Low Water Pressure? Here’s What That Means

Low Water PressureAs a homeowner calling a plumber due to low water pressure may seem unnecessary. However, this is often a sign of clogged pipes or significant issues with draining. When persistent low water pressure exists, homeowners use more water to complete the same tasks such as showering and washing dishes. Slow draining pipes leave residue behind, and continued build-up left untreated can eventually lead to a blocked pipe. Locating the blockage, causing your drop in water pressure can be difficult to find on your own. This is one reason to hire a professional plumber to resolve your low water pressure plumbing problems.
