Low Water Pressure

Low Water Pressure – What A Pain!

Whether in the home or office, there are few things that can be more frustrating than low water pressure. Low water pressure can be the cause of your washing machine taking more time to function than normal. Your dishwasher may not function at all if you have low water pressure. If you are using water from more than one source at the same time, you may only receive a trickle on both ends.

Luckily, there are ways that you can improve your low water pressure, and Shad’s Plumbing can help!

Why Do I Have Low Water Pressure?

So what in the world may be creating your low water pressure issue? There are several factors that can create this scenario. Here are a few.

Your Pipes

If you have old pipes with a leak or if you have a buildup of rust or sediment, this can easily result in low water pressure. You may be sharing a supply line with too many neighbors which would also create the problem. It is important that you have your water system checked if you believe that you have a problem with low water pressure.

Sir Isaac Newton To Blame!

Well, it may be difficult to blame the late Sir Isaac Newton for much of anything, but remember that he is famous for the legend of discovering gravity when he saw a falling apple while thinking about the forces of nature. Indeed, gravity may be the reason for your low water pressure! For every vertical foot that water must travel to your home or office, the pressure of water drops an average of 1 pound. Imagine the issues that may happen while sending water to the second level of your home or office. What is your home is on a hill? All of these factors can create low water pressure. Not to worry, though, because Shad’s Plumbing is ready to solve your low water pressure issues today!

Water Filters

Using water filters is a highly recommended practice, but can also create issues with low water pressure. If you are using a series of water filters, the incoming pressure must be compensated to allow a proper flow from all areas of your home or office. Shad’s Plumbing can easily assess the flow of water in your home or office and we can make the adjustments necessary to insure that you have no more low water pressure issues.

We called Shads Plumbing to come out to look at some problems we were having. I met Steve and he walked me through some problems that he saw and explained to me in detail how he would fix them. He gave me an estimate of what I wanted done and he was a whole lot cheaper than others that I had called. They came out the next day and fixed all my problems. I was very impressed!!
