Causes of Reduced Water Pressure
There are several common causes of reduced water pressure, and we can solve the problem for you. The highly experienced plumbing repair team at S & B Plumbing, Sugar Land, is ready to go when you decide to have the frustrating issue of reduced water pressured fixed. Here are typical causes of reduced water pressure in your home:
- Value problems. Shut-off valves by the water meter—where the main intake pipe enters your home from the outside—or interior shut-off valves may either be not fully opened or malfunctioning.
- Water pipe problems. Old, corroded and galvanized pipes can cause big problems with blocking water flow. Bad pipes may need to be either unclogged or even replaced if they are too badly deteriorated.
- Bad fixtures. Faucets, aerator screens and shower heads can quickly become blocked up with calcium, corrosion, limestone, sand and other debris. These will need cleaning or replacement for water flow to return to normal.
- Malfunctioning pressure regulator. Not all homes have a pressure regulator, but if yours does and you suspect it is set wrong or broken, call a professional plumber to check it out.
- Rusted pipes. Old pipes are especially susceptible to corrosion, which can reduce water pressure.
- Inferior main water line. Have a qualified plumber check the requirements for the sizing of the main water line.
