Why does my house have low water pressure?
Possible reasons for low water pressure:
1) Private home valves sometimes are partially or completely turned off by accident.
2) Water leaks - any damage to the pipe that results in a leak, whether large or small.
3) Peak periods - area residents using water at the same time.
4) Mineral deposits - older homes still using galvanized iron pipes will have mineral deposit buildup over a period of time.
