If you aren’t happy with your water pressure, you may think it’s just an inconvenience. However, the underlying problems are a cause for concern and so should be fixed straight away. A qualified plumber will be able to test water pressure, diagnose the problem and make essential repairs. At Emergency Plumbers, we have experienced technicians who can address any of your plumbing issues. Here are some of the reasons you should use a plumber to Fix Water Pressure in Sydney.
You may sometimes notice low water pressure while in the shower or while washing dishes. The trickle from the shower will make it difficult to wash away soap, while your kitchen sink will take too long to fill up. You may also hear a whistling sound when you turn on the taps. Test the water pressure yourself with a gauge from your local hardware store. If it gives a reading of 30 psi or lower, then you’ve got a problem. There are two main issues with regard to water pressure and they are:
Leaky pipes not only make it inconvenient for you to wash your dishes or have a quick shower, but they also cause you to waste water. Leaks can also cause extensive damage to your property. You can diagnose this by checking your water meter.
Pipes could be restricted from a mineral build up or damage. We can identify this problem by using camera inspection. If this is the case, you need to hire a professional plumber to Fix Your Water Pressure.
Water pressure can be a problem at the other end of the scale as well. If it’s coming out too fast, you may have high water pressure. If your gauge measures over 80 psi, then it is too high and needs to be fixed.
Excessive water pressure may not cause you any immediate problems, however, it can be problematic down the track. It places a lot of stress on pipes as well as the fixtures and fittings. Eventually, pipes will crack putting you at risk of water damage. It’s more cost-effective to address the water pressure than repair broken pipes. Monitor your water pressure with a regulator installed on your main line. Your local plumber can fix any irregularities.
Your water pressure troubles could be due too much or not enough pressure. Underlying problems, if left untreated, can turn into very expensive issues. We recommend hiring a professional plumber to Fix Your Water Pressure as soon as possible. At Emergency Plumbers, we can get to you round the clock for your convenience. Call us at 1300 237 246
