2. Leaking Pipes: While leaking faucets are kind of annoying, it’s not necessarily serious. Leaking pipes can lead to a much bigger mess. They start because of a weakness in the pipeline. It could be a tiny pinhole, a seam that’s not 100% sealed, and any other defect. High pressure can elevate that small leak to a burst pipe without any warning. A burst pipe could flood the house and cause a lot of damage to not only the house but your possessions as well.
3. Banging of Knocking Noises: Have you ever heard a loud knocking sound or bang in your home, and didn’t know what it was? Especially after you’ve turned off a faucet? No, it’s not a ghost coming for a visit. This sound is the result of the high-pressure water stopping suddenly as you close up the faucet. This sudden stop with such high pressure is what might lead to the leaking pipes we mentioned above.
4. Premature Appliance Failure: There are several appliances we need water for, such as the washing machine, dishwasher, refrigerator, ice maker, water filtration system, and more. All of these appliances can be damaged because of the high water pressure they have to endure every day. This could easily take years off their life, forcing you to replace them much sooner than necessary.
