What Could be Affecting your Water Pressure?

Most people have experienced the frustration of low water pressure, a shower turning into a nightmare because the hose pipe is in use or dishes are being washed. Anchor Pumps aims to remedy all your issues when it comes to pumps and water pressure.

One reason why your water pressure might be low is if more households are being connected to your main water supply so there is less pressure. This increase in usage can be attributed to the rise in population.

Old pipes will have mineral deposits in them and therefore their diameter will be reduced, also affecting the water pressure. Both of these issues can be fixed, a booster pump for example can assist in improving water pressure whereas shower pumps can enhance the water flow of a shower, should the shower system be the main issue in regards to water pressure in the home. Take a browse through our pumps online to discover which pump is best for your requirements.

As a nation we spend a lot of money on our water bills, and with a few simple changes we can save much needed water…

 -When brushing your teeth don’t leave the tap running as this can waste around six litres per minute.

-Fill a jug with cold water and place in the fridge so you don’t have to run the tap and waste water to get a cold glass of water.

-Wash fruit and vegetables in a bowl so less water is wasted. Alternatively, you could use a colander to wash more than one at a time.

-Shower instead of taking a bath as this will save about a third of water in comparison.
