In response to Re: LOW INLET WATER PRESSURE CHECK Meter
Open the water meter box and look at the meter. Is there a valve right after the meter on the "customer" side? Is there a user servicible shut off at the meter? Turn off the water to the hoses at the meter. On the customer side install your pressure gauge. I'll bet it will read a lot higher than 27 psi. If it does, then you have learned that you have damaged the supply from the meter to your house, or it has corroded or rusted inside the actual pipe. Look inside the joint that you disconnected at the meter. Is it clean and free of obstructions? If so, trace the water line about twenty feet and dig up the next joint, or look where there is a likely point of damage (like a wet spot near the driveway, or very lush vegetation)or a point where a foundation wall may have setteled, (or kids have been parking that "extra" car on the front lawn).

: The city water pressure coming into the house is 27PSI. Does anyone know how I can increase my water pressure.
