Plumber Tarneit Specialists Reveal Possible Causes of Low Water Pressure in Your Home

Low water pressure can prove to be a real headache at times for most homeowners. Not only is it time-consuming, but also very frustrating. What is more, trying to figure out what went wrong with the home plumbing system can be very confusing. What exactly are the most common causes of low water pressure, and what can be done about it? Closely following the advice of reputed plumbers in Tarneit might be all you need.


We listed 6 of the most common low water pressure problems below:


  1. Malfunctioning water supply - There comes a time when your water pressure is much lower than it should be even though there seems to be nothing wrong. In most cases, the public water supply system is at fault. All you need to do is get hold of the Tarneit water supply division and make them aware of the problem


  1. Wrong pipe sizes - You may have recently repaired your plumbing system and are now experiencing some water pressure issue due to wrong pipe sizes. This is a common occurrence when homeowners take short cuts with their budget through hiring inexperienced plumbers. It is better to use a professional plumber Tarneit who is fully qualified to ensure the correct pipe sizes are being used.


  1. Dealing with mineral build-up - Every single pipe in your home plumbing system is susceptible to a mineral build-up. After all, water contains minerals, which are generally build up on the surfaces both interior and exterior pipes. Through the years, the build-up gets so bad that it restricts the flow of water. The problem can be resolved by flushing down a special plumbing chemical down your pipes.


  1. Corroded pipes - Galvanised iron or steel pipes become corroded due to low water pressure. It is a lot similar to mineral build-up in that it eventually restrict the flow of water. Unlike mineral build-up, it cannot be fixed through using chemicals. You need to completely remove the pipes and reinstall new ones. Hire reputed plumbers to do this for you.


  1. Faulty fixtures and taps - At times, low water pressure issues do not necessarily have anything to do with a low PSI. Faulty fixtures or taps might be causing the problem. Let a professional plumber in Tarneit check their functionality before you put it down to a low PSI. Some simple replacements might be all you need.


  1. Leaking pipes - Water leaks are not always detectable, especially if the leaking pipes are not visible. All you need to do is to switch off the taps and valves in and around your home, then take a meter reading. Then leave it for a few hours before you take another reading. If the reading increased, then it is a sure indication of a leaking pipe.

Even though some useful tips have been provided as to what could possibly be causing low water pressure problems in your home, we do not in any way suggest that you carry out your own troubleshooting or repairs. When you experience any of the above-mentioned problems or any other plumbing issues, it is best to call in expert plumbers in Tarneit to assess it and offer a solution.
