High Water Pressure Causes in Kalamunda and Midland

If you had to rate all of life’s potential home plumbing problems on a scale of 1 to 10 – with 1 being “most annoying” and 10 “least annoying” – how would you rate having to deal with high water pressure?

Somewhere in the 5 – 10 range, right? After all, high water pressure sometimes is a good thing, especially if you’re in the mood for a hot, vigorous shower. But high water pressure also can cause some unwelcome consequences, so it’s better to diagnose the problem early on and then deal with it accordingly. Here’s some timely information to help you in that pursuit:

Is My Water Pressure Higher than it Should Be?

The easiest way to detect high water pressure is through simple visual observation. If you’ve lived in your home even for a short while, you have a pretty good idea of what “normal” is. Another indication of high water pressure is banging inside your pipes. Still, if you want to be sure, you can purchase a water pressure gauge and screw it into the water source nearest your water metre. If the reading exceeds 500 kPai, you should seek professional assistance right away.

What Are the Consequences of High Pressure?

High water pressure, over time, is likely to cause pinhole leaks in one or more of your water pipes. Depending on where those pipes are located, it could be some time before you even know you have a leak and, by then, structural damage could have occurred. High water pressure can also place a great deal of stress on your appliances, thus causing repair problems and even a potentially shorter lifespan.

What Can be Done to Control My Water Pressure?

If the problem is confined to one or more areas of your home, then the solution will depend on the source of the problem, such as your shower-head, toilet, bathroom faucet, and so on. If, on the other hand, you have high water pressure throughout your home, we invite you now to contact the plumbing professionals at Kalamunda Plumbing Group.

First, we’ll identify the source of the problem and do whatever is necessary to reduce the water pressure to an acceptable level. Once such measure is the installation of a water pressure regular on your main water line. They’re designed to maintain safe and reasonable water pressure levels for your full comfort and to help prevent problems with your plumbing, home, appliances, and more.

Testimonials What our
Customers Say

I have given Kalamunda plumbing 5 stars but only because I couldn’t give them 6!Kalamunda Plumbing we’re absolutely fantastic! I had a burst pipe somewhere on my property (3000 sqm) leaking at 1L per second. I tried 4 different plumbing companies before coming across Kalamunda plumbing. The first company made me wait two days and then forgot my booking, the next one couldn’t help me for over a week and the last quoted me $1200 for the job and still had to wait three days. I called Kalamunda plumbing and they arrived the very next day. Anthony found the burst pipe within 20 minutes to the exact location, dug down and repaired the leak. The whole job only took 2 hours and was 1/3 of the price I was quoted.They were professional, helpful and friendly. I will now be a customer for life. I have shared my experience with all that I know in my area.I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you for everything! When the need arises I will be back!

We had a large amount of water bubbling up between the pavers down the side of our house. After a quick call around and a few dead ends I got hold of Kalamunda plumbing. They were able to have someone around quickly, dig down and repair the broken water line. Saving me a fortune in wasted water. Highly recommend and definitely will be using for any future plumbing work.
Trent and Barry from Kalamunda Plumbing did an excellent job. As well as fixing the problem in a timely manner, they gave me some good advice on a number of other potential plumbing issues
Roger Barnett
One thing that I really appreciate is a tradesman that arrives when they say they will, especially when you have taken time off work to have your hot water system replaced.Kalamunda Plumbing were on time and I can't believe how quickly the work was done, and at a reasonable price considering that they did an urgent repair for me. Everything was back to normal again so quickly, mess cleaned up and they adjusted the water temperature so that it was not hot enough to scold me.Well done to everyone involved at Kalamunda Plumbing, greatly appreciated.Regards Russell
