homeowner should learn how to test household water
pressure. Periodically testing the water pressure can
not only detect household leaks, but it can also find symptoms
of potential water system problems for the household. The
process of testing a home's water pressure is not expensive or
Unfortunately, many homeowners do not test the water
pressure until there's a noticeable difference in their home's
water flow. A little preventive maintenance ensures an even
water flow, catches leaks early and saves the homeowner money on
costly water damage and repairs. Water Pressure Regulators are
recommended to be installed when pressure exceeds 60 psi.
Testing Water Pressure
1. Purchase a water pressure test gauge. Homeowners can
go to their local home supply store such as Lowe's or Home Depot
and pick one up rather inexpensively. Home Depot sells one for
2. Locate a functioning outside water faucet. It is important
that the faucet is properly sealed and does not leak. Using an
excessively leaking faucet may skew the results.
3. Attach the water pressure gauge to the outside faucet and
turn the water on fully. The gauge will read the water pressure
reading for the house. Depending on the area, house water
pressure can range between 40 psi and 100 psi.
4. Turn off the outside faucets and test the water pressure for
each level of the home. Go inside the house and test the water
pressure in the bathroom shower, kitchen sink and any of the
area where water runs. Remove either the shower head or the
faucet nozzle and attach the water pressure gauge. Turn on the
water full blast and test the pressure.
5. Narrow the area of the problem. If your pressure readings are
not consistent, by attaching the water pressure gauge to various
faucets in the house, you should be able to pinpoint the cause
of the pressure variance.
