We get calls from Seattle residents fairly often with plumbing problems that relate to restricted flow in their home’s pipes. In this article, Raymark Plumbing & Sewer looks at what exactly causes restricted flow in residential plumbing.
Debris or Buildup
When debris such as sand, dirt, and pollutants starts to build up in pipes, you can end up with restricted flow in your plumbing. These things can enter your Seattle home’s pipes when a water main fractures. Even without a fractured line, your pipes are prone to mineral buildup from the deposits that water leaves behind when traveling through your home. It doesn’t take much; even a small amount of sediment can create a blockage in your home’s plumbing. If you think you may have buildup in your pipes, call Raymark Plumbing & Sewer today.
Low Water Pressure
Although the steel or galvanized water piping systems in your Seattle home are designed to last up to 20 years, the insides of these pipes tend to block the flow of water when natural corrosion occurs. In terms of repairing, there isn’t much that homeowners can do to completely rectify this problem, but entrusting a trusted local company to assess the situation can keep your plumbing working for years to come.
Water leaks can also cause low water pressure, because not all of the water is making its way to your faucet, toilet, or shower. Some of it is leaking through the cracked or damaged pipe. Check your pipes for visible damage or leaks. If you think you may have a leak, give us a call.
