Low water pressure is something every home has had to deal with at one time or another. It’s not only annoying but can cause a disturbance in your family life and put your entire day behind when you turn on the tap for your morning shower and the water just trickles out. And unless you’re a certified plumber, discovering why the water pressure all of a sudden dropped can only be a mystery. Unfortunately, from time to time it can be the fault of the city or the pumping station near your home, however, in most cases, it’s fixed within a few hours. If they have been recently working on the pipes in your area, rust or gravel could be causing a blockage.
But what if it’s not the city’s fault and you discover your neighbors experience no drop in pressure?
The most common cause of low water pressure is clogged pipes or fixtures. If you find that it is only in one part of the house, say the kitchen tap, then it would be wise to check that fixture and see if it is worn out or the aerator clogged. If you are experiencing low water pressure throughout your house, then there is a deeper issue. Over time, mineral deposits from the water, debris, and rust from old pipes can get trapped in valves and other places causing the water pressure in your home to drop.
