Common Reasons of Low Water Pressure Issues

low water pressure

If you have low water pressure in your home, it can be very frustrating to deal with it. Somehow, you can’t seem to shower correctly or do the dishes correctly. Your laundry will take longer to get done, and low water pressure just slows everything down.

It isn’t uncommon for many property owners to ignore plumbing issues, but low pressure can prove to be very difficult to neglect. This is when you need the services of a reliable and experienced plumber to handle the job for you. While there is no shortage of plumbing companies in Sydney, we at SPS Eastern Suburbs have made our mark in this field.

What causes low-pressure problems in plumbing?

While we handle plumbing jobs of every type, we also like to keep our clients well informed about the different types of issues that can plague their plumbing system. Here we take a look at what they are:

  • Sometimes, a faulty water metre could be the cause of very low water pressure in your home. If you have noticed that the water pressure is low in all areas of your home, check the water metre valve. Ensure that it is turned up fully and then check whether there is any improvement in the water pressure.
  • Many homes also have water pressure regulators that can be used to reduce the flow of water. If you have this device installed on your property, check whether it is at the correct setting. In case you are not very confident about whether you are doing this right, you can call in an experienced and licensed plumber to check the setting and increase it if required. It is never a good idea to experiment with high water pressure even though it might seem to increase comfort levels while showering or bathing etc.
  • If you have had any plumbing work done on your property recently, the contractors might not have turned the main valve up all the way. This can cause low water pressure. It is something you should be checking on in case you face a problem.
  • Sedimentation build-up inside the water pipes or rusting and corrosion are other issues that can impact the flow of water on your property.

While some of these issues may be evident, others may not be so. One of the best ways to make sure that you get the problem fixed within the shortest possible time is to call an expert plumber in Sydney.
