Constant Water Pressure Systems – How They Work and Why You Should Buy One

The constant water pressure system has been in use since as early as the 1990s, and it continues to be one of the most popular residential water pressure systems on the market today. Constant pressure systems work by keeping your water system at a constant flow, allowing you to use your sprinklers, faucets, showers, washing machines and dishwashers at their maximum capacity throughout the day and night.

This guide explains how constant water pressure systems work, discusses different models available, and outlines some of the benefits you’ll enjoy if you choose to install one in your home or business. 

All you need to know about constant water pressure systems

If you're tired of hearing everything looks fine when it comes to getting a plumbing inspection of your home or business, then listen up. We’re going to let you in on a little secret: there is one thing you can fix that's guaranteed to get any plumber to take notice.

That one thing is installing a constant water pressure system in your home or business. What exactly is a constant water pressure system? Think of it as an invisible bubble around your property that prevents outside faucets from interfering with inside faucets. Say you have a garden hose hooked up to your house, if someone turns on their sink, they’re not likely to notice anything out of place; however, if someone uses their shower upstairs, they may suddenly realize there’s no water running down their drain.

That’s what constantly low water pressure can do to a household: drains go dry at random times throughout the day and night. Constant water pressure systems solve that problem by providing even water distribution among all faucets so nothing goes dry. 

Water Pressure Systems Benefits

Constant water pressure systems maintain flow rates at certain levels, no matter how long you run them. That’s great news for households that make heavy use of their faucets, like when you have multiple bathroom showers going at once. Since traditional pressure systems depend on a storage tank to maintain enough water supply, they eventually lose pressure if too much water is used over a short period of time. Maintaining adequate pressure in these circumstances is one of constant-pressure systems biggest benefits for homeowners.

Constant-pressure faucets are also particularly beneficial in residential areas where spikes in use during events like cookouts or ball games can cause sudden drops in available water pressure. Because you don’t have to worry about increases in water usage lowering pressure, your home is always supplied with a steady stream of water. As it stands, constant-pressure systems make up only a small percentage of installed faucet systems throughout America; however, with rising rates of frequent showers due to an increase in shower time for health reasons and increased showering frequency because of low-flow laws, experts predict we will see an uptick in sales over the next few years as more homeowners become aware of their benefits.

Understanding how it works

The benefit of a constant water pressure system is that it provides an even, steady stream of water to your faucets. That means no more shooting blasts of scalding hot or freezing cold water while you’re washing dishes or taking a shower. It also means less wasted energy; your home will be cooler in summer and warmer in winter because you won’t have wastefully high or low temperatures coming out of your taps anymore.

If a constant pressure system is something you’d like to install in your home, make sure to call a professional for assistance; these systems need to be set up correctly for them to work properly. Doing it wrong could cause serious damage to your pipes—not something you want as winter begins! 

Choosing the right system for your needs

The first step to buying a water pressure system is choosing one that will fit your needs. There are multiple companies offering many different water pressure systems, but not all of them are created equal. Do your research on these systems before you buy so you know what features you need for your home and can get an idea of what different brands offer. Whether you're looking for something budget-friendly or high-end, it's important to make sure that whatever you choose will provide years of quality performance.

Find a company with a good reputation because they are more likely to be honest about their products if something goes wrong in order to keep their reputation in good standing among future customers. Also, look for companies that have been around for a while, as that shows that they have good customer service, which is important when you're trying to set up an entirely new system for your home. Consider what kind of features you need based on how much water pressure you want throughout your house: If you just want enough water pressure for basic uses like showers and toilets, a basic system is probably enough. However, some people may find that even small tasks can be very difficult without adequate water pressure at all times of day.


There are many benefits of owning a water pressure system. Not only can it add aesthetics to your home, but it also takes out all of those inconveniences such as fluctuating water pressure or inconsistent water temperature.

Plus, they come in a variety of different styles, materials, shapes and sizes so you can choose one that best fits your needs.
