  • Often low pressure is confused with low flow. Sometimes the pressure is adequate but water cannot travel from source to destination as fast as it is being demanded. A simple solution that I have used for many of my customers is to install a pressure tank typically used on a water well system on the cold water side of your hot water heater. This allows for a more even flow and allows pressure to equalize easier in undersized or stopped up plumbing. This technique is extremely useful in a situation where filters or water softners are present as it allows water to pass through the obstruction when water is not being demanded and be ready for use when needed. Example....someone taking a shower in one part of the house and flushing a toilet in another. That momentarily extra demand is compensated by the tank and the person in the shower does not even notice.

      You sounded really smart until you said "hot" water heater. Its a water heater. If the water were hot it wouldn't need heated. If anything its a cold water heater. But water heater will do.
