Reduced water pressure in your bathroom may not seem like worst plumbing problem imaginable, but it can certainly be a nuisance. Low bathroom water pressure makes it difficult to perform a lot of basic daily tasks such as showering, cleaning, and even brushing your teeth. But what many homeowners don’t realize is that low water pressure can indicate a major plumbing issue, and your bathroom plumbing could be in critical condition.
Here are a few of the reasons you may experience low water pressure in one or more faucets or fixtures in the home. Call Ace Pelizon Plumbing as soon as you notice a problem with your bathroom plumbing in Walnut, CA.
Hard water is a very common problem here in the United States, affecting the majority of homes. You may have heard the term before, perhaps when friends and neighbors discuss the white or yellowish-green deposits that form around their drains and faucets or the damaging effect on one’s hair. However, hard water is a larger problem than you may think, as mineral deposits, known as scale, can gather in the pipes and reduce the pressure of the water that flows past. A professional will have to descale the pipes if the problem is caught early on. If not, it may lead to costly replacement of pipes and/or fixtures, which is why we recommend a water softener for any homeowner at risk.
Plumbing systems are built tough to withstand a lot of pressure, but your pipes could still spring a leak for a number of different reasons. You may develop corrosion over time if your pipes are several decades old. However, a burst pipe is also likely due to changes in the soil surrounding it (such as resettling after a nearby construction project), faulty installation of joints and connections, or in some cases, tree root infiltration. A professional uses state-of-the-art equipment to find the exact source of the leak and decide the steps of repair. You may choose to schedule annual plumbing maintenance every year for a full inspection that could help prevent this from occurring in the future.
Clogged Water Filtration System:
Finally, you may experience low water pressure due to your whole-house water filtration system. A water filtration system works from a point-of-entry in your water supply to prevent pollutants like bacteria and nitrates from coming through all of the faucets in your home. If the filter becomes clogged, it could seriously affect the water pressure, and a plumber will need to come clean it out or replace it.
