Low Water Pressure Solution


The majority of people out there don’t really think about their plumbing system until they encounter a real problem with it. However, if your home suffers from low water pressure, then you might already have a big problem at hand. Because of this, you have to make sure you check out your own plumbing system, so you can get in touch with a professional plumbing company in case you have a problem brewing.

If your house has always had low water pressure ever since you moved in, then you probably had a 0.5-inch pipe built in instead of a 1-inch pipe. In general, the smaller your pipe size is, the lower the water pressure will be.

So, if you have any plans of building a home later on, make sure to always use a 1-inch pipe. Although this will cost a bit more, it will definitely be worth the increase in water pressure – remember that.

Another factor that may affect your water pressure would be your valves. Check all of the system’s shut-off valves, including the one that is attached to the water meter. In order to get the highest pressure as possible, all of these valves need to be completely open.

If the water meter seems to be sealed, then you will have to get in touch with your water supplier for help. Unauthorized servicing usually isn’t recommended for these kinds of meters. However, if you are allowed to work on it yourself, then make sure you get the right plumbing tools before you get to work.

If this doesn’t seem to be the cause of your low water pressure, though, then check out all of the main water shut-off valves inside the house instead. These need to be completely open, too. However, if you have one on the water meter,then you will have to get an expert to help you out because you could easily damage it if you have no idea what you’re supposed to be doing.

In fact, if you have no idea what to do, in general, it would always be best to call in the experts. If you already checked all of your valves yet still experience low water pressure, for example, then you might need to look into new water line installation. If your area is prone to earthquakes, on the other hand, then it might have something to do with earthquake damage, so make sure you check out your pipes for breaks and leaks along the line.


If you ever need a plumber because of low water pressure, though, don’t delay because the problem could escalate quite quickly. Just contact Drain City Inc. General Toronto Contractors for help.

A leak or a blockage could definitely cause your water pressure at home to go down. A leak could also be the silent reason as to why your water bill has been much higher than usual lately. Other things you might want to look into include a lead pipe exchange or a cast iron pipe exchange.
