Why Is My Water Pressure Low?

Dependable Service Since 1926

Of all the modern conveniences we enjoy in our homes, running water is one of the most vital. It is so commonplace that it is easy to forget just how much we depend on running water in our Denver homes. When there is a problem with your access to dependable water indoors, though, your plumbing system suddenly becomes much harder to ignore. If you have a low water pressure problem in your home washing laundry, doing dishes and even taking a shower can go from being convenient to a nuisance in no time. Contact Bell Plumbing and Heating today to learn why your water pressure is low and to have the problem quickly and efficiently resolved.

One possible cause of your water pressure problem is corroded piping. This is most often a problem with steel or galvanized water piping. After years of service corrosion and mineral buildup can reduce the navigable portion of a pipe. This means that even if there is adequate water pressure the flow will be reduced. The result of low flow and low pressure here is the same. You will not have enough water coming out of the pipe for convenient usage.

Before jumping to any worst case scenario conclusions such as extensive pipe replacements, though, remember that there are many other possible causes. It is possible that for some reason the shut-off valve on your main water supply is just not open all the way. They may have been shifted or gotten stuck at some point, and are just waiting to be opened all the way to solve your water pressure conundrum.

The only way to know for sure what is causing low water pressure in your home is to contact a professional Denver plumber. Contact Bell Plumbing and Heating to schedule the services you need to keep your plumbing in good condition and to resolve any problems such as low water pressure or flow. We can help you live more comfortably.
