Home water systems are usually quite simple designs – there’s a pressurised water main (or property service), a hot water system and a series of pipes connected to the bathrooms that deliver and drain the water. But even with the simplest design there are a million things that can go wrong.
You turn on the bath taps and nothing comes out from the blocked pipes, there’s no hot water for the shower you were looking forward to, or the taps just dribble and shudder with low water pressure. There could be a number of causes for a problem with your home’s water system. These range from valve malfunctions in the pipes and glitches in the hot water system itself, to a blockage or kink in the water supply further up stream.
There are some simple solutions you can try out yourself. The pilot light may have gone out on your hot water system, which may be able to be re-lit, or over tightening a tap and releasing it quickly might free up a stuck tap washer or change its sealing position. However, these short-term fixes may not solve the problem for good.
Major or recurring problems with your water supply can be a big drain on your lifestyle, but there is an easy way to fix them without draining your wallet.
