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If you have older galvanized pipes and low water pressure, you may want to consider repiping your home to replace your outdated plumbing system.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.

Snow White professionals were absolutely excellent. They did everything and more that we asked for, on time and on budget. The standard of work, tidiness and attention to detail were all extremely good. We are incredibly pleased with the work and will definitely use them again.

Shelly Stevens

I have been massively impressed with the efficiency, honesty and quality of service that this company has provided. I needed some decorating, repairs to some window locks and a new electric boiler fitted in a rental flat and it needed doing quickly as the tenants were away. Not only did they do all the work in 4 days but Daniel managed to save me hundreds of pounds by sourcing a slightly dented but new boiler, which was fine as it is hidden in a cupboard and managing to repair the window handles without needing to replace them. I will definitely be using them again. It is so nice and incredibly rare to find this high level of care and consideration.

Kingston KAC

Alex Scafolding Ltd

Daniel and his team are very hardworking, reliable and meticulous, and have done a great job of renovating the whole house inside and out including installing new bathrooms, decorating, carpentry, pointing and leadwork. They are always happy to help and we would definitely recommend them and use their services again.

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.
