Common Causes of Low Water Pressure in Phoenix & Glendale Homes

Residential plumbing systems rely on a fairly precise set of components, systems, and pressure levels. A wide range of issues can throw any of these out of whack, resulting in a loss of water pressure.

Commonly, water pressure problems are the result of:

  • Pipe clogs. Mineral deposits build up in most types of pipes over time, unless you’ve had PEX piping installed. Once the deposits get large enough, they can restrict your entire home’s water supply.
  • Pipe leaks. Leaks make it nearly impossible for your home’s water lines to remain properly pressurized. They tend to cause water dribbling from taps, if the water runs out of open taps at all.
  • Faulty plumbing fixtures. This may be the leading cause of water pressure problems, and thankfully, it usually just requires replacing a plumbing fixture on one of your home’s systems, like on a toilet or shower. So, checking your plumbing fixtures is usually a good place to start when you experience a loss in water pressure.
  • Issues with the main supply valves. The main supply line ties into the city or your private well, providing water to your entire home. The flow of water from this pipe is governed by two valves. If either of these are damaged or turned incorrectly, your water pressure can drop.
  • Issues with a well. The pressure in well water pumps is controlled by a pressure gauge and switch system. If either of these parts is damaged, the well pump will not operate properly, and you’ll experience poor water pressure.

What Do I Do If My Water Pressure Is Too High?

When your home’s water pressure is too high, call for plumbing repair service immediately. Excessively high water pressure can damage your plumbing system, as well as possibly cause safety hazards. The most common cause of excessively high water pressure is a failing pressure regulator. Occasionally, other issues may be the root of the problem.

Common Water Pressure Questions in Phoenix and Glendale

Why does the water pressure go from extremely low to extremely high?

Sharp changes in water pressure can be caused by sluggish pressure controls, and pressure gauge sensitivity in particular.

Why do I have low water pressure in my home?

Some common causes of low water pressure in your home are debris within the faucet aerators, pipe clogs, pipe leaks, issues with plumbing fixtures, and problems with the main supply valves.

Is it possible to measure the water pressure in my home myself? 

Yes, you can purchase pressure gauges from a home improvement store to measure the water pressure in your home. However, it is imperative that you follow their instructions to the letter. Many homeowners get false readings by improperly using these devices.

Is water pressure the same throughout the regional plumbing system?

This is a common question, and the answer is that the water pressure fluctuates throughout the region. This is due to everything from changes in contours of the land to distance from the nearest pumping station.

Is too much water pressure a problem?

Yes, too much water pressure is dangerous. When the water pressure is too high, it can cause damage to the plumbing system and your fixtures.

How do you increase water pressure from a well?

Raising the settings on your pressure switches or installing an additional pressure tank can increase the amount of pressure from your well. You can also install a constant pressure valve or pressure booster.

How long do water well pumps last?

A well-maintained well pump should last between 8 and 15 years. This varies based on the quality of the motor, the depth of the water table, how hard the water is, and how much sediment is in the water supply.

Why does the faucet “spit”? 

Spitting faucets are the result of leaking pressure tanks. This allows air to infiltrate the water lines, which is what causes the spitting.

What is the water pressure in Arizona?

ADEQ requires a minimum of 20 psi throughout Arizona. This helps prevent infiltration of contaminants. However, water pressure to residences and businesses in the state can range from 20 to 60 psi.

Can corrosion affect water pressure?

Corroded pipes restrict water flow, which can result in low water pressure within the home.
