Potential culprits of low water pressure

#1. Clogs at the water pipes:

As the sediments and minerals that begin coating the inside of your water pipes cause clogging. You can test this quickly by comparing bathroom faucets to the kitchen, or laundry room to outdoor hose faucets. You should be able to determine the problem area quickly so that you can further go for the solution.

#2. Leakage in the Plumbing Pipes:

Whenever plumbing pipes leak there will be automatically the low pressure of water at your shower, faucets. This cause problem to the homeowners.

To determine whether you have a leak, shut off all of the water taps both inside and outside of your home, and then record the meter. Come back a couple of hours later to see whether the meter has changed. If your water usage rises then, there is a good chance you have a leak that needs to be repaired by a plumber.

#3. Check for frozen pipes

If it is in Winter, the cold weather can freeze your pipes, making them more likely to expand and burst.

Check visible pipes for damage. If you find a pipe which is frozen, take a look at our useful video for tips on how to treat them.

#4. Call to know if there are Municipal water supply malfunctions and check with your neighbors’

Sometimes, your problems with water pressure may have nothing to do with your own piping system. It may be caused by a malfunction in your area’s municipal water supply.

Just like your own piping, these systems are subject to leaks, buildups and other problems that can affect the water supply and water pressure. Fortunately, you can call your local municipal water supply company to determine whether the municipal water systems are the issue and whether the problems will be corrected quickly.

Check if your immediate neighbors have the same problem, if possible.

If there is no issue with their supply, the problem is with your internal plumbing. If you live in a block of flats, check with the building maintenance, your local authority, or the managing agent of the building for any known internal issues.
