Low water pressure in your home can mean a ton of inconvenience and stress. Imagine taking a shower with a lousy dribble or washing dishes with water that’s barely enough to wash a chicken, much less that mountain of dishes. Here’s how to deal with the problem:
Give it the pressure test
Sometimes, poor water pressure is the result of clogged pipes. You can use an outdoor water spigot to check for this. Don’t know how? You might want to hire a professional to do this for you instead.
However, if you’ve got a new home, then that’s likely not going to be the problem, says the Family Handyman.
Identify possible causes of the problem
If it’s not a clogged pipe that’s causing your low pressure woes, then it might be the size of your pipes. Your pipes could turn out to be too small, preventing more water from getting through. That’s another likely reason for the problem. However, if it turns out that your water department simply can’t deliver more pressure to your system, then it might be time to consider installing an Aquatec booster pump instead.
Pick the right one
You’ll want to make sure you buy the right booster pump for your filtration. That’s where research comes in. Do your homework. Ask your neighbors. Know what types of pumps work well for them. That could easily give you an idea which options will make for a sound choice. This way, you can shop with confidence and ease, having a better idea of the kind of pumps that will best fit your needs.
Checking the warranty
In some cases, connecting that Aquatec booster pump to a mains supply can void the warranty on your pumps. Make sure you review the terms and conditions of use before you move forward with the installation. Keeping these restrictions in mind puts things in perspective. You can make better decisions when you know what’s involved and what’s at stake.
Too much pressure
In some cases, you can end up with too much water pressure too. That’s why finding the right pump is key. You’ll want to check the features and functions of that pump before you install it in your system. That way, you can prevent pressure problems from plaguing you in the future.
