REASONS FOR LOW WATER PRESSURE

As you gear up to contact our Clermont plumbers, there are multiple places you can check for low water pressure. First of all, run both cold and hot water from all faucets, tubs, and showers. This will help you determine if the water pressure is only low in one location. Low water pressure in one location could mean that the pipe is clogged and needs to be professionally cleaned, while low pressure in multiple locations could indicate a larger issue.

Upon checking each location, we recommend checking the PRV (pressure reducing valve) to see if it was adjusted to low pressure. If the PRV seems normal, check your home’s water shut-off valve to see if it has been closed slightly.

Check these areas for leaks:

Check the toilet in each bathroom for leakage around the base.

Check all the faucets for leaks.

Check the basement for dripping water or pools of water.

Check the ground outside your home – if normally dry soil is wet, you may have a leak.

Check your water service meter – do a test to see if you have a leak.

If you can’t find the leak, but still have low water pressure, call our plumber in Clermont.

WHAT CAUSES WATER PRESSURE TO DROP IN ONE FAUCET

When water pressure drops in just one faucet in the home, the culprit is likely one of the following:

  • Water Valves Are Closed: Look under the sink for the hot and cold water valves. Make sure they are open completely.
  • Water Supply Line Is Pinched: While you are checking the water valves, also be sure to check for a kink or pinch of some kind in the water supply hoses.
  • Blocked Aerator: The small holes can become blocked with sediment. You can unscrew the aerator to check.
  • Pipes are Clogged: While it is more common for the drain pipes to clog, the water supply pipes can be prone to buildup of minerals and sediment.

WHY IS MY WATER PRESSURE SO HIGH?

High water pressure in the home can be the result of a home built in a low lying area, municipal water kept high for local reasons, or water heating and expanding. Home plumbing is designed to handle pressure up to 80 psi. If your water pressure is higher, consider contacting a plumber.
