long run leading to cracked or burst pipes. If you're noticing a fluctuation in pressure, give us a call.

Pipes that are Clogged

If your pipes become clogged, this can disrupt your flow of water. These blockages disrupt the normal flow of water into your house causing you to have low water pressure. These pipes will either need to be cleaned or replaced to fix this issue because again, this can turn into a burst pipe, which could cause mold and damage to your home.

Where are you Experiencing Low Water Pressure?

When you are looking for where the issue of your low water pressure stems from, the first thing to note is, what is the scope of the problem? What we are looking for here is how many plumbing fixtures are experiencing a decrease in water pressure. You may find that it is only one fixture, only one room, or your entire house. But knowing what is affected can help diagnose what is going on, and what is causing it.

This can be important information because if only one fixture is suffering from low water pressure, it may be an easy fix related to that one time. But if you have low water pressure throughout your whole home, it may indicate that you have a more serious plumbing problem.

We recommend checking these items to see if they all work normally, or if there is a leak coming from any of them.

  • All toilets to see if they are running, or have leaks.

  • The dishwasher

  • Sink and faucets

  • Showers

  • Bathtubs

  • Washing machines

  • Outdoor faucets and hose hookups

While you go and look at each fixture, turn it on and test both the hot and cold temperatures if applicable. Is the pressure low only when you use hot water? Is it only low when you use cold water? Is it low for both? If you find that you only have low water pressure when you use your hot water. The problem could be your hot water heater.

After you have figured out where you are experiencing low water pressure, that is when you should contact your local, and licensed plumber. If you are experiencing low water pressure throughout your whole house, they will be able to pinpoint the problem and inform you of the best way to get it fixed.

I had Kyle U as my plumbing tech. He did a great job and worked really hard to get to the bottom of things (like roots). He was also polite and honest.

Emanuel came out to inspect why our commode was not flushing properly. After an inspection he describer the options. Since the commode was over 40 years old we picked the option to replace the commode with a new one. He Asked several questions about what we would like and the showed us two options. We picked the one that we liked and he obtained the commode from the ware house and installed it the same afternoon.. He completed the installation and did a great clean up of the area and answered answered all of our questions. I fully recommend Emanuel and 1-800-Plumber of Pearland
