Let Petro take care of over pressurized water pipes in your house

You might think that high water pressure is a good thing if it means enjoying your showers more, but high water pressure can actually cause leaks, damage pipes, and waste water. If you have multiple leaks in your home, leaks that come and go, or running toilets, it could be a sign that your water pressure is too high. If you experience a sudden increase in the pressure of the water coming out of your faucets or hear banging in your pipes, you should have your home's plumbing system inspected right away. Ignoring high water pressure can increase your water bills and cause damage to your plumbing system that may be expensive to repair.

Water release and drainage.

High water pressure impacts your entire plumbing system and is not a simple DIY fix. To prevent injury, costly errors, or damage, you should have a trained professional inspect and lower your water pressure.

Draining and refilling your plumbing system needs to be done in a careful step-by-step process to avoid causing damage to appliances such as your water heater. Attempting to repair a single fixture or shutoff valve could overwhelm your system or leave the underlying problem unfixed. There may also be other problems in your plumbing system, such as air in your pipes, that need to be addressed during the repair.

This complex job is best left to a licensed plumber who can make sure it's done right the first time.

Pressure relief valves.

Have you had your water pipes check for high pressure?

Your water pressure is first impacted by the water that's entering your home. For example, if you're on the bottom of a hill or are in a lower floor of a tall condominium that needs to pump water to upper floors, you may have higher than normal water pressure. On the other hand, if you're on the end of an overloaded branch of the city plumbing system, you may get low water pressure.

Your interior plumbing can also impact your water pressure. A multi-story home could have uneven pressure between floors, or a bathroom that's far away from the mainline may not be getting enough pressure. Causes of these imbalances could be poor planning during initial construction, additions or renovations to your home that didn't properly consider your plumbing needs.

Petro Home Services’ team of plumbing experts can work to identify exactly where and why your water pressure is out of balance. We will the install booster or reducing valves as needed to regulate your overall home water pressure to ensure that you get proper flow without risking damage to your fixtures or wasting water.

Need help?

If you suspect your water pressure isn't right, there's probably a good reason for your suspicion. Don't risk damage to your home by delaying an inspection.
