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.

Water Re-Piping

If your pipes have seen better days, you may need some help from a professional plumber. If you live in Macomb, Oakland, or St. Clair County, Stadler Plumbing is the place to turn for all of your plumbing needs! Our staff is trained and certified in every service we perform, so you know you are getting reliable services, no matter what.

One need we see a lot is for water re-piping. Learn more about this service below!

What Is Water Re-Piping?

Pipes break down over time, causing a lot of issues for the homeowner. Low water pressure, rusty-colored water, inconsistency with water temperatures, and leaks are all signs that something is amiss. If this is the case for you, re-piping may be necessary. This means the old pipes are simply replaced with newer and more durable pipes, so that water problems are no longer something you have to stress about.

If you notice any of these problems in your home, call in a plumber right away! They will let you know whether or not re-piping is the solution for you.

Don’t Put It Off!

There is no doubt that calling your plumber sooner, rather than later, will save you loads of stress and hassle when it comes to your pipes. If leaks have already occurred, then you are definitely in need of repair, but we encourage our customers to take action before water starts seeping out. If you notice any sort of issue with your water, call a plumber now, so you can save yourself a big mess later on.
