WHY SHOULD I WORRY ABOUT LOW WATER PRESSURE?
Low water pressure can be a sign that there are other, sometimes more serious, problems with your plumbing system. Which is why whenever there is a drop in water pressure, you should take action or consult your plumber. Over time pipes can become obstructed, corroded, or broken, and fixtures can get blocked, or worn out, affecting your day to day activities. Suddenly your ability to do your laundry, clean the dishes, or even bathe, may be affected. Low pressure not only costs you money but may be an indicator that there is active leak in your plumbing, which if undetected can cause significant damage to your home. Option One plumbers have the right tools, experience, and knowledge to provide a long lasting solution to your low water pressure problems.
WHY SHOULD I WORRY ABOUT HIGH WATER PRESSURE?
Although having high water pressure helps with showers and washing your car, it can become a serious problem for your fixtures and your wallet. It adds additional stress to your plumbing and can potentially lead to costly water leaks if the structure becomes damaged. The lifespan of your appliances and fixtures, such as your water heater, can be greatly reduced. It is important to keep monitoring the water pressure and stay on top of your plumbing system in order to save money and keep your home protected. Simple observation can help indicate high water pressure, for example if water at your sink is shooting out excessively when turned on or if you note a “banging” noise within your pipes (also known as water hammer). Additional tools and expertise are needed if you want to get to the root of the issues.

WHAT CAN CAUSE LOW WATER PRESSURE?
Low water pressure problems can be difficult to troubleshoot as a homeowner since they can come from the actual fixtures (such as shower heads and faucets), or can sometimes be spread throughout the plumbing system.
The pressure regulator in your home may be faulty or need adjustment. A plumber can determine if your water supply coming from the city is low to begin with and can offer solutions. If you have added any water fixtures to your home, the water main line may be insufficient for the new demand. Another cause may be an active leaking pipe due to corrosion, cracks, or other damage. A licensed Option One plumber can assess your situation and provide adequate and fair solutions. Don’t stand by and let the problem get worse, let Option One’s team give you their expert opinion today.
WHAT CAN CAUSE HIGH WATER PRESSURE?
Living on the bottom of a hill can cause high water pressure as municipal water mains are usually under higher pressures in order to accommodate all of their customers in higher altitudes or in tall buildings. Living close to a hydrant can also be a cause since the water is supplied with a much higher pressure, causing a rise in your main water supply. Thermal expansion may be another culprit as water volume changes when it is heated causing a rise in pressure.
An experienced technician can provide the best solution to your high pressure situation. Whether it is replacing a faulty pressure regulator or installing a thermal expansion tank for your water heater, let Option One bring you peace of mind and save you money in the long term.
WHAT CLIENTS SAY?
KIND WORDS FROM OUR LOYAL CLIENTS
"Had a water pressure issue and thought it would be an easy fix and sent out a quote request on Yelp. Option One offered to come out to do a quote. When the tech, Devin, came out he discovered it was a bigger issue than we thought that was costing more than we planned for. After getting a few quotes, Option One was the cheapest and quickest. Devin came out twice within 24 hours to do the initial assessment to offer a quote and then later to fix the problem. Definitely great service all around."
"I am a full time realtor and I was let down by my local plumber. My client’s house was in escrow and I had a temperature and pressure line on the water heater that needed to be replaced at short notice. His work was very clean and he had exceptional knowledge. In fact I don’t think I have ever met a more professional and knowledgeable tradesmen."
