Why Is My Water Pressure So Low?

There is no denying how annoying it is to turn on the faucet or try to take a shower, only to realize that your water pressure just is not what it should be. There are many potential causes of low water pressure. If you have issues with subpar water pressure, it’s best to contact a professional plumber in Bloomington, IL immediately.

As is the case with most plumbing problems, ignoring your low water pressure could result in more serious related issues. Call our number and get your water pressure back on track. You deserve a quality performance from your plumbing system, as well as your peace of mind.

It Could Be a Utility Issue

In many cases, we are going to be able to fix whatever is causing your low water pressure. If you have low water pressure throughout the entire house, though, it could be the result of a problem with the utility. That is beyond our control.

Ask your neighbors if they are having a similar issue. If so, contact the appropriate department directly. They’ll be able to tell you if there is an issue that could be causing the problem. They should also be able to tell you what’s being done about it.

It Could Be a Water Main Leak

If there isn’t a problem with the public water distribution, or if you notice a big spike in water costs or signs of water leaking around your property, the water main may be damaged. This is a serious problem, and one that could compromise the integrity of your home. Not all water line leaks will result in water pressure dropping, but it is possible.

If this is the case, you need to work with plumbers that will be there promptly to effectively resolve the problem. When it comes to water lines, there is no such thing as a minor leak. Don’t sit on this one.

It Could Be a Localized Leak

What do we mean by a “localized” leak? Well, if water pressure has dropped in only one fixture, or in fixtures located very close to one another, the leak may not be in the main water line. It may be in a pipe supplying those fixtures.

This requires a skilled plumber to pinpoint the location of the leak. You’ll find those plumbers on our staff.
