Low Hot-Water Pressure Plumbers Brisbane
Are you noticing low hot-water pressure in your shower or throughout your house? A drop in water pressure can be due to various reasons. While you may find simple fixes to your water pressure issues, they may require the help of a plumber.
Below, we break down the most common problems for low water pressure in your house.
Common Reasons for Low Water Pressure in a House
- Bent plumbing lines: If your plumbing lines are bent, this can make it hard for water to pass through, resulting in lower hot water pressure problems. If this affects your shower’s water pressure, your plumber can repipe your lines going to your shower. Otherwise, if you have multiple bends in your plumbing systems, your plumber may need to install a pressure regulator, which can help stabilize your plumbing system’s water pressure and prevent water leaks.
- Blockage in the showerhead: Are you noticing that only your showerhead releases low hot-water pressure? Check your faucets and any other showers in your home. If it’s just your one showerhead that releases low hot-water pressure, you may have blockages in the showerhead.
- Blockage in filter: The outlet and inlet filters may have blockages, too. Your plumber can easily clean the filters or replace them if needed.
- Problems with the pressure regulator: Make sure to set your pressure regulator correctly for the best water flow. If the pressure regulator isn’t working properly, you may need your plumber to replace it.
- Scale buildup: When using a fixture or tap for a while, scale buildup can create low hot-water pressure. If you’re noticing this with your fixtures or taps, your plumber can install a new tap and possibly switch your water to soft instead of hard.
- Wrong water supply line size: This will undoubtedly create low hot- and cold-water pressure as the correct amount of water isn’t flowing. Your plumber should repipe your water system to create better flow and less friction for enhanced water pressure.
- Main water-supply valve not fully open: A halfway-closed water valve will affect your water pressure. A simple fix is to open the main hot water supply valve to increase your water pressure.
- Issues with tempering valve: A tempering valve regulates the temperature for your shower and tap. Sometimes, the filter can have scale buildup or grow old, affecting your temperature regulation and reducing pressure.
