Why Is My Water Pressure Too High/Low?

28th Jun 2022

If you've been experiencing low or high water pressure, you're not alone. Many homeowners struggle with this issue and there are a few different reasons why it may be occurring. Luckily, NuvoH2O is here to help. In this blog post, we'll share a few of the most common reasons for low or high water pressure and what you can do to fix the issue.


Water Pressure Too High


Malfunctioning Regulator

If your home has a water pressure regulator, it may be the culprit. Water pressure regulators are installed to keep water pressure at a safe level, but sometimes they can malfunction and cause water pressure to become too high. If you think your water pressure regulator is the problem, you should contact a professional to have it checked out.

Pipes Are Too Small

If your home has pipes that are too small, it can cause water pressure to become too high. This is usually not a problem in newer homes, but if you live in an older home with smaller pipes, it may be something to consider. You can contact a professional to have your pipes checked and see if they need to be replaced.

Temperature Changes

As the temperature increases in your plumbing system, the water pressure can also increase. This is most common in the summer months when the water is warmer. If you think temperature changes are causing your water pressure to be too high, you can try adjusting your water heater.



Water Pressure Too Low


Water Main Is Too Far Away

If your home is located too far away from the water main, it can cause water pressure to become too low. This is usually not a problem in newer homes, but if you live in an older home that is located further away from the water main, it may be something to consider. The best option for dealing with this issue is to contact a professional and see what solutions they recommend.

Damaged Pipes

If your home has damaged pipes, it can cause water pressure to become too low. This is usually not a problem in newer homes, but if you live in an older home with damaged pipes, it may be something to consider. You can contact a professional to have your pipes checked and see if they need to be replaced.

Scaling Build Up

If you have hard water, it can cause scaling build-up in your pipes. This build-up can restrict the flow of water and cause water pressure to become too low. The best way to prevent this from happening is to install a NuvoH2O Water Softening System. Unlike other water softening systems that use salt to remove the minerals from hard water, NuvoH2O uses citrus. With this system, you can enjoy all the Edit Task benefits of hard water without the negative side effects.

However, if you have hard water and a build-up of scaling in your pipes is resulting in low water pressure, the best thing you can do is install a NuvoH2O Water Softening System.

This system works by using citrus to remove the minerals from hard water, which in turn prevents scaling build-up in your pipes.
