Did it surprise you that the water from your kitchen sink gushes like water, but when you take a shower upstairs, only a small amount of water is emitted?
It is possible to have high and low water pressures on certain days, and vice versa. There are many ways to increase the water pressure in your upstairs bathrooms so that you can get the spa treatment you deserve. Any fluctuations in your house’s water pressure are an abnormality and must be dealt with immediately.
How do you deal with low water pressure upstairs
Water Pressure Restrictors for Faucets
Many kitchen hardware items and bathroom hardware have a water pressure limiter. Low water pressure can make it difficult to use your shower head or faucet.
Take out the faucet heads.
You can remove the rubber with your finger and tweezers. Screw the faucet head into place. It will eventually improve the water pressure. If it doesn’t, you may have to perform additional tests.
Too high water pressure
Water flows down your pipe and loses pressure due to friction.
The water will flow more easily through the pipes so it makes sense to set your upstairs water pressure slightly lower than the downstairs. Long Beach Plumber can help you.
Low water pressure upstairs can be caused by a buildup of dirt or other debris. Remove the faucet head, and wash it with hot water. Next, soak the faucet head in household vinegar overnight. Next, soak it in household vinegar overnight.
House Water Pressure Changes over Time
High use of the Same Water Line
You and your neighbor may share a waterline, depending on how your city regulates it. It is possible that someone is filling up a swimming-pool or washing cars in your neighborhood. If one of your neighbors uses lots of water, your home’s water pressure could be affected. Once the neighbors have finished, your water pressure should return to normal.
Faulty Pressure Regulating Valve
A problem with your pressure regulator valve could cause water pressure to fluctuate over time or trickle down.
Water Supply to the City
A problem with your city’s water supply could cause random fluctuations in your home’s water pressure. A blockage or outage could indicate a problem with your city’s water supply.
Pipes/Old Pipes Buildup
With age, pipes can develop more buildup. Other times, it is due to natural corrosion. A Long Beach plumber should be able to address this issue so that your pipes can be properly cleaned.
