Plumbing courses could help address shower pressure shortfalls

Plumbing courses could help trained professionals to deal with reduced water pressure, in light of the recent actions of some water companies.

The Mirror reports that mains pressure is falling in some places as suppliers aim to reduce the amount of strain put on older pipework and consequently prevent leaks from occurring.

However, this is putting boilers under renewed strain due to a lack of water entering the system at the desired pressure.

Professionals who have attended plumbing courses covering the issue of water pressure may be able to provide a solution.

Industry regulator Ofwat tells the Mirror that many companies warn their customers in advance if they are facing a need to cut the mains pressure.

This could allow them to seek the advice of a trained professional, in order to make sure their boiler will not be affected.

However, a spokesman for the Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors, an industry body with more than 1,500 members across England and Wales, tells the publication: "It's unacceptable for firms to be able to drop any element of public service without explaining the potential impact."
