Low Water Pressure in Skokie

Helping You Restore Your Water Pressure to Normal

Low water pressure is an annoying situation. From using a shower that can barely wash you off to a long, slow dishwashing cycle, nothing works right. Low water pressure forces you to run appliances longer, costing you money on your energy bill.

If you and everyone in your area are experiencing low water pressure in your home or business, that means it’s a problem with the water municipality, not you. In that case, call the water utility for an update on work that might be happening in your area.

If low water pressure is only affecting a single faucet or shower head, the problem is localized. Look for a clogged aerator, partially closed supply stop valve, flow restriction, or dislodged washer. If the problem is going on throughout the home, follow this guide.

Clogs in the Pipes?

Poor water pressure is usually the result of a clog in the pipes. But before overhauling the pipes take a moment to check some other common issues. Go to your water meter and locate the main valves. Make sure these valves are entirely open. A partially closed supply valve could be causing your problem. Your home may also have a water pressure regulator device. Failure of this device can cause rapid loss of water pressure. This device regulates the input pressure of your plumbing system and is best left to professionals when problems arise.

Is the Water Running Elsewhere?

Most buildings have trouble handling a heavy water demand from several different fixtures at once. For instance, your shower running at the same time someone else is doing dishes and someone else is watering the lawn can lead to decreased water pressure for everyone.

Leaks in the System

Water leaks allow water to escape the closed system of pipes. If enough water is gushing out through the leak, the water pressure through the faucets can be decreased. This is a problem that requires immediate attention. A good way to tell if you have a leak is to turn off all water inside and outside of the house and read your water meter. Wait two hours and read it again, and if the number has increased, you have a leak.
