Check Your Water Lines
If you're noticing low water pressure in your sinks and showers, there may be a restriction in your water lines. While it can be tough to closely inspect your water lines, there's a way to check if they're at fault.
How to check your 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 the water lines aren't at fault but you still have low water pressure, consider other possible issues.
What to Do if Your Water Lines Are Clogged
You'll want to hire a certified plumber to thoroughly inspect and fix your water supply lines to restore the water pressure you've been missing.
