How to Troubleshoot Low Water Pressure

Water QualityWhen it comes to having hot or cold water in our home, most of us simply don’t think about it. We take for granted having enough water that’s the right temperature or has the ideal water pressure until it’s gone. If the pressure of your water isn’t as strong as it once was, you may have a problem. Knowing ways to help you troubleshoot low water pressure can come in handy for many homeowners.

What Rooms have Low Pressure?

When it comes to diagnosing this problem and where it may stem from, you may want to determine which areas of the home have low pressure. Is it the only the bathroom or the kitchen?

Is there low pressure in the sink or just when you’re in the shower? Be sure to be able to answer these questions before you try to determine the cause.

Check the Pressure Reducing Valve

Once you’ve located the areas that have the low pressure, you will want to check the pressure valve. This will allow you to set it to a higher amount if it’s too low.

This component of your plumbing is a part that is shaped like a bell. Be sure to check the screw on the top of this part and adjust it necessary.

You will need to turn it clockwise to increase the amount of water pressure.
