There are many issues that could be causing low water pressure, but there are a few that are much more commonly seen in homes across the Chicagoland area.
Common Pressure Problem Causes:
- Hard Water and Mineral Deposits: Everyone’s water, whether hard or not, has minerals floating through it. As the water passes through the pipes in the home, it is not uncommon for it to get stuck and begin to buildup. This creates a barrier for the water passing through to overcome. By the time the water reaches its target faucet, the pressure behind it will have been lost.
- Pressure Regulator Failure: The force behind that water that flows through your pipes is determined by what is called the pressure regulator. Over the years, this part tends to becomes worn out and it eventually fails to function properly. This part failure usually results in dramatically decreased water pressure throughout the home.
- Leaks in the System: Leaks big and small can also be the source of a decrease in water pressure. The crack or gap in the pipe allows pressurized water to escape the system before it reaches its target faucet. The water that makes it to the faucet will have lost much of its pressure.
