What Causes Low Water Pressure?

After a long, hard day at the office, taking a shower can be so refreshing. However, it may not be as refreshing as you hoped if you have low water pressure. Below are some of the top causes of low water pressure.

 

Water Leaks

Some homeowners think that a leaky faucet is not a big deal. Not only does a leaky faucet waste an astronomical amount of water, it could be the reason for low water pressure. If you spot a leak anywhere in your house, having it fixed by one of our professional plumbers is key.

 

Mineral Deposits

Do you have hard water in your home? If so, mineral deposits are bound to build up on your plumbing fixtures. This puts an extra strain on your plumbing system; resulting in low water pressure. A water softener can correct this issue.

 

Using Plumbing Fixtures During Peak Times Of The Day

Do you showering in the morning? Showering at a peak time of the day could lead to low water pressure. If this is the case for you, consider changing up your routine.
