Having Good Water Pressure In Leaside

July 5, 2011 at 4:00 pm | Category: Water Pressure

There are a number of things around your Leaside home that can really annoy you. One of these involves low water pressure. No one likes having a shower and discovering that the water has reduced to a mere dribble. And it is a waste of time standing waiting for the sink to fill slowly with water. Luckily, you can easily sort out these water pressure problems and ensure you have good water pressure in your home.

If it isn’t the supply from the water authority, then it could be one of the pipes bringing the water from the main supply across your property to your house. If you suspect this, then get in a Leaside plumber to check it out. Unless you are certain of the job it is smarter to have a plumber examine these pipes. it may be that there is dripping or it could mean that the trees are getting too big and there roots are penetrating the water storage. It may be that the piping has aged and they have began to deteriorate. Either way, they will be either causing a blockage, or increasing the friction, and the result will be a lower water pressure. If it is the base of the trees then be sure a contractor is hired to eliminate the roots and prevent this problem in the future.

If you have always had low pressure, then it could be that you have thinner pipes. The tinier the piping the more friction and the less quick the water. If this is the case, then you may decide after talking to a plumber, to replace your pipes. This is not a cheap option, but may be the only one available to you. You’ll find that if your pipes are only a ½ inch in diameter, you are more than likely to have lower pressure than if the pipes were ¾ inch or one inch in diameter. Talk to your plumber, figure out how much water you use daily, and decide on what is the best solution.

It may be a clog as the result of a substance similar to calcium. If this is the case, then have a word with the plumber when they come to clean or replace the pipe and discuss whether it be worth your while to purchase a water softener or other water purifier so that these chemicals aren’t leaving deposits in your pipes, and at the same time you will improve the quality of your drinking water.

And, finally, if there is a problem with just one of your fixtures, such as your shower, then chances are there’s a blockage in that particular fixture rather than in your pipes, in which case you will need to clean or replace the parts so that the water can freely run again.
