Why do You Have Low Water Pressure in Your Home

Water is a great asset. It is an indispensable source. Water is an inevitable energy without which many amenities will result in a crunch of water resources. But what if you had to settle with low water pressure in your house for several days in a row? That would be irritating, right? If you are already facing this issue, the following can be the reason behind it.

Clogged Pipes

When water travels through pipes that make the water channel at your home, the water deposits pollutants, dirt, sticky substances, greasy dregs, and so on in your home pipes. Even a small amount of this can cause stubborn blockages in the piped system at your home. Moreover, when the main water supply system, connecting your hindmost exit pipe from your house to the public water system underground the street across your home, gets disjointed, the mineral buildup in the pipe mains leading to your house lands up with debris causing clogged pipes. This averts the water pressure in your home.

Corrosion

The steel and galvanized water system pipes need either no repair or replacement for almost twenty years or less. These piping systems end up with deep corrosion inside the pipes which block the smooth flow of water supply. The natural corrosive shreds or materials form in the pipes which impede the water flow or supply. Repairs and maintenance will not help at all. However, the replacement of all pipes in your home will prove to be beneficial to a great extent. The procedure to replace the pipes will cost profusely; however, once replaced, you don’t need to look after it for the next twenty years, comprising a few times for the rest of your lifetime.

Plumbing Leaks

If you spot a leak in your home’s common plumbing system, turn off all your taps and valve knobs either inside or outside of your house. This way, the water will be controlled and then measure on your water meter. Come back intermittently for a few hours. Then record the detail or scale on your meter. If the meter reading has changed, indicating a rise in water pressure, there is a water leak for sure. Call a professional plumber to fix the leak.

Municipal Water Trail

Many times, the hurdle in the public water system is caused by the same causes of low water pressure at your home. There could be clogged pipes, effluents hindering the water flow, the debris, mineral buildup sediments, corrosion within the pipes leaving semi-solid, solid and greasy wet material, water leaks, public plumbing misses and fails, and so on in the mainline too.
