Posted by in , on December 4, 2021

Are the showers at your home weak and your washing machines and dishwasher is taking too long to fill up? You may be facing low water pressure. You wonder why the water pressure is low even though your pipes are new. There can be a number of reasons why your home water pressure is low. But you can solve this issue by yourself if you carefully use some tips that our expert plumbers are sharing with you in this post.

This is the most common plumbing problem and it can be easily solved by putting in some effort and money. But first of all, you need to find out the water pressure of your home and if your water pressure is lower than normal. For this, you will have to buy a pressure gauge and simply note the water pressure by hooking up the gauge to the outside water spigot. Normally 45 to 55 psi is ideal but if your house water pressure is lower than this then you need to increase it. A very easy and quick way to increase your water pressure is to adjust the pressure adjusting valve on the main water supply pipe.

In order to raise the pressure, loosen the bolt’s nut and turn the bolt clockwise. With the help of a pressure gauge, note the water pressure and tighten the lock nut back once you reach the ideal water pressure which is 50-55 psi. It can also be the case that there is a problem with your showerhead or some taps.

To determine the real issue you need to measure the water pressure of the whole house and see if the water pressure is good in other areas like the kitchen and other bathrooms, then the problem is with your showerhead.
