Low water pressure in your house can mean weak showers and waiting forever to fill your soup pot. High water pressure in your house can waste water and damage your plumbing. Unfortunately, water pressure problems are often triggered by other, serious plumbing concerns. If you see consistent pressure issues in certain parts of your home they could be caused by leaking pipes, corrosion or plumbing clogs.

We’ll find and fix your water pressure problem quickly and thoroughly.
Why is My Water Pressure Low?
Low water pressure in your kitchen sink, shower or elsewhere occurs for several reasons. Most commonly, you may simply not have your water intake valves open all the way! When these valves are partially closed, your water has to sacrifice some of its pressure pushing past them to get into your home. Make sure your water intake valves are fully open, especially near the water meter. You should also make sure you have completely opened your indoor main water valve to maximize the flow of water into your home’s plumbing.
If you only experience pressure problems in a single fixture, then the restriction could be within the fixture itself. Directly inspect a problematic fixture for clogs and clean it out thoroughly. Old fixtures may need to be replaced. If you’re experiencing low water pressure in every fixture throughout your house, on the other hand, then something could be restricting flow through the main water line. Call Applewood to inspect and clear out blockages in your water main line.
Why is My Water Pressure Too High?
High water pressure isn’t considered a problem quite as frequently as low water pressure, but it carries its own risks. If you have high water pressure, it’s probably because your pressure regulating valve is malfunctioning. Without that valve to depressurize your water as it enters your home, water flows into your pipes overly pressurized. Water pressure regulator problems can damage your pipes, exacerbate leaks or joint problems, or make using your home’s water uncomfortable.
Usually, fixing high water pressure in your house is a matter of replacing the malfunctioning pressure regulating valve. This can be a complicated job and best handled by the pros. You don’t want your new pressure regulator leaking or improperly regulating your home’s pressure.
