One of the main issues that we face at home is low water pressure. I am a plumber from Toronto. I have a lot of experience in resolving the same. If your home or if only parts of your house have low pressure then there is probably a constriction in your pipes or valves. The most common cause of low water pressure in a home is older steel pipes that have become clogged with lime deposits that strangle the flow of water. to solve this problem, you usually need to have a plumber re-pipe your home. If the problem seems to be at a single faucet or shower head, check for a flow restriction, clogged aerator, dislodged washer, or partially closed supply stop valve. If a faucet has an aerator, check that first and remove it and clean it out, then replace it. If you’re dealing with a sink faucet, check the supply valves underneath it and turn them counterclockwise as far as they will go to open them entirely. If they’re already wide open, close them, remove the supply tube, and check to make sure a rubber inside the connection hasn’t become dislodged. Then replace the tube and turn the water all of the ways on again. If your home is the only one with low pressure, you need to investigate your home’s water supply system pressure. Thank you.
