Having Low Water Pressure?


If you’re realising a dip in water pressure for no apparent reason, make sure to check your local water supplier’s website for updates. Or, ask your neighbours to see if they are facing similar issues. If low water pressure is affecting everyone in your area, you won’t be able to do much but sit around and wait for the problem to be fixed, hoping that it’ll only take a few hours. Call Mr.Drain to fix your problem soon.


Low water pressure in well water systems is sometimes caused by plumbing infrastructure that you’ll need to replace if you want higher water pressure in your home.

Multiple Faucets Are Turned On at Once

If you have many family members, and everyone is at home and using water at the same time, your water pressure will go down. If your home’s psi is in the lower range of the fixed 40 to 80 psi, or if your water pressure pump isn’t that strong, the water flow can slow down to a trickle during peak hours in your home.

The best solution would be to get a plumber to install a water pressure pump for a higher flow of water into your home. This way, the water pressure in your home won’t dip so low that it will affect tasks when everyone is home.

The Main Valve Might Not Be Fully Opened

If your whole house is experiencing low water pressure, and not just when two or more facets are turned on, you’ll want to check if the main valve is opened all the way. The best way to identify if it’s an issue with the valve is with the kitchen sink, as the main will supply water to the kitchen first before making its way up to the roof’s water tank.

The main shut-off valve that controls the water flow into your home will be where the meter is, located in or just outside or near the edge of your property close to the street. If the valve is partially or fully turned off for some reason, it will cause low water pressure. In some residential estates, your main water valve might be exposed to the public, and some naughty neighbourhood kids may find it amusing to regularly turn down your valve. Just turn it back on full to get full water pressure again.

Damaged pressure tank: If your pressure tank has a leak, it will create low water pressure. You’ll need to replace the tank if it’s damaged.

Aging well pump: Well pumps generally last around eight to 15 years, depending on how often they’re used. If your well pump is more than 15 years old, you should consider a replacement.

Narrow pipes: Even if your home has a high psi, you won’t be able to achieve high water pressure if your pipes are too narrow. They should be half an inch, three-fourths of an inch, or 1 inch in diameter.
