One of the most common causes for weak water pressure from sinks is clogging. In many cases, your sink water pressure can be weakened due to a blockage in the pipes leading to it. This could be caused by the accumulation of sediment or other materials such as hair and soap scum. Clogs are easy enough to fix with basic plumbing tools, but if you’re not comfortable dealing with them yourself, it’s best to call us at BM Sewer and Drain Cleaning.

Another possible cause for weak water pressure from sinks is water line damage. If there are any leaks or breaks in the water lines leading to your sink, this can reduce water pressure. To fix this issue, you’ll need to repair or replace the water lines. Again, a licensed plumber is the best option for this type of job.

Finally, water pressure from your sink can be weakened due to sediment build-up near the faucet. Over time, minerals in water can accumulate on pipe walls and cause water flow restrictions. You may be able to remove this buildup yourself with a water softener, or you may need to hire a plumber to do it for you.

Now that we’ve discussed the potential causes of water pressure weakening from sinks, let’s talk about how to keep your sink water pressure strong. The best way to do this is by regularly inspecting and cleaning your water lines. When in doubt your best bet is to contact us at BM Sewer and Drain Cleaning 716-803-4065.
