Why Does My Home Have Low Water Pressure?

Monday, April 19th, 2021

sunny-plumber-doorwayYou turn on the shower, and the water flow that comes from the showerhead is weak. It doesn’t change, and you’re having a hard time getting clean. What’s happening, and what can you do to fix it?

If the low water pressure is only coming from a single tap in the house, such as the showerhead we just mentioned above, then the problem is a local one. You may need to clean out the aerator for the faucet or have repairs done to remove buildup in the pipes. If the water pressure is low all around the house, and no matter which faucet you turn on you’re getting only a trickle of water, then there is probably something wrong deeper down in the general plumbing system that needs to be addressed.

Below are a few of the more common causes for low water pressure occurring throughout a house.

3 Reasons You Need a Water Softener

Monday, June 29th, 2020

sunny-techniciansYou want to believe that the water coming from your faucets is of a high quality. How do you know that this is the case, though? Have you had your water tested? If not, that’s an option to consider. However, not all problems require testing to be diagnosed. Take hard water, for example. Hard water is a very common problem. It’s also a problem that’s very commonly ignored. That’s unfortunate, because our plumbers can help you to resolve the problem.

The solution is a whole-house water softener. Our Las Vegas water quality experts will make sure that your water softener is the right fit for your home. When you use a whole-house system, you don’t even have to think about what you’re doing. The water is softened as it enters the system, and you just add more softening salt to the brine tank as needed. More on that below. Just remember that you need a professional plumber to install it.
