Low pressure or no water?
When you turn your taps on, you can expect your water pressure to have enough force and volume to easily fill a glass or kettle, for example.
If your water pressure has dropped so there's only a trickle coming out of the tap, or has gone off completely, don’t panic.
Here's what to check
- Check with your neighbours - If you're on a common supply pipe, check if your neighbours are carrying out any works on their property that may impact your water supply.
- Do you have cold water but no hot water? - Check your cold water tap in your kitchen. If you've got cold water but not hot water you have an issue with your internal pipe work which a plumber should be able to help with. Find local tradesmen who can help.
- Check your internal stop tap for an airlock in your pipes - Air blockages in pipes can cause a reduction in water pressure. Watch our short video below on how to release this.
- Check your house for leaks - If your neighbours aren't experiencing it's worth checking your house for any burst/leaking pipes which could cause a drop in pressure. Click here for our guide to locating household leaks.
