One of the issues that we deal with is when you have low water pressure. We understand that this can be very frustrating since it can slow the cycles of the machines and the appliances in your home which also slows you down. We don’t want that to happen because we know that you are a very busy person.

This lack of water pressure can be caused by:

● Supply pressure from the mains
● Size of the pipes
● Restrictions
● Leaks or bursts in system allowing water to escape
● Height and distance
● Hot water units
● Flow restrictors
● Cross connection between hot and cold pipes
● Faulty pressure reduction valves
● Damaged valves

It can be either of these or the combination of these causes. Let me elaborate.

When it comes to incoming pressure or under the circumstances that the lack in water pressure is caused by the supply of pressure from the mains, a pressure and volume test at the incoming water source will tell us what the available volume to the property is.

Then, the solution to this kind of problem and cause is to increase the pressure by pumping up the delivery pressures. To do this, we create a water storage tank and pump system that guarantees a given pressure to the system or a Pressure reduction valve at the water meter may have failed and needs changing.

Next are the sizes of the pipes. In this case, all we have to do is to upgrade the pipe size or upgrade the pressure.

Then another case would be when the water pressure is lost due to restrictions in the line, kinks, tight valves, objects in the pipe, and the distance which is causing the resistance in the water system. The only solution to this kind of problem would be to locate and remove the restrictions.

Another case would be when there are leaks or bursts in the water system that causes the lack of pressure. This is because of the water that escaped from the system which then lowers the volume and consequently weakens the pressure.

After the leaks, there are some cases wherein it’s the height that causes the lack in water pressure. This is because the concept we all know about which is gravity. The higher the height is, the lower the pressure will be. One solution would be pumping; another solution would be to make up a tank which will stand as a storage tank on top of the roof.

And lastly, the hot water units. Some hot water units tend to restrict the flow of water, they do this to allow more time for the water to stay in contact with the heat source. The only solution to this problem would be a mains pressure hot water.

These are just some low water pressure issues, causes, and their solutions. If you do need our help, please don’t hesitate to call us and we will be at your doorstep in no time.
