Fixing Water Pressure Problems

Whether your water pressure is too high or too low, it’s a problem. Worse, water pressure problems are often triggered by other, sometimes serious plumbing concerns. If certain parts of your home are having consistent pressure issues, causes could include leaking pipes, corroded pipework or clogs created by lime deposits.

If you have water pressure problems, you should contact professionals to fix them right away. Not only can experts restore the appropriate water pressure, but they’ll also find and fix the underlying cause of the pressure problem. Solving plumbing problems early prevents costly water damage in the future. Whether you’ve located a leak or you just think your water pressure isn’t quite right, give Applewood a call right away. We’ll find your water pressure problem and fix it fast.

Why Do I Have Low Water Pressure?

Low water pressure or water volume occurs for several reasons. Most common, 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 the indoor main water valve.

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. 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. If you’ve opened all the valves and cleaned all individual fixtures and still have a water pressure problem, then you should call in the pros. We can help clear out blockages in your water main line.

Why Do I Have High Water Pressure?

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 slightly depressurize your water as it enters your home, it enters your pipes overly pressurized. That excess pressure can damage your pipes, exacerbate leaks or joint problems, or make using your home’s water uncomfortable.

Usually, fixing high water pressure is a matter of replacing the malfunctioning pressure regulating valve. This is a job best handled by the pros. If you replace your malfunctioning pressure regulating valve and still have high water pressure, you should call us right away. We’ll be able to figure out what’s wrong with your water pressure and fix it.
