|In response to Re: Low water pressure problem|
A pressure boosting pump will only help if the problem is the city water pressure. If you inside lines are plugged, the pump will not provide any more pressure than the city would supply. And if the pipe to the house is getting plugged, then the pump would cavitate from inadequate supply and destroy itself.
: I recently moved into an old home (built in the 1890s)and have found that I can't have more than one water-related thing on at one time because the water pressure wanes to almost a trickle. This includes everything - shower, sinks, washer, flushing the toilet, and spicket/hose outside. This has become increasingly annoying, mostly because I'd just like to know what the problem is. Before I moved in, the previous owner told me that it was due to an old main water pipe to the house; my inspector told me it was probably due to non-copper pipes in the walls. Unfortunately, I know nothing about plumbing and in my quest to get educated before I call anyone, I stumbled across this site. I'm hoping I can get some good suggestions on what to look into next.
