Low water pressure can be caused by several factors. (1) Someone has closed, or partially closed the main water valve where the water enters the building. (2) The city has partially, or totally shut down the water main for a major water main break or leak repair. (3) There is a break or leak on the water service line to your residence. (4) The water softener is malfunctioning and causing a reduction in water flow. Most softeners are equipped with a manual bypass valve.
