Whole-House Water Pressure ProblemsAre you experiencing water pressure problems throughout your house? Assuming it’s a new problem and not one that came with the house, you’re probably looking at one of two issues:
- A problem with the municipal water supply. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do other than call your water supplier to determine if there’s a problem and ask them to fix it.
- A leak in your main line. To determine if you have a leak, shut off all your water valves, check the water meter, and then check it again in a few hours. If there’s a significant difference in the readings, you have a leak and should call a plumber.
