Why Is My Water Pressure So Low?

Some problems are a lot more aggravating than anything else. Or at least, that’s how it seems. Unfortunately, when homeowners start to write off problems that they view as simple aggravations, rather than the serious issues they are, they oftentimes land themselves in hot water. This is the case with low water pressure problems. Let’s put it this way: if your water pressure is subpar, you deserve better—and investigation and prompt action may protect your property, too!

When you think of it that way, it becomes pretty obvious that there is no downside to handling your low water pressure problems ASAP. To do so, just reach out to a Goettl Plumber. Not only can our team handle any plumbing or waterline repairs that you may require, but we can also diagnose the precise problem accurately from the start. That’s an important facet of service, because there are so many different problems that might be the underlying cause here.

Check with Your Neighbors

Have you noticed a sudden drop off in water pressure? A good first step to figuring out what your course of action should be is to check in with your neighbors. If you hear back that multiple houses on the street or in the area have noticed a similar problem, then the “good” news is that it’s probably not specific to your plumbing system. There may be a main water line break somewhere in the vicinity, or even a high demand put on local fire hydrants.

If no one has done so yet, take the initiative to reach out to your local utility company. Chances are that they’ll have the answers you’re looking for, and they may also be able to give you a timeframe as to when you can expect service to return to normal. Even more importantly, look out for any instruction from that utility suggesting a boil notice or other steps to take. Leaks and line breaks can allow pollutants to enter the supply, and some testing may be required.

Check Your Water Meter

The bad news is that there is every possibility that your low water pressure is specific to your home. Take a peek at your water meter, after shutting off your main water valve, and note what you see. Is the meter still climbing? Even though there is no possibility of water being used in the house? Then you’ve got a leak that needs professional repair.

Remember that the fact you cannot see evidence of a leak does not mean you don’t have to worry about it. Even minor leaks are serious business. Water damage can be extremely costly to mitigate, and the threat of mold growth, wood rot, and other issues should definitely have you reaching for the phone immediately.

How’s the Yard?

Now the easy one. Do you have a swamp where once there was nice, dry land in the yard? Arizona isn’t exactly known for its wetlands, is it? You have a leak, it’s already damaging your property, and you need our help right now!

Schedule your plumbing repairs with Goettl Air Conditioning and Plumbing. We do things the right way, not the easy way.

Frank identified the need for new faucets in the master bath and discussed my preferences. The type of faucet being replaced is no longer available (mini wide spread) so he had to do some research to come up with a solution. Had to be ordered, not surprisingly, and we appreciate his conscientious performance.

This was my first service with this company and it was a pleasant one. The technicians were professional and polite and quickly resolved a minor scheduling conflict. Interaction with a sales manager for a quote on needed equipment was equally pleasant.

Signed up for the Sadie membership as a a preventative measure to avoid bigger problems down the line. Had my appointment to check my system today and to my surprise the tech discovered a huge gash in my ductwork! Thankfully so because the ductwork up there is a very tight space which I could never squeeze myself into and would’ve gone unnoticed for who knows how long. Huge thank you to Technician Roy Adame for making the trip out on a Saturday afternoon, going the extra mile to fully inspect the system in a tight space, and fully explaining the possible causes of the damage and the impact it would on the system performance. 🙏🏼🤙🏼🫡👏🏼🙂
