We all get used to a certain level of water pressure in our homes. Sometimes, an excessively low or high level of pressure can cause us discomfort. Some people may prefer an increased level of water pressure, because they feel it provides more of a cleansing feeling in the shower. However, there are plumbing problems associated with both high and low water pressure that are worth understanding.

Low Pressure

If you notice a decrease in water pressure, your system may be experiencing problems such as clogged aerators (screens on your taps), frozen or damaged pipes, or external factors such as a malfunctioning fire hydrant or construction in your area.

High Pressure

On the other hand, your water pressure may increase. This causes damage to your pipes and wastes a lot of water over time, ultimately costing you money. If you notice recurring leaks in your home or toilets running without being used, then you should seek an inspection from a licensed plumber. The high water pressure can cause expensive damage to your system like burst pipes or flooding.
