Loss of Water Pressure

There is nothing worse than turning on the shower only to find that there is a tiny trickle of water coming from the faucet. Alternatively, you may be ready to do your next load of laundry, only to find that the washing machine can’t fill with water.

Loss of water pressure in any scenario is inconvenient and almost always untimely. If you are dealing with this scenario, you may be wondering what’s to blame for this plumbing woe and how you can resolve the issue. The first things you might want to do are 1) turn off your water and 2) call a plumbing company for an inspection.

There are several different things that can cause loss of pressure in your plumbing system, with a few items in particular being common culprits. For example, a broken water heater is often the first thing that needs to be checked when loss of water pressure is the issue. Your plumber can troubleshoot any water heater repairs that need to be done or recommend replacement that gets your hot water and water pressure back up to par.

Another option for loss of water pressure is a plumbing leak somewhere in one of your lines. A plumber will have the tools and equipment to address this issue, as well– hopefully before too much water damage occurs in your home.

If your water pressure issue is ongoing, it’s better to call sooner rather than later for the plumbing services you need. Just pick up the phone and dial the number for our team at On-Deck Plumbing, and we’ll make sure that you get great results!
