Low water pressure is a common complaint we hear from Florida homeowners. It can be both frustrating and inefficient, causing issues with everything from washing your hands, to washing the dishes and taking a quick shower.
But what is the underlying cause of low water pressure? Below we outline a few of the most common reasons why your water pressure is low…
Common Causes of Low Water Pressure in Florida
- Faulty water meter valve
- Faulty water shutoff valve (perhaps stuff half on)
- Broken pressure regulator
- Leaks in pipes or plumbing system
- Corrosion built up in pipes
- Lime or mineral buildup in pipes, faucets, showerheads, and/or filters
Each of the above can restrict the flow of water, resulting in reduced water pressure throughout your home, or even just in individual rooms or appliances. Reduced water pressure can result in wasted time, and inefficient use of water for daily activities and chores.
In many cases, low water pressure can be readily resolved with cost-effective solutions. Call today and schedule an appointment to have your plumbing system inspected.
