Why Is My Water Pressure So Low?

Low water pressure can cause a lot of inconvenience for homeowners. When you’re expecting a powerful shower or a fast-filling bathtub, a weak trickle can turn your day upside down.

Yoder Plumbing is here with a breakdown of the causes of low water pressure and how to turn that dribble into a downpour.

Hidden Leaks

Water pipes can develop leaks over time. These hard-to-spot leaks can rob your fixtures of the water pressure you need for your day. Regularly check your home for damp spots, mold, or suspiciously high water bills. If you notice these signs, call Yoder Plumbing to get the problem resolved.

Corroded Pipes 

Old pipes can rust and corrode, shrinking their inner diameter. The resulting narrowness of your pipes can make it hard for water to flow smoothly. The team at Yoder Plumbing can help you replace those aging pipes with fresh, up-to-date ones that will last you for years!

Clogged Pipes

Over time, mineral deposits and debris can accumulate in your pipes, creating blockages that gradually decrease your water pressure if left unaddressed.

At Yoder Plumbing, our solution to clogged pipes is simple: make an appointment with you, answer any questions, and use cutting-edge techniques and technology to clear the clog.

Faulty Pressure Regulator

Your pressure regulator controls the flow of water into your home. When it starts failing, it can either turn your water pressure into a tiny trickle or a painfully powerful downpour. Call on your Yoder Plumbing, who will help you with that regularly so that you have the pressure you want.

High Demand

When everyone in your neighborhood decides to shower, do laundry, and wash dishes simultaneously, it’s like a water race to the finish line. This increased demand can result in lower pressure. Your trusted plumber can help you strategize to use water during off-peak hours.

Municipal Water Supply Issues

Sometimes, the issue stems from your water supplier rather than your pipes. Municipal problems like mainline breaks, maintenance, or droughts can decrease water pressure. Unfortunately, your plumber can’t control the city, but we can help you navigate these issues.

Fixture Problems

Sometimes, it’s not your plumbing; it’s your fixtures. Old, outdated faucets or showerheads can hinder water pressure. Upgrade to newer, more efficient fixtures, and you’ll see the difference.

Low Water Pressure After Repairs

If you’ve recently had plumbing work done and suddenly noticed low water pressure, it’s possible something was connected or re-adjusted incorrectly. Give your plumber a call, and they’ll be sure to fix what others left behind.
