Low water is a common plumbing problem that many property owners experience. While common, it should be taken seriously as low water pressure will decrease the efficiency of daily tasks such as washing dishes and watering the lawn. Additionally, if left long enough, low water pressure can result in serious damage to your pipelining system. Our team at SLB Pipe Solutions has the experience and tools necessary to find the root your problem and solve it quickly.
Causes of Low Water Pressure
Low water pressure is a common symptom that can mean many things. It is difficult to diagnose the cause of the problem without a professional inspection, but the following are some of the most common reasons why you may be experiencing low water pressure:
- Corrosion. Corrosion is the deterioration of your pipelines and is most common in aging systems that have seen a lot of use. This deterioration causes weakened areas that are at a higher risk for cracks and leaks. When you have a leak in your pipes, low water pressure is often a symptom as water is not flowing directly through your pipes.
- Clogged pipe. Clogs in your pipelines are a common reason for low water pressure. If you have a clog, it can restrict the water flow while also building up water pressure on the other end. This pressure is dangerous and often causes serious damage such as leaks or bursts.
- Problem with your water valve. If one of your water valves is not open, it may be causing low water pressure.
- Your pressure regulator is off. Many plumbing systems come with a pressure regulator. If this regulator is not working, it could be causing low or high water pressure.
