      The water pressure in our neighborhood has always been extremely low, especially in the morning when water sprinklers are running throughout the neighborhood. IS THERE ANYTHING WE CAN DO ?

      If the problem is a neighbourhood one I suggest you contact your water authority as it is their problem. If you live in an elevated area the mains pressure may be too low. Under our local regulations the authority must supply a minimum of 15 metres head (150kPa) under peak load. If the supply is ok in low demand periods it is a main supply problem. Good luck, Mossy

      Buy a small packaged booser pump system, (complete with pump, controls, and tank), and install it where the water enters the residence. This will give your house adequate pressure.: The water pressure in our neighborhood has always been extremely low, especially in the morning when water sprinklers are running throughout the neighborhood.
