4 Reasons Why You Could Have Low Water Pressure

Having low water pressure in your shower, faucets, or even your garden hose can be frustrating! We know many of our customers, whether they have well water or city water, have experienced this once before.

We’ve gathered a list of reasons why you could be experiencing low water pressure in your home.

1) Your faucets or shower head aerator screens might need to be cleaned.

Most modern faucets and shower heads are built with an aerator located at the tip. An aerator is an important component of any faucet or shower head simply because it saves water, filters out debris, and prevents splashing. Mineral deposits in your water can cause these aerators to become dirty and can produce buildup, which reduces your water pressure. You can easily clean your aerator screens by disassembling and begin soaking it in white vinegar for several hours.

2) It might be time to change your shower head.

If you haven’t changed out your shower head in decades or if you’ve installed a low-flow shower head these could be two reasons why you’re experiencing lower water pressure. Our technicians can provide you multiple choices for shower head replacements that include a high-pressure option.

3) You may have a leak somewhere in your home.

If you have a significant leak in your home, it’s likely that you will also experience reduced water pressure AND an increase on your water bill. Water leaks are tricky to locate and often go unnoticed until it causes a larger problem in the home.

4) There could be corrosion inside your pipes.

Over a period of time corrosion and buildup can happen inside the old pipes, especially if they’re galvanized, in your home. Replacing old and corroded pipes can drastically improve your water pressure.
