The issues that arise when we have high water pressure have a tendency of creeping up on us. Early detection is key. Here’s a few reasons to think about high water pressure in your home:
It’s hurting your pipes. Water is deceptively powerful. It does its damage over long periods of time and by the time we notice something’s wrong, the damage is already done. High water pressure flowing and stopping in the pipes causes long-term damage, leading to small leaks (which can mean black mold and structural damage) and even pipe bursts.
Wear and tear on appliances and fixtures. You know that state-of-the-art washing machine you just traded your last paycheck for? High water pressure is an appliance killer. It’ll cut the lifespan of expensive appliances and you’ll be replacing them sooner than you think. And this wear and tear applies to smaller fixtures like faucets, shower heads and toilets.
It can damage your water heater. When water heats up, it expands. Most water heaters have a thermal expansion tank to help take on that extra volume. But if your water pressure is consistently high, your water heater might run out of space for that expanding water to go. You can imagine what happens next — it’s not pretty (or cheap).
Wasted water and higher utility bills. When your water pressure is too high, you’re letting out more water every time you turn on a faucet. All of that adds up in the long run. If you live in a place where you have to pay for the water you use, high pressure could end up costing you.
