What to Do If Your Water Pressure Is Low

sunny-plumbersWe’ve all been there. You know that there is a problem with something, but it’s not really that bad of a problem. And you really don’t need another headache at this point. So why not just ignore the problem and deal with it later? Well, the answer is usually the same. If you do choose to ignore the problem, you’re going to be dealing with a bigger problem later on. It’s never in your best interest to let it slide.

This is definitely the case with low water pressure in your home. If you have any such concern with your plumbing in Phoenix, AZ, then you absolutely need to let a member of our team know right away.  There are a lot of different reasons why you may experience low water pressure, and you’re always going to want a professional resolving the issue before things get out of hand. So keep the following in mind, and keep our number handy!

It May Be a Problem with the Fixture Itself

If you just have trouble with one particular fixture in your home, then that fixture itself could be to blame. This is something of a best-case scenario, of course, and there is no guarantee that you’ll have such luck—if you can really call it that in this situation. It’s worth considering before you jump to any worst-case scenarios, though.

Inspect the fixture quickly on your own. Make sure that adjustable shower heads aren’t stuck between settings, and that there is no blockage due to something like hard water. You can likely clear this out or soak the fixture in that case. If there’s no obvious sign of trouble, it could still be the fixture, but it’s best to call in a pro at this point.

It May Be a Supply Line Leak

If there is nothing wrong with the fixture that you can find, and if the leak is still localized to a single spot, then chances are that you’re dealing with a problem in a supply line. More specifically, with a leak in a supply line. And if that’s the case, then your problems may just be getting started. Why? Because even “small” leaks cause big problems when they’re given the opportunity.

Consider the fact that damp conditions can lead to problems like wood rot, water staining, and even the growth of biological pollutants. Now consider that all of this can be avoided when you schedule plumbing repairs at the first sign of trouble. The choice is obvious, isn’t it?

The Whole-House Scenario

This is the big one. If you notice that there is a drop in water pressure throughout your entire home, then chances are that you are dealing with a more major issue. This could be a leak in your main water line. It could be a leak in the municipal water line supplying your entire area, in which case your neighbors would likely be affected, too. Ask around, and if the issue is local to your home or there are signs of a main water line break, pick up the phone ASAP!
