: We just moved into a newly constructed house. I love it, except the water pressure is so low. It takes forever to filla pot with water or for the washing machine to get started. Is there anything that I can do? Do I need a professional?
There could be a variety of reasons for the low pressure. Is the house on city water or a well. Either way, many times during construction trash and debris can get in the waterlines or plumbing and cause a blockage. Is there any outside faucet where the pressure is adequate? Is there a filter on the water system that may be clogged? Have you talked to the contractor about the problem? All of the aeraotors on your faucets should be cleaned after construction. There are several ways to correct the problem so don't get discouraged. Email me back with some of these questions answered or talk to the contractor.
