Low water pressure sucks! You can barely get any water from the tap, sometimes the toilet won’t flush and taking a shower takes FOREVER! You’d probably love the thought of high water pressure, right? WRONG. It’s the leading cause of leakage, pipe damage and wasted water. That basically results in more money being dished out for your expenses.
Multiple or intermittent leaks, may be signs of high water pressure. Sometimes, the water supplier releases water pressure that is higher than 100 and sometimes 150 psi (much more than it should be for residential homes).
Thermal expansion may also cause this. Usually, your plumbing system is enclosed in a container. When the water is heated up by your heater, it expands and causes the pressure in your pipes to climb.
We’ll show you how you can detect, avoid and stop this high water pressure from causing damage to your home.
- One way that you can fix this is by investing in and installing a water pressure heater. It should reduce the pressure of the city’s water supply, to a safer intensity. Make sure you position it near the meter so the supply line will be protected.
- Another thing you can do is install a thermal expansion tank. Having one of these in your home’s plumbing system can help fluctuations in pressure and volume, which may result in system damage or failure.
