Low water pressure
Does it take forever to fill up your big spaghetti pot? Low water pressure is frustrating and sometimes easily fixed. According James, removing the aerator and cleaning out the gunk may do the trick but if it doesn’t, that’s probably a sign this may be a DIY improvement to leave to the pros. “From time to time, low water pressure and the causes behind it could be indications of greater problems within a plumbing system. It could be a fractured pipe, an eroded water line or a water leak in the system,” says James.
