Can I Fix My Water Pressure?

On average, you use about 300 gallons of water a day. From showering to washing hands, we often do not think much about where that water comes from. It seems as though it’s a given that we will have a steady flow of water coming from our pipes; until we notice a change in our water pressure. Then we start to wonder what happened and how can it be fixed? 

If you notice a change in your home’s water pressure, the first thing to do is determine if it’s a neighborhood issue or just in your home. Ask your neighbors if they have noticed a change in their water pressure. Sometimes your town’s water supplier may be experiencing an issue. Make sure the water supplier is aware of the issue, so they know to fix it. 

Sometimes, the issue may not be with the water supplier but with your town or city. Sometimes a city changes its water regulations. If this occurs, the water supplier has no choice but to comply. In this case, you will have to do something yourself to increase your home’s water pressure. The purchase of a water pressure booster system will do the trick. However, do not attempt to install this system yourself. Call in a professional. 

If nothing has changed with your water supplier or town’s regulations, then the issue is mostly within your home. Some common causes are corroded pipes, issues with the main shutoff valve, and faulty fixtures. Whenever you notice a change in your home’s water pressure, it’s a good idea to call in a trained professional. We have the best Manhattan plumbers on staff who will be able to come to your home and determine the cause and fix the issue.
