Got Low Water Pressure? Check For Clogged Water Lines

Whether you’re washing your hands or your dishes, you want strong water pressure. Your home’s water supply lines work hard to deliver water through your taps and faucets––but sometimes there may be something putting their hard work on pause.

Check For Clogged Water Lines

If your home has low water pressure, you may be dealing with clogged water lines––something you’ll want to investigate sooner than later.

How to check for clogged water lines

  • Turn to open the faucet all the way on cold.

  • If the stream starts strong but weakens after a couple of seconds, there may be a restriction in the water line. This is normal for hot water because the water has to go through a heater of some kind before flowing through the faucet. This heating process adds some restriction to the flow of water.

If clogged water lines aren't at fault, but you still have low water pressure, consider other possible issues.

What to Do if You Have Clogged Water Lines

If you have clogged water lines, you’ll want to hire a certified plumber to thoroughly inspect and fix your water supply lines to restore the strong water pressure you and your home deserve.
