You may first notice problems with your water pressure in the shower, but it can also affect the performance of your appliances and make other activities that require water frustrating. Keep reading to find out more about the potential causes of the water pressure problem in your Arlington home .
- Broken Fixtures: Many water pressure problems are rooted in your plumbing fixtures. For example, shower heads and faucets are commonly clogged with mineral deposits. These obstructions build slowly, but will eventually reduce the noticeable pressure in your bathroom. Pressure problems in one fixture could be related to another broken fixture, too. Be sure to check every fixture in your home for irregularities if you suspect a pressure issue. Routine plumbing inspections will help you to catch early pressure problems, as well.
- Worn Plumbing: Some water pressure problems are created deep inside the sewer line itself. Galvanized metals, for instance, tend to corrode and build-up solid precipitates. Like clogged showerheads, this mineral scale will eventually lead to low water pressure. Thankfully, a professional plumber can correct this issue using hydrojetter technology to clear pipes of pressure-blocking buildup.
- Neighborhood Failure: Not all water pressure problems are related to your home’s plumbing. In fact, some water pressure issues can impact your entire neighborhood. Ask nearby homeowners about their water pressure if you suspect that a city-wide plumbing problem has occurred. You should also contact the local water company for official news releases. Possible causes for these breakdowns include ruptures in the main city line or complications caused by nearby construction. Thankfully, these problems are remedied quickly and at no cost to you.
