What Causes Low Water Pressure?

Low water pressure can make showers frustrating. So what causes low water pressure and how can we fix it at home?

Causes of Low Water Pressure:

Debris – The plumbing pipes in your home are susceptible to mineral buildup. Overtime, even small amounts of sediment can build and cause a blockage.

Corrosion – Steel and galvanized pipes are designed to last for up to 20 years, but the insides can still experience natural corrosion over the years. This corrosion can block waterflow to your home.

Leaks – If there is a leak in your plumbing pipes, there won’t be as much water flowing to your sink and shower head.

If you are experiencing low water pressure at home, and you’re not sure what is the cause of your problem, give our office a call. Our professional plumbing technicians can help you correct your low water pressure and get your plumbing back up and running smoothly.
