It's essential to check the water pressure in your home at least twice a year to ensure that it is neither too high nor too low. This will help you anticipate when parts need to be replaced and prevent plumbing damage. Low water pressure can cause shower heads and faucets to leak, while high water pressure can damage the plumbing system. To check your home's water pressure, you will need an inexpensive pressure gauge with female hose threads for easy connection, a rubber gasket to form a tight seal, and the capacity to measure up to 300 pounds per square inch (psi).
Inspecting your home's water pressure is an important part of any responsible homeowner's regular pipe maintenance. This will allow us to detect if there are clogged pipes that could cause low water pressure and make sure that the high pressure hasn't damaged any accessories. If you have questions about how you can prevent pipe damage or loss caused by water pressure, contact your private Nationwide customer service agent for answers. On the other hand, having too much water pressure is dangerous, since it increases the risk of damaging the pipes, joints, fittings, seals and appliances in the pipes in the house and causes water to be wasted.
Regularly checking your home's water pressure is an important part of being a responsible homeowner. With an inexpensive pressure gauge, you can easily monitor your home's water pressure and identify any potential problems before they become worse.
