Low Water Pressure?

Do you have a Low Water Pressure?

It means one or more fixtures in a home do not give out enough water flow. It is possible to have adequate water pressure coming into the home, and still have low water flow out of one or more fixtures – for sure it needs to be inspected!


Low flow water fixtures are sink faucets, shower heads, and toilets that use less water per minute than older models. Low-flow water fixtures conserve water by using a high-pressure system to produce a strong or equal flow of water with less water than the older less-efficient fixtures.

Low water pressure?- in the whole house?

If every fixture in the house has low water pressure, the cause may be corroded piping, a restriction of the line due to a failed pressure relief valve (PRV), low municipal water flow or a supply valve that is partially closed.

Flow restrictors

  • Flow restrictors are small plastic or metal discs, about the size of a nickel, that are placed inside sink faucets and shower heads to limit the amount of water that is able to pass through the unit. Flow restrictors can cause weak water flow. It is possible that low water pressure in the home may be further restricted when using faucets and shower heads with flow restrictors.
  • Many faucets have an aerator or filter screen. This can also cause low water flow if it is clogged.
