Low Water Pressure Problem

Low water pressure can be frustrating.  We understand: we can become irritable too when we can’t take a decent shower.   You never feel quite right especially in the cold Ottawa winters.low pressure Ottawa

Causes of Low Water Pressure

It can be a clogged water filter or flow restrictor.  Your house could be in a bad location relatively to your local water tower. Some other common causes are:

  • Water filters clogged with sand and sediment.
  • A clog or kink located in the primary water line
  • Flow restrictors in showers or taps that are clogged.
  • Water shut off valves set to the closed position.
  • Water pressure relief valves that are faulty.

It’s important to figure out the exact reason(s) for low pressure.  The best case scenario for applying the wrong solution is that nothing changes.  In other cases, you could make the problem worse.
