Cummings Plumbing talks about troubleshooting water pressure problems at home

TUCSON, AZ / ACCESSWIRE / March 24, 2021 / Plumbing and HVAC experts, Cummings Plumbing, were featured in a recent Newswire article that addressed common household water pressure issues. They each provided insights and troubleshooting tips.

Headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling has been in the business for 36 years and during that time has addressed myriad plumbing issues, including water pressure issues.

The article begins by discussing corrosion and how corrosion or wear and tear on pipes is one of the most common causes of low water pressure. When pipes rust and weaken, the amount of water that can flow through them becomes limited.

With that in mind, debris ranging from calcium buildup to dirt and debris is also a common cause of low water pressure.

“Accumulations of such materials, ranging from calcium deposits to dirt, grease, or even tree roots, ultimately corrode the pipe and its fittings, impeding water flow,” said Cummings Plumbing.

The third cause of low water pressure is clogging. However, this is one of the easiest issues to fix. If you suspect that clogging is weakening water pressure, experts recommend buying a drain snake from a hardware store or developing a natural remedy with baking soda, vinegar, and salt to clear it up.

Later in this article, Cummings Plumbing noted that leaks are one of the more dangerous causes of low water pressure as they can easily go undetected for long periods of time, resulting in water damage and a higher water bill. Other causes of low water pressure include undersized water pipes, pressure regulator failures, shared water supply lines, and increased water consumption.

Finally, the Newswire article concludes with a brief section that explains the most common causes of high water pressure, which can also be a problem in some households. Cummings Plumbing claimed that in some cases the water pressure can be so high that it poses a hazard to the home’s plumbing system. They went on to explain that a home exposed to high water pressure is often the result of the utility company. Utilities set water pressure for everything from households to fire hydrants. If you find that your water pressure is extremely high (in the 100 to 150 psi range) it is important to call a professional who can bring the water pressure back to a safe level.
