Low Water Pressure? No Problem!

If you’re noticing that one of your faucets all of a sudden seems to have low water pressure it could be something simple.


First check all the faucets in your home and make sure that the low pressure isn't affecting your whole house. If this is the case it could be a sign of a water leak and is best to get it checked out right away.

If it is just a single faucet, start by checking the aerator. The aerator is a device attached to the faucet spout that can be used to shape the water stream, infuse air into the water while producing an evenly pressured flow of water. Over time, aerators can become blocked with mineral deposits. Remove it. If there are large particles clean them out and/or soak the aerator in CLR. If it's not easy to clean out they are very reasonable at your local hardware store or plumbing supplier and it might be easier to grab a new one :).
