Causes of Low Water Pressure
Reasons for low water pressure in your home can vary depending on the age and style of your plumbing system. Our team understands that each plumbing issue is unique, and we handle you home with the utmost care. Some of the most common causes of low water pressure include:
Sediment Buildup: Mineral and sediment buildup can begin to clog the water spouts of your showerhead over time. In areas with hard water, mineral buildup happens at a much faster rate. If left untreated, that buildup can cause your fixtures to rust and corrode. To clean the buildup, remove the showerhead. Cover the piece in baking soda, then soak in vinegar. The solution will eat away at the buildup and should allow water to flow more freely.
Corroding Pipes: Old pipes can become filled with debris and other waste that was never successfully pushed to the sewer. Pieces of rust from old steel pipes can also create a blockage, slowing or stopping the flow of water to your fixtures. Without preventative maintenance, aging pipes could be the cause of low water pressure.
Faulty Pressure Regulator: The small, bell-shaped piece that connects to the pipes outside of your home is called a pressure regulator. If that regulator is broken, each of your faucets will experience low water pressure. A professional plumber should be hired to replace this piece, as attempting to do the job yourself could create significant damage to your plumbing system.
Clogged Pipe: If the water pressure in your home changes suddenly, a clogged pipe may be the culprit. Our team of professional technicians can check your plumbing to determine if a clog is present and restore the system to normal.
While each low water pressure situation is unique, our team uses the same quality approach at each home. We properly inspect the plumbing system, explain any damage or problems to you and offer the best solution possible to restore your system to its optimal performance level.
Steps to Repair Low Water Pressure
Before the Miranda Plumbing & Air Conditioning team begins any work, we complete a thorough camera inspection of your plumbing system. By using a rod or malleable cable with a high-definition camera attached to the end, we can see the inner workings of your pipes. We’ll be able to determine your pipe material, age of your system, and if buildup or clogs are the reason behind your problem.
