             SLOW OR NO RUNNING WATER

 Reason for slow or no running water.

Things that cause your water to run slow or not at all;

 

1)      Stopped up faucet filter or aerator filter.

2)      Stopped up showerhead.

3)      Broken faucet washer.

4)      Bad faucet stem.

5)      Clogged toilet fill valve. 

 

Below are some examples showing the the effect of a stopped up plumbing fixture or pipe.

Aerator or spout filters

Aerator do three things: They soften water splash, filter water, and conserver water.

When aerator gets clogged, it is usually best to buy a new one and change it.

However, they can be taken apart and be cleaned.  

Note illustration below:

 

 

Removing aerators

Unscrew turning counter clockwise.

When taking an aerator apart, set the rubber, screen and screen holder on the counter so that parts go back the same way they came out. Wash the screen to clear debris.

Water filters                                                                

Most water filters have changeable cartridges always best to put in new cartridge.

 

 

Shower heads

Many shower are not repairable, they may need to be replaced. However, for a temporary fix shower heads can be taken off and back wash, meaning one can place the face of the shower head at forceful running water and clear out some of the sediment.

 

 

Sink faucets and Shower body valves

The faucets or shower body valve systems can become worn and may inhabit proper operation of the system in several ways, restricting the waters flow through the faucet or shower system.

Some of the things that can occur are:

a)      The washer or rubber seat can brake loose inside and block the water ways.

b)      Or the stem can come apart and reseat itself in an improper position. 

 

 

Toilet fill valve: little or no water

Toilet fill valves can get stopped up by way of sediments in the town or city water supply.

Many fill valves such as the popular Fluid Master have kits sold at hardware supply stores that will enable one to replace the top section of the fill valve so that water will flow freely again.

However, most plumbers will not hesitate to change the whole fill valve because it is a better guarantee the stoppage will not recur.

Other example:

Clogged galvanized pipe, valve off behind toilet, valve off in basement,  leaking hot water heater, leaking boiler or boiler heat exchanger, work in street, bad house main valve, frozen pipes.
