Water Pressure Problems?

Water pressure is something we hear homeowners gripe about all the time. It’s not just something limited to our area, it happens all over the world. We see water pressure complaints on TV, in books, in movies, and even in newspaper columns with unhappy tenants and landlords. That creates a problem, because now we’ve got homeowners who believe water pressure problems are normal.

While water pressure fluctuations might be normal, and water pressure problems might be common, having poor water pressure in your home should not be a normal occurrence unless you live in a desert. Water heaters in Avon, OH have plenty of access to water, so the only thing stopping your home from achieving comfortable water pressure is either a problem or something with the layout of your home.

Don’t panic—we’ll talk about all of the problems that poor water pressure could signify, as well as what you can do about them.

Sediment Problems

One of the leading problems we see in water heaters is the issue of sediment build-up. Depending on the quality of your water, whether or not it’s got a high amount of minerals and limescale, your water heater will start suffering from sediment deposits that can mess with the water pressure of your plumbing system.

Not only do these build-ups ruin the capacity of your tank water heater and can severely hurt the system’s ability to heat your water, it can also cause a decrease in water pressure. Without the very specific amount of water in your hot water tank, and as the parts erode and get covered in sediment, your system will have a much harder time sending the appropriate amount of water through the plumbing system, hampering your comfort and your water pressure.

This only comes from a lot of neglect. Investing in water heater maintenance or quick water heater repairs can be great solutions for homeowners.

Old Appliances

Did you know that there are new showerheads, faucets, and other plumbing appliances that help improve the efficiency of your water usage? By this we mean that you get higher pressure water while using less, which is a remarkable upgrade for homeowners who are starting to feel the difference in their outdated plumbing systems.
