The beauty of a great shower cannot be understanded. It’s refreshing after a long day, or cleansing after a big workout. It can clean the mud off your dog’s fur, wash away your worries, and leave your hair feeling salon-styled. So, when your shower head starts dribbling rather than spraying, it can be cause for an alarm.

To solve the mystery of low water pressure, you need to play the role of detective. Here’s the line-up to get you started.

The Victims

Before you panic, determine if every faucet in your home is experiencing this troubling issue. If the sinks, showers, and hoses connected to your home all have low water pressure, this may point to a larger plumbing issue. However, if it’s merely one faucet that is experiencing the low pressure, this could be the result of any number of minor issues.

The Motives

There could be a few reasons why your home’s water pressure tanked. Some issues are greater than others, and while it shouldn’t be up to you to diagnose the issue, understanding why it could be happening could help you better understand why this is happening.

  1. High Demand: If your home’s plumbing system is expected to cater to multiple faucets in one region at the same time, it could be difficult for the pressure to hit the mark every time. 
  2. Pipe Problems: When pipes get old, clogged, or damaged, your water pressure can be affected. This happens for a variety of reasons. Some pipes struggle in old age, while others simply need to be cleared in order to get the job done. 
  3. Gauge Damage: Your home’s pressure regulator monitors your home’s water pressure level, but if the readings are off or the gauge isn’t working, water responds by becoming too low or too high.
  4. Valve Trouble: Two valves on your home control your water supply. If these are turned into an “closed” position – the handle is perpendicular to the pipe – water isn’t coming into your home, and your plumbing system just simply has less water to supply. 

Mystery Solved

Some low water pressure issues can be solved by replacing an old faucet or adjusting your home’s valves. However, pipe and whole-home plumbing concerns should warrant the help of professionals. A plumbing professional can re-coordinate your home’s high demand issue or fix damaged pipes and valves. If you suspect your home’s low water pressure is a fix beyond your abilities, call an experienced professional immediately to avoid costly mistakes.

This company is terrible. They extra over charge for any service. I had them do the whole plumbing layout for my new business two weeks ago. I needed to do some extra plumbing work, so I asked them and they said it would be over 2k. I called a different company and they only charged me $200 for the same work. I had some issue with the plumbing work they did so called them for checking it and fixing it. It was just cleaning the strainer and it only took 2 min. They charged me almost $200 for that. You can get way better service for cheaper price in other company. Please do not call this place.

Steve McClenny was very knowledgeable and friendly. Actually was able to come earlier than scheduled. He installed a new garbage disposal because our old one had rusted out. He was only here about an hour - very efficient and helpful.
