Having the correct pressure at home is vital for the efficient functioning of your heating system and boiler. When the water pressure in your home is too low, that might bring to a problem, such as not having hot water in your home.

Can you check whether your water pressure is low?

Most of the new boilers will have a water pressure gauge that you can check yourself. This pressure gauge may be located on top of your boiler below a cover or flap. A good level of pressure is between 1 and 2 bars of pressure when the boiler is not used. Anything below 1 bar is considered insufficient water pressure and will need to be topped up using a filling valve.

What caused low boiler pressure?

Many different things can cause low water pressure. Some of the more common problems are relatively easy to repair, including clogged aerator screens, worn faucets, and partially closed valves. Sometimes you won‘t be able to fix the water pressure problem easy, and you will need the services of a professional plumber like ours at Snow White Handyman.

Common causes of low water pressure include the following:

●Clogged fixtures

●Corroded pipes

●Faulty pressure regulators

●Clogged water pipes

●Inadequate main water supply line

●Closed or partially closed water valves

If you have hard water, your pipes are constantly battling the effects of corrosion. Over time the interior diameter of corroded pipes grows smaller, which limits the amount of water that can pass through them. Eventually, this will decrease the pressure in your home. If you have older galvanized pipes and low water pressure, you may want to consider repiping your home to replace your outdated plumbing system.

●Ageing piping systems can also be clogged with a buildup of derbies that negatively impacts the water flow. If the low water pressure affects just a single fixture, you may have a clogged distributing pipe or valve.

A shared water supply is commonly found in multifamily housing. Two or more families using water from one incoming supply pipe can cause pressure fluctuations or low water pressure when several fixtures are open at the same time. This condition is most noticeable during peak hours of use, especially in the morning when most people shower.

Our clients about us

Eamon McDonald

I had a fairly substantial project that would need great care and communication throughout.There was a great need for complete transparency as the works were to be constrained by budget.From experience I know that there are always those hidden problems that no one expects until you get into the build.For this reason it's essential to have a team that can adapt and draw on their wealth of experience to get a first class result.The Snow White team kept me up to date every step of the way and most importantly kept a close watch on costs.The quality of work is excellent and the builders were both professional and tidy.I have appointed Snow White for all my future builds...well done and Thank You!

Andrew Joyce

Kingston KAC

Reliable company, very impressed with the handy man`s work. Recomended!

Arabella Rowe

We were very impressed with Snow White. They renovated our bathroom, moved our boiler, replaced the ceilings on the first floor and fully rewired & re-plastered. They were always responsive, reliable and delightful to have around - always courteous to our neighbours and good at tidying up after themselves. Completion was a little bit delayed due to unforeseen issues with the ceilings, but the team kept us fully aware and worked until 7.30pm on a Saturday in an attempt to get everything finished within the deadline - we had to make them go home! Highly recommend these guys - the best building company we have worked with in London so far, and we will certainly be using them again.

Rockstar Property Academy

We’ve worked with Snow White on several projects now and we’re always happy with the service. Daniel and Yana have become friends now, they recently took us out for dinner too! They’re an ethical family/friends -run business that always put the customer first. Don’t hesitate to work with Snow White, they’re a great company.

Andy Whitting

Snow White have done several jobs for us, ranging from garden maintenance and installing fencing to blocking up an old doorway and making some bespoke shelving. The quality of every job have been excellent. Their staff all work hard; arrive at 8am and work through to late afternoon to get the job done. Unlike many companies, it's easy to get hold of the boss, they're always willing to quote even for small jobs, and the quotes arrive quickly. After trying a few other companies, with mixed results, we'll be sticking with Snow White.

L Oconnor

Excellent service from start to finish. I am extremely pleased with the work that was done - removal of an electric fireplace, space plastered over, wallpaper removed on the same wall and also plastered over. The office were easy to contact, they visited quickly to give me a quote, and then the work was scheduled very quickly after this. The builder was very professional, courteous, hard working and tidy. I would definitely recommend this company and would use them again for other work.

Tim A

Galin repaired brickwork around my fishpond and replaced the waterfall and capping stones. He did a fantastic job and no detail I requested was too much trouble. I will happily use Snow White again for any building or repair jobs. They are a great team and very fairly priced.
