Check With Neighbors
Before you call for plumbing services related to low water pressure, check with your neighbors. If they also have low water pressure, it could be a municipal issue. The city could be flushing hydrants, or there could be a water main break nearby. You could also call the city water department to ask if there's an issue near your home.
Determine Which Fixtures Are Affected
