Does it seem to take forever to get your dish pan or bathtub to fill up with water? You could be writing your next bestselling novel or world class opera while you wait for the water to arrive. If you are like most people living in a busy city like Los Angeles, you don’t have enough time in the day to fit in all your activities. Wasting precious moments because there is no water pressure can definitely be a source of annoyance.
What causes a loss in water pressure? When pipes become old they begin to corrode and leak. The leak(s) may not be visible to you. You won’t necessarily see a geyser of water spurting out from the wall though there may be other signs. If you are living in an older home and know the pipes haven’t been replaced for 20 years or longer, it might be a good idea to get your piping system inspected.
Leaks can be quite subtle. If you home has been built on a slab of concrete, there may be leak underneath which is called a slab leak. This type of leak is not always easy to detect. There may be one or more leaks in pipes behind the walls of your home. You may start to see damp areas, but very often in the early stages, these types of leaks aren’t noticeable.
Low water pressure indicates there is a problem somewhere. And you know what can happen to problems when they get ignored…..
