Low Water Pressure inside Your Home
Low water pressure may be the result of problems with your plumbing system or it may result from a problem in the pipeline serving your area. If you have low water pressure often, you may have debris in your pipes, water supply and other valves may not be open, or you may have leaks. To address low pressure problems inside your home, you should call a plumber and have your system checked. A sudden drop in water pressure may result from a water main leak or other malfunction. Typically, several homes in an area will be affected.

If a backup occurs
First take action to protect people and valuable property. You may call the city and we’ll check the main sewer. Any blockages found in the main lines will be promptly cleared. If the main line is not blocked, we recommend that you call a plumbing or sewer contractor to check your sewer lateral line. Maintenance and repair of the lateral serving the home or business is the responsibility of property owner/occupant. Regardless of the location of the blockage.
Back up Prevention
Taking notice of what is flushed down toilets and sinks can prevent most backups. DO NOT flush the following materials (or similar items) down toilets/drains. These items can plug the main and cause damage to you and other property owners connected to the main line.
