Low water pressure can make taking showers, washing dishes, and other routine tasks frustrating, as you work with a weak flow of water. But low water pressure isn’t just something inherent with your home that you have to deal with. Cases of low water pressure each have a cause and a solution. You just need to figure out what is causing the low water pressure and fix the issue. Rooter-Man Plumbers are here to help you every step of the way.
Common Causes of Low Water Pressure
Water Leaks – When a plumbing pipe has a leak, only some of your water will make it to its destination. If you have a water leak, our plumbers can find it with our leak detection service. Water leaks should be repaired promptly because they not only cause poor water pressure, but can also damage your home and increase your water bills.
Pipe Corrosion – Steel and galvanized plumbing pipes can become corroded over time, leaving little room for water to traverse. If this is the case at your home, you may need repiping service to replace these old, damaged pipes.
A Partially Closed Water Shut-Off Valve – Your shut-off valve may have gotten stuck at some point and isn’t open all the way. Make sure it is completely open so that you’ll have full access to your water supply.
Mineral Buildup – As water traverses through your plumbing pipes sometimes it can deposit minerals that build up over time, decreasing the space for water flow. In order to retain full flow, you’ll need to eliminate this buildup.
Whether the cause of your poor water pressure is one of these or something else entirely, you can count on our Tomball plumbers to determine the cause and implement the appropriate solution. Just give Rooter-Man Plumbers a call today!
