Can Plumbing Repair Fix My Water Pressure?
Posted on: July 28, 2014
There are few issues more annoying for your Largo home than needing plumbing repairs due to poor water pressure. It is extremely frustrating when you turn on your shower only to find that it is only producing a small trickle of water. Luckily, there are things that can be done to get out of this predicament. While calling in a professional for repiping may be your best option, there are ways to see if you can remedy the issue yourself, too.
What Can Cause Low Water Pressure?
There are many possible causes behind a sink that’s being stingy with its water. Your home may be experiencing:
- Dirty aerators. Check the aerator of the appliance in question for debris or mineral deposits. A buildup of these materials can restrict flow in faucets and showerheads.
- Malfunctioning pressure regulators. When pressure regulators break, all the faucets and showers in your house will exhibit lower water pressure. The type of plumbing repairs that this issue calls for are tricky to complete, and, therefore, are usually better handled by calling a Largo professional.
- Faulty water valves. If a water valve in your home was not turned fully back into its “On” position the last time it was handled, the water pressure of all appliances in your residence would be dramatically affected. Turning the valve completely to this position should take care of it.
These are just some possible culprits behind low water pressure that do not require repiping or repair.
How Repiping and Plumbing Repair Can Fix Low Water Pressure
If you’ve tried to fix all the above solutions and your sinks and faucets are still not performing, you may have leaky pipes. Pipes will often begin to leak due to corrosion or cracks. It only makes sense that if less water is making it from your pipes to your faucets, the water pressure will be subpar.
