What Causes Low Pressure on Your Faucet?
If it is isolated to one faucet, a common cause is clogs or debris in the aerator screen. Other possibilities include a leaky pipe, or the faucet could just be old. If all of the faucets are affected, it could be a sign of too many added fixtures competing for water flow, or you may just have overall poor water pressure.
We Can Fix It
A licensed technician will need to be consulted if the entire property is experiencing low water pressure. A booster pump or a larger main line can be added, but you don’t want to attempt this yourself. Let a professional do the installation, as well as fix leaky pipes and replace worn faucet units. An experienced plumber will be able to tell whether you just need to replace a part like an internal valve or go ahead and replace the whole fixture.
However, a simple clog in your faucet is usually ok to handle on your own. The aerator screen is commonly located in the faucet spout and can be removed by unscrewing the end of your faucet. Just rinse it off or clean it with warm water and vinegar. If the screen looks fine, check to see if the cartridge in the faucet head is clogged, broken, or stuck.
