Low water pressure problems can be a symptom of other issues within a plumbing system. Sometimes a blockage somewhere in the water line can impede the flow of water. Other times a breakage can cause water loss and subsequent lower pressure. Still other times, mineral build up can cause a continual decrease in water flow over time. All of these issues require the attention of a professional plumber, such as our team at Flow-Pro.
Blockage - A blockage at the faucet can usually be fixed by disassembling the fixture and flushing the line. However, the cause of a blockage can be tricky to determine, because for clean water sources that usually means there had to be a breach in the integrity of the pipe. For example, a hairline crack in the water main could let sediment in, which eventually gets caught and causes low water pressure.
Breakage - When you call our team for low water pressure issues, we’ll likely want to examine your system for a breakage, even if a blockage is found and fixed. Breakages in the pipe lines cause leaks that eventually equate to low water pressure overall. And even a small break in the pipeline can cause sediment to enter and contaminate the water supply. If a breakage is found, our Flow-Pro team can offer both excavation and trenchless solutions to repair the problem, depending upon the issue.
Build up - Over time, mineral build up can cause a hindrance in water flow. Minerals within the water supply can adhere to pipe walls and accumulate over the years. In these cases, we usually recommend a complete hydro jetting of the plumbing system to restore the water flow and protect the pipes from long term damage.
