What’s Causing Your Tap Trouble?

From the local market, you walk into the kitchen with a bag full of fresh ingredients. You’re excited to prepare tonight’s dinner but you turn the tap and nothing comes out of it. After numerous twists and turns, nothing happens. What’s behind your tap trouble?

Don’t be alarmed just yet. Check the isolation valve; maybe somebody just turned the water supply off. The valve is usually installed close to the water meter. In apartment complexes, it is usually a standalone system.

Ask Your Supplier

Maybe the water company shut the supply to your home due to an unpaid bill or a necessary repair. If you’re sure that all bills have been paid and that there is no work being done within your proximity, contact the water supply company. They may have made a little mistake.

Ask Your Neighbors

Knowing if you are the only person with tap trouble or not can give you an idea of what is really happening. Ask your neighbors if there’s water running from their taps. If they’re experiencing the same problem, it can be an indication for a wide-reaching issue. If not, focus on your own plumbing system.

Probable Causes

Leaves, roots, twigs and all sorts of debris could get into your drains. They can scratch, puncture or crack the pipes where they move, creating leaks. If there’s a huge leak, the water pressure will drop and the amount of water that reaches the tap decreases.

Low-quality materials and installation and terrain movement are also probable causes. If your water pressure is constantly low, contact a local plumbing company to run an inspection and to make the appropriate action.
