Improving the water pressure in your home will lead to more water for laundry, dishes, bathing and other activities. Many factors can cause low water pressure, including clogged pipes, galvanized pipes with deposits or incorrectly sized pipes.
In some cases, as when clogged pipes are causing poor water pressure, you should contact a professional to repair or replace the pipes. In some cases, you can try tackling the problem on your own by adjusting the pressure-reducing valve on the supply line. To adjust the valve, loosen the lock nut, turn the adjustment screw clockwise to increase the amount of pressure and then retighten the nut. As another option, you can hire a professional to install a water pressure booster system.
