Barretta Plumbing - 7 Causes Of Water Pressure Loss

7 Causes Of Water Pressure Loss


It can be very frustrating to lose water pressure because a low pressure could prevent your boilers working properly.

Possible causes:

  1. There could be a general fall in pressure while the utility company is working on their infrastructure.
  2. There could be a leak in the system and water is being diverted from your main inlet.
  3. In a hard water area the pipes could just be furred up with calcium reducing the diameter of the pipes and allowing less water to flow through them.
  4. You might have accidentally partially closed the main inlet control valve.
  5. The demand in the local area could have spiked as many people tried to draw water at the same time.
  6. The underground piping to your house could be old and filled with rust. The piping may need to be replaced.
  7. There is always the risk that a fall in water pressure could indicate a leak in the house so check to see if you can see your water meter spinning even if you have no faucets open.
