A Question from Red Oak: What Causes Low Water Pressure?

Posted on: May 31, 2012

Low water pressure in your Red Oak home can make just about everything from showering to cleaning more difficult. It is frustrating, but it often seems like there is very little you can do about it. In fact, you may be able to improve your water pressure in a variety of ways, but the appropriate technique will depend on the root cause of your problem.

There are several different possible causes for low water pressure. If the problem is limited to certain areas or fixtures in the house, it may very well be because the pipes feeding that area or fixture are too small. Smaller pipes will only allow a smaller amount of water to pass through at once, making it impossible for you to get the force you are after.

Fixing this, of course, means putting in larger pipes, and that may be easier said than done. However, if the problem is on a small scale, you should not have too much trouble or need to pay too much to have a professional complete the job. A problem in a particular fixture can also result from small clogs or backups in the fixture itself, and this is a relatively easy situation to remedy as well.

A low water pressure problem that affects your whole house can result if the main pipes feeding into your house are too small. This could be the case if your house has been added onto since it was built or if you have more people living there now and using more water.

Replacing those incoming pipes is a big job, but it is often the only way to increase your water pressure and make it possible for the system to satisfy the water needs of the house. This is definitely something you will want to have a professional work on, and while it can be costly, it will be well worth it in the end.

Another possible reason that you might have low house-wide water pressure is that you live at the end of the area water system or that you use an improperly located well. If your well is downhill from your home, for instance, you should consider installing a booster pump that can help move the water into your house more efficiently. The same remedy can work if you live on the outskirts of town and at the limit of your town’s water system.

Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

We smelled gas in our fireplace and Brian turned it off for us and explained what needed to be done in a very clear and professional manner. He also pointed out the dripping water in our water heater and corrosion down the side of it and recommended a new water heater. We had him install a new one and are very pleased with the service!

Starting with my initial call and interaction with the Office Manager Andy, the service was outstanding. The onsite team beginning with Matt, the leak detection person and ending with the plumbers (Jonathan and James), the service was excellent. I highly recommend this company for your plumbing needs.
