The consequences of low water pressure at home means a lot of things when it comes to your daily life. Washing your hands, doing laundry or the dishes may take you longer, causing you to delay plans or waste time you could have spent on something more worthwhile. Even taking a shower with low water pressure causes more trouble than just a lack of enjoyment. It might not seem like a huge issue but it all adds up. In order to fix this problem, it is a must to get to the root and find the reasons as to why this may be happening and if you’re in need of plumbing services.

  • This may be the case for low water pressure at your house, especially if some sort of repair has recently been done to your plumbing system. Check to see if the main shut-off valve of your house is fully opened as this may be a possible reason for your low water pressure.

  • Aerator screens are considered important for taps and showerheads. Its main functions, such as filtering dirt and conserving water, are some of the main reasons why aerator screens are widely used. However, they can also accumulate buildup which will contribute to the low water pressure as well.

  • Another possible cause for low water pressure at home is there might be a leakage around your house you are unaware of. If this is the case, then not only do you experience low water pressure, you might also be charged with a costly water bill. Have your plumbing system checked for maintenance if you think you may have a leaky situation in your house.

  • If you are still experiencing low water pressure when you shower or use the tap after trying to fix and clean your aerators, it’s possible your shower heads and tapware may need replacing. If you have used them for many years have them checked by our plumbers to ensure that they are still functioning properly.
