What Causes Low Water Pressure?
Over time, galvanized pipes corrode from constant contact with water, causing pipes to shrink in diameter.
If Hot Water Tanks are not routinely flushed out, sediment will begin to collect there and spread to other areas of the property.
Not using faucets frequently enough will allow pockets of sediment to collect.
You should try to run all of your faucets every week for 5-10 mins to prevent this from happening.
Building wide shut downs of the water supply can cause numerous blockages throughout the property.
