Why is my water pressure low?

  • A clogged aerator on a faucet can slow the flow. Remove the aerator from the faucet, clean it, and put back on.
  • Consult with a plumber.
  • If you have a pressure reducing valve (PRV) installed to protect your plumbing, it may need adjusting. Most PRVs are installed after the water meter or before the water heater. Talk to a plumber before adjusting it.
  • If your water pressure suddenly drops to almost nothing…it could be a result of a broken water line.
