Low water pressure in your shower heads or faucets can be one of the most annoying plumbing problems to deal with and could also be a sign of a much bigger issue in your plumbing. That’s why it’s very important to figure out the problem to avoid costly water damage to your home.
Typically low water pressure means that you could have mineral buildup from the deposits that water leaves behind. Even a small amount of deposits can create blockages and improper water flow. If your pipes are older, and made of galvanized steel, you could also have a build up of natural corrosion which can block water flow.
It’s also possible that you have a leak somewhere in your home’s plumbing system, leading to reduced water pressure throughout your plumbing system. Remember: if the water isn’t coming through the pipes, it’s going somewhere else.
