Low Water Pressure
Low water pressure presents itself when you turn on the tap and water only trickles from it. At The Pipe Shark, we recommend a drain cleaning process called hydro jetting to clear up clogs and buildup that’s impeding flow and sewer system efficiency. Our technicians are skilled, experienced, and pay special attention to your pipes as they utilize high-end technology to resolve your low water pressure problem.
How We Determine the Cause of Your Low Water Pressure
There are several reasons why you may be experiencing low water pressure. Some of the more common ones include a partially closed main valve, clogging in the faucet or showerhead aerator and broken pressure regulators. If your pipes don’t use a filtration system, the minerals collect on the shower heads and aerators, eventually filling it up and causing slowdown. Homeowners and business owners can clean showerheads and aerators, but if the problem persists then it could be a sewer line issue. The combination of corrosion and low water pressure can mean heavy metals are leaking into your drinking water supply or a leak that could lead to burst pipes and flooding. In this case you’ll notice that your water bill is abnormally higher than your usual usage.
At The Pipe Shark, our reliable technicians can find the root cause of your reduced water pressure via a trenchless sewer camera inspection process. A CCTV camera is affixed to a fiber optic line, which is then fed down to your drain line. The video feedback will show us the condition of your pipe and any damage it has suffered that’s causing the low water pressure. With this technology, our technicians can come up with an accurate diagnosis, which naturally leads to the correct trenchless solution for your particular problem.
Innovative Pipe Repair Solutions at The Pipe Shark
We offer an accurate assessment of the plumbing services you’ll need to fix the problem. For clogs, we’d recommend hydro-jetting, a trenchless drain cleaning procedure that’s eco-friendly and efficient. Highly pressurized water coming out of a specialized nozzle touches all points in your pipes, dislodging scale deposits, corrosion, rust and debris and sending them out to the nearest sewer municipal treatment plant. Dirt, sand, sludge and waste materials flow away, leaving behind a restored diameter and original flow.
We can repair or replace broken pipes with newer, stronger material without having to dig up long trenches and destroy your precious landscape. Our technicians are fully certified and trained to handle any and all kinds of trenchless technology, from hydro jetting to sewer inspections and pipe bursting process. For example, we use CIPP, or cured in place pipe lining to form a new pipe within the old, ailing pipe, effectively sealing out the damage. Pipe bursting entails the use of hydraulic equipment to drag a new pipe at the exact same location as the old pipe while breaking it apart and sending the surrounding fragments to the nearest soil.
