Does water pressure increase or decrease with depth?

Water pressure increases with increase of depth.

What are some things that one can do to increase the power of their water pressure?

There are many things that one can do to increase the power of their water pressure. One way to increase the power of the water pressure is by increasing the flow of water.

Can you increase water pressure by changing your water meter?

you might depending on how big of a service meter you have,if not you can change the pressure demand valve or pressure regulator depending on whats in your home. actually, increasing the size of the meter (and perhaps the water service line from the main to the home) will provide more flow. The pressure won't change unless there's some sort of regulator as mentioned above. If the static pressure (with no water running on the service) is good and decreases markedly when you run water (that'd be dynamic pressure) you might see an improvement by upsizing the meter and service line. If the static pressure is low and there are no pressure regulators in the line you're sort of stuck with what the utility is providing, unless there's a problem on their end. Where we are the state only requires 20 psi at the meter - if your home is upslope or distant from the meter it may cause difficulties.

Can a flow meter measure my water pressure?

Yes you can use a flow meter to measure your water pressure. They are available at any home improvement retailer.

What happens to boiling water if you increase the pressure?

water boils when the vapour pressure becomes equal to the external pressure. So if we increase the pressure, the rate of boiling will increase. Think of the vapor pressure as the pressure that is needed to force a bubble to the lowers

To increase the rate of solution of a solid in water what do you do?

increase the pressure over the water.

Can you increase your water pressure in house by increasing size of supply line from the meter?

No. Increasing the size of the water supply will only increase the volume of water not the pressure. If you only want more pressure in your shower you could just change your shower head to a water saver one. That will decrease the volume of water while increasing the pressure. But if you want more pressure over all that won't work. You would need to turn up your pressure switch, if you have a well. If you have city water than you don't have a pressure switch and you would need to get a well tank w/ pressure switch installed by a professional. Good Luck!

Does water pressure increase?

Water pressure can increase, can decrease, or can remain constant, depending on the viscisitudes of the prevailing system configuration.

When dealing with water pressure there is no head unless the pipe is blocked off right?

If water is flowing through pipe, no head pressure can build up. Blocking off flow of water will create head pressure in pipe as long as pipe is vertical. A vertical column of water creates head pressure.

How does the water pressure 1 meter beneath the surface of a lake compare with the water pressure 1 meter beneath the surface of a swimming pool?

Water pressure is constant with depth, regardless of the vessel or body of water, because water is practically incompressible.

Why does the boiling point of water increase with increase in pressure?

the boiling time is that temp at which the pressure of water becomes equal to the environment now by increasing environment pressure under which water is boiling the boiling point will also increase

What happens to water pressure as you increase depth?

as water depth increases then so does the water pressure

How much pressure does water increase in a water line going down hill?

Pressure certainly does increase in a water line going down hill. This is because the weight of the water pulls it.

Where is valve located to increase water pressure?

There is no such thing as a valve cannot increase or decrease pressure IT can throttle volume or stop the flow.=One would need a pressure booster pump to increase pressure=

Will a toilet that is running make your water bill increase?

It will if you are on a water meter, as you have to pay for the water that has passed through the water meter. It is also a waste of water, whether on a meter or not. The ball cock valve probably needs a new washer.
