Tips to Prevent Low Water Pressure

March 22, 2022

Follow these steps to help prevent low water pressure in your home.

Maintain Your Drains

If you have a blockage somewhere in your system, your water pressure will often become lowered. The best way to prevent blockages is to take good care of your drains. Be mindful of what you flush or wash down the sink, use drain strainers to stop larger bits of debris from making its way into your plumbing, and never pour fats, oils, or grease down the sink.

Remove Limescale

Limescale is a hard mineral buildup that can clog your faucets and showerheads, making it more difficult for water to flow out freely and leaving you with low water pressure. Fortunately, limescale can usually be removed with plain white vinegar. Using a spray bottle, spritz the affected area with white vinegar and allow it to sit for about an hour. Then wipe the vinegar away using a clean cloth–the limescale should wipe away too.

Fix Leaks as Soon as You Notice Them

Even minor leaks can cause a drop in water pressure because they divert some of your water supply. Leaks generally get worse as time goes on, so never ignore them! Have all leaks repaired as soon as you notice them to prevent them from becoming a bigger problem later.

Regular Plumbing Inspections

A common cause of lowered water pressure is corroded pipes, which you might not even know you have until one of them bursts. Make sure that you have your entire plumbing system inspected annually by a plumber. They will check for corroded pipes and any other issues that are likely to cause low water pressure and other plumbing issues.
