Atlanta Low Water Pressure: How to Detect a Plumbing Leak

More than just inconvenient, low water pressure can mean your Atlanta area home may have a water leak. Depending on the severity the plumbing leak may be affecting just one room, the bathroom or kitchen, or the entire home. 

If the low water pressure is in just one room, it may be an easy fix, such as a blockage caused by mineral deposits. Or it could be a small leak behind the wall. 

Atlanta Low Water Pressure: How to Detect a Plumbing Leak - Water Leak Detection Blog - Orlando, Florida | Leak Doctor - tap-791172_1920If the pressure is affecting a couple of rooms or the entire property, the problem can be hidden in the main water supply. 

“There are several things that can cause a low pressure and volume problem. Some are easy to spot while others are hidden. The first thing I would look at are all of the shut off valves from the street into your home. You need to make sure these valves are in the full open position. Two critical valves to look at are the ones on either side of the water meter,” according to Ask The Builder

How can I determine if a leak is inside or outside?

Turn the shut-off at your house to the off position. If the meter stopped spinning, this is an indication that the leak is inside the home. If the meter continued to spin, this indicates that the leak is outside the home.
