Low Water Pressure IssuesPosted by Syed in Uncategorized, on June 12, 2018
So, you turn on the tap in the washroom and only a little flow of water come out of the shower head. Then, you sigh at the thought of how long it’s going to take just for you to wash your hair. Or, when you open the sink tap and, instead of an active flow of water, a frail flow comes out. At Plumbers Dubai we call this low flow, homeowners call it low water pressure. Luckily, there are ways to solve this problem. It is essential to understand what the Low Water Pressure Issues can be. Some of these causes are:
- Debris in the water
- Pressure regulators
- Low pressure to the house
- Water valves
- Water Leaks
- Mineral deposit build-up
Low Water Pressure Issues
Debris in the Water Plugging the Fixtures
Identifying what is causing the problem is the first step toward properly repairing it. Although, in some cases, you will simply have to troubleshoot the problem by exploring all of the possible causes and making the necessary repairs.
A really simple reason for small flow is stuff in the water. If you have old iron pipes, these plug with rust and rust breaks loose and plugs up aerators, valve, and anywhere there is a restriction in the pipes.
Replacing Pressure Regulators
A regulator is a device for water pressure shaped like a bell. The regulator is usually found below the hose connection in the front of your home, though it may be located in a different area depending upon the construction of your home.
Low Water Pressure From the City
You can check for Low Water Pressure Issues by purchasing a water pressure testing gauge with a hose connection, and screw it on to a hose faucet. Test it with all fixtures in the house off. If the city pressure is not very high, there are two things that we have had some success with.
Turning Your House Main Shut Off Valves
These valves sometimes get unwittingly moved or turned off without the owner knowing it. There is usually the main water valve in a home. If this main water valve is not shut off or if it is not completely turned on, it will affect all of the water flow in the home. Be sure the main water supply valve is properly turned on if you are having a Low Water Pressure Issues. Also, if the valve is built without a full-size passage, it will not supply as much flow as a valve with full-size passage. A plumber can generally tell by having a look at a valve if it does have a full-size portion. Your water heater also should have a main shutoff for the water. If it is restricted or partially off, you might get a low flow for the hot water in the house.
Repairing Water Leaks
Cracks to water pipes service your house can reason water leaks. Water leaks can cause low water pressure because not all of the water is making its way to your faucet. Some of them are leaking between the cracked or damaged pipe. Check your pipes for damage or leaks. A trick to figuring out if you have a leak in the main pipe is to shut off the water valve in your home and mark down the meter reading showing on your water meter. Come a few hours back and read the meter reading of Water supply again. If the meter reading increases, then you have a leak.
