By using the most advanced equipment, the professional technicians at VA Plumbing will thoroughly inspect your entire plumbing system to determine the cause of the problem. Hiring a professional Northern Virginia plumber to fix low water pressure will save you time and money.
What Causes Low Water Pressure?
If you experience low water pressure, larger plumbing problems could be lingering in your pipes. Whether you’ve noticed a gradual change in your water flow rate or the change suddenly occurred, it’s time to call a professional plumber. Low water pressure is often caused by, but not limited to, the following: * Clogged Pipe: A clogged water pipe can contribute to low water pressure. * Faulty Pressure Regulator: If the pressure regulator attached to the pipes outside your home fails, each faucet in your home could experience low water pressure. The VA Plumbing team can test the regulator to see if it is the problem. * Mineral Buildup: Over time, your pipes will become lined with mineral buildup. If the change in your water pressure happened gradually rather than all at once, buildup from grease and other debris could be to blame. * Old Pipes: Old iron pipes corrode from the inside out, so it would be impossible for you to identify this as the problem without a camera inspection from a plumber.
Low water pressure may be a symptom of another problem happening within your pipes. If a leak occurs, not only will you lose water pressure, but you’ll also see an increase in your monthly water bill.
How To Fix Low Water Pressure
The first step in determining how to fix your low water pressure problem is to determine the cause through a thorough sewer camera inspection. A professional plumber will be able to determine if there are any clogs, cracks, or buildup that could contribute to your problem.
Routine professional drain cleaning services will ensure your pipes are free of debris that can limit your pipes’ flow rate. When needed, the VA Plumbing team can use trenchless pipe repair to fix breaks or crack. Trenchless pipe lining is the fastest, minimally invasive way to repair an underground pipe without destroying your lawn or flooring. If the low water pressure is caused by a broken or collapse pipe, trenchless pipe bursting will allow our professional plumbers to completely repair your sewer line without digging.
