Why is my water pressure so low?

Low pressure in the water lines can be caused by several factors. Check your faucets to see if the problem is isolated to one or two faucets, and not the entire house. If it is isolated, check to see if the screen on the faucet is clogged. If it is clear, the piping to the faucet could be clogged, or the faucet itself could have a buildup of minerals in it.

If the entire house/building has low water pressure, it could indicate a leak on the line, a meter problem, or buildup in the service line or house plumbing due to age, etc. Contact the water department customer service at 903-984-5081 to have the meter and service line to the main checked. If these are found to be in good condition, you will need to contact a plumber for further assistance.
