Unless You Have A Booster Pump....

In reply to Water Pressure by Mike Duran on June 21st, 2002 09:32 AM [Go to top of thread]

The water pressure on the upper floors will always be less than on the lower floors. About 4 psi less per floor under ststic (no flow conditions) assuming you have standard 8 foot ceilings. So if your pressure is less on the lower floor, it has to be due to a restriction in a line or the effect of "water saver" fixtures.
Is this only on 1 or two fixtures? If they are on the same branch, it could be those are being fed by a smaller pipe or there is a restriction in that one pipe.
Any further information would help
