Handling Water Pressure Issues - Macomb County MI - Stadler Plumbing

Diagnosing Water Pressure Issues

 

We’ve all been there. You turn on your shower or sink and you find yourself face to face with a weak stream of water. Despite the faucet being turned all the way up, you’re getting no water pressure! This can be frustrating, but there are ways to explore the situation further. In no time, you’ll be able to make your own diagnosis as far as why this may be happening – it’s pretty simple!

Ease some stress, and check out our tips below.

First off, do some investigating and figure out if the water pressure issue is targeted to one specific area or the whole entire house.

When It’s Affecting The Whole House

In this case, it’s worth checking with other neighbors on the street to see if they have the same issue. It may just be the way it is throughout the community. But you don’t have to settle for less! There are devices you can have installed to boost your water pressure and give you the results you’re looking for. When it comes to your home and family, it will be well worth it.

If you asked around and low water pressure only pertains to you, then you may want to resolve the issue a bit differently. There are valves throughout yo

ur home that specifically control the water pressure you are allowed to receive. A licensed plumber (like the staff at Stadler Plumbing) can adjust this for you, so that you’re back to normal in no time.

Otherwise, you can check the main shut-off valve (it should be opened all the way) or keep an eye out for leaks. A leak can greatly impact your water pressure and it results in a lot of waste, too! Not to mention, valuable belongings could face water damage in a hurry. It’s definitely an issue you’ll want to call in a professional for – and fast! The sooner it’s resolved, the more money, time, and hassle you’ll save in the long run.

When It’s Pinpointed To A Specific Fixture

If this is your situation, the issue may be resolved with something as easy as removing buildup in the faucet. Take the device apart and clean it really well. Some homeowners suggest soaking it in a vinegar/water solution to really get the job done right. If it seems too hopeless and dirty to every work well again, purchase a new part – they’re inexpensive and you’ll be glad you did!

If you’ve tried these steps and they didn’t work, you may be looking at a bigger issue. Clogged pipes can easily slow down water pressure. This is a job that should be left to a professional. Any small mistake can result in a big mess and lots of extra damage to your home. Give your plumber a call and have them check things over, so you can get back to your normal routine.
