Water's Good

Reclaiming Your Water Pressure

Posted On 06/06/2024 By iSpring Water Systems


Tired of waiting forever for your bathtub to fill? Unable to truly get clean and rinse the shampoo from your hair and the body wash from your skin because of the weak stream of water trickling from your showerhead? Dishwasher and washing machine taking double the time it should to complete a cycle? Exhausted from using extra elbow grease to scrub dishes instead of being able to blast the grime away with your kitchen faucet?


Low water pressure is an annoyance more than anything and can be extremely frustrating. However, correcting low water pressure is typically an easy fix. Start by testing your home’s water pressure using a water pressure test gauge. If it reads anything less than 40 pounds per square inch (PSI), then you need to get to the root of the issue, and iSpring can assist you with most any water pressure-related issue including:

  • installing a water booster pump
  • monitoring for water leaks 
  • reducing blockage  
  • descaling hard water to prevent scale build-up in pipes and appliances


Boosting Water Pressure  

Whether you are on city or well water, you might consider installing a booster pump, as sometimes gravity and friction are the cause of water pressure problems and can only be helped with the assistance of a water booster. Another concern that our water booster pump can address is if the water source is far away from your house, which will result in it having to travel further through the service line, producing lower water pressure.  


Our PMP1000 water booster pump is installed where the main line enters your house, so the water pressure on every tap and appliance is improved. It is designed to boost w. Iter pressure up to 120 psi and optimizes water filtration performance on high-capacity reverse osmosis (RO) membranes and commercial RO systems. It is also a great option for systems with low feed water pressure. 


Monitoring for Water Leaks 

Leaking pipes can also cause water pressure to drop, even if the leak is seemingly insignificant. To assist you in determining whether you currently have a leak and to monitor for future leaks, our LS43 water leak detector is the perfect product. After being effortlessly installed on your whole house water pipe, if a leak is detected, it will activate an alarm and shut off the water supply to prevent flooding.


If you are experiencing low water pressure while using a Reverse Osmosis (RO) or under-the-sink water filtration system, then we offer our ALS1 water leak detector. This functions similarly to our LS43 and works with a shut-off valve to protect you from costly water damage due to leaks or improper function. However, it will only monitor the single filtration system. 


Both of these systems will not only save the headache from a costly water leak but will also help you identify a water leak, no matter how small it may be. 


Using a Spin Down Sediment Filter to Prevent Blockage

If you have concerns about blockage from sediment, rust, silt, dirt, worms and other debris causing water pressure slowdown, then you should consider installing our WSP50GR spin down sediment filter with pressure gauge. This filter monitors water pressure at the point of entry, reminding the filter to change when the water pressure goes low. It takes the workload off of the finer filters that follow behind it and helps create a multi-layer gradient filtration system for better filtration results and longer filter life. 


Combating Hard Water Scale Build-Up 

If you have hard water and suspect that scale build-up is clogging your pipes, a water softener is a great solution. Our WCS45KG whole house water softener treats up to 45,000 grains of hardness, removing calcium and magnesium from your water at the point of entry. The system calculates and designs an economical and effective soft water treatment plan based on the water source and the treated water volume. It also features a pre-filled, quality ion exchange resin, corrosion-resistant and rust-free fiberglass tank, durable automatic control valve, and 1″ NPT inlet/outlet connector.


Our ED2000S electronic water descaler prevents scale build-up without modifying your pipes. It uses a microchip to create an electromagnetic wave that disrupts ions, preventing them from forming scale. This is an eco-friendly solution to the problems caused by hard water without the need for chemicals or salt by preventing scale deposits from forming and allowing the existing scale to break down. Not only does it help prevent clogging in your pipes from scale build-up, but it also improves your overall water quality, protects your pipes from future damage caused by scale, and extends the life of your appliances. 


Another product we have to help fight scale build-up is our WDS150K anti-scale, whole-house water conditioning system. This system features a patented scale inhibitor that sequesters calcium and magnesium, preventing your pipes from scaling and clearing partially clogged pipes. It employs a filter media that coats the surface of your pipes, which helps stabilize chlorine and prevents it from reacting with the metal pipe. This system is tested by an independent third party to meet NSF 42/60 standards and is capable of filtering up to 250,000 gallons of water and can last up to 12 months, depending on inline water quality. 


If you install water filtration systems at home, It’s important to regularly replace the filters to maintain optimal water pressure. When water filters are full and need to be replaced, they can easily become clogged and cause a drop in water pressure. To avoid this issue, make sure to change your water filters as needed. Regular maintenance is a simple and effective way to keep your water flowing smoothly.


No matter the issue with your home’s water pressure, we are here to help you find a solution so you can begin enjoying the water pressure you deserve.
