What can I do to improve water pressure?
If a recent loss of water pressure has occurred at all the faucets in your building, make sure that the meter valves next to the water meter are fully open. The most common cause we seen in loss of water pressure is when the water softener is malfunctioning. To check your water softener, shut off the bi-pass valve to the water softener and see if your pressure resumes. If your pressure comes back, you know that you will need to have your water softener serviced.
A few other common causes of water pressure is:
• Meter valves and/or other valves are not fully opened.
• Old or corroded piping or corroded connections in the home.
• Clogged screens on faucets.
