Why would a person get low water pressure with only their hot water?
Check the water valve on top of the water heater. If it is off, you may have an easy problem to solve. You also may have mineral buildup in the hot water pipes. How old is the house?
well most homes should have 60 to 80 psi. If you have a well and you only have a two story home then I would set the pump pressure to 60 psi, if you have city water and your pressure is above 80 , I would recommend installing a pressure reducer valve with shut offs on both sides so a person can service it in the future.
As you refer to "the meter", you are apparently on city water. Your meter will be near the PRV or Pressure Regulating Valve. This is a fitting on the main incoming water line with a bell shaped top with a threaded shaft and 2 nuts on it. As these devices get older they often reduce pressure. If yours is in good shape you can increase your pressure by adjusting these nuts. A new one can…
Depends how deep the water is. I do know that if you were to be an evil littering person with no respect for marine life and you dropped a cola can into the ocean, then it would eventually implode due to the water pressure. DO NOT EVER EVER DO THIS. IT IS A THEORETICAL COLA CAN ONLY. SAVE THE TURTLES!
You had a shower system that required 2.5 bar pressure to operate however the incoming pressure is only 2 bar max on a Dia50 nominal pipe how can you increase the pressure without pumps?
To increase the pressure you would have to reduce the diameter of the pipe. Half the diameter would give you twice as much pressure. Therefore to get 25 percent more pressure you would reduce the diameter by 25 percent giving you 37.5. Be careful though, this only increases the water pressure not the water flow rate.
Ebola can contaminate basic water, but only for a couple of minutes at most. The water would need to have the same saline levels as the human body, or the host cell would build pressure until it ruptured. When the cell ruptures, the virus would die. If a person were handling bloody water in an environment ebola was present, it would still be prudent to take precautions.
What would you do is every person were only allowed to use 20 gallons of water per day how would your life change?
Not only in the laboratory, also at higher altitudes. The boiling point of water depends on the pressure. "100 degrees" is only at some pressure defined as standard pressure. At high altitudes (cities like La Paz, for example), it takes longer to cook food - because water boils at a lower temperature. Not only in the laboratory, also at higher altitudes. The boiling point of water depends on the pressure. "100 degrees" is only at…
A person can only breath air that has the same pressure has his or her surroundings. Under water, the pressure will go up fairly quickly (every 10 meter / 33 feet of water exert the same pressure as that on the surface) and the scuba gear will make sure the diver gets air with the same pressure as that of the surroundings.
Density of water per unit volume ie. g/cm3 * depth of water (cm). Answer will be in g/sq cm. Density of water is approximately 1g / cm3 therefore pressure at the bottom of a dam wall with 1m of water = 0.1kg / sq cm. Note: this is only valid at the bottom of the wall, half way up the 1m of water the pressure would be 0.05kg / sq cm. At the very surface…
Why does your newly installed water pressure valve howl when you lower the water pressure and the only way you can get it to stop is by increasing the water pressure more than it should be?
You get a pressure of about 1 atmosphere (or bar) for every 10 meters. Note: The pressure has nothing to do with the volume of water behind it. It only depends on the depth or head. 1 meter = 9,794.7 pa 35 meters = 342.815 kpa 35 meters = 114.83 feet = 49.72 psi These figures are only for water in the tank.
Why would a 2 story house with 2 water heaters have hot and cold water in the downstairs bath but only hot in the kitchen and no water upstairs?
The deeper the water, the higher the pressure. This is due to how much weight is on the water. At the top of the ocean, the only thing above the water pushing down on it is air. However, at the bottom of the ocean you have not only the air but the entire body of water above it pushing down. This creates a greater pressure at lower depths.
What would cause your water pressure switch to come on about every 15 seconds when the water is turned on?
I was asking this same question and was told that an air pocket forms in the pressure tank . pressure tank must have water drained completely out,than turn your water back on,I did this and it went back to normal,accept when it kicks on now,its only stays on about half the time,then what it use to normally stay on.
The water is pumped upwards by the atmospheric pressure acting on the surface of the water in the well. That is only strong enough to support a column of water that is 10m tall.

Does gravity affect density's properties For example if there was no gravity would objects that typically sink in water not?
Gravity may cause the density of a medium to vary with depth. For example because we have gravity the pressure in water is much higher 1 kilometer below the surface than just 1 meter. This is because the water at 1 kilometer down also has to carry the water above it. If there was no gravity water would not fall down, and as such there would be no pressure (and thus no density difference). Without…
Water towers use the gravitational head to provide constant pressure. A pump is used to pump the water up to the water tower. If a pump was the only means to provide pressure, the pressure at your faucet would be highly variable. The outlet flow rate of a pump is limited, so it wouldn't be able to keep up with short term fluctuations in water consumption. You could build a pump system that would instantaneously…
How does the water pressure 1m below the surface of the small pond compare with the water pressure 1m below the surface of a huge lake?
How can you get better hot water pressure with galvanized pipes Is there any other way except putting new water pipes like a plumber told me?
"density" is not a material. eggs cannot boil faster in denisity, because density is not a noun, it is not a substance, it is a trait/characteristic of substances. Do you mean in dense water? How would that work? The only way to get denser than usual water would be to keep it under pressure. I certainly hope you aren't going to try to cook eggs in pressure cooker.
The boiling point of water depends only on pressure, not ambient temperature. The only correlation between climate temperature and boiling point would come about from the fact that cold climates in temperate parts of the Earth are usually at higher elevations than warmer climates and therefore have lower atmospheric pressure.
Water pressure increases with depth, so the deepest spot in the ocean is probably the location of the greatest water pressure. The Marianas trench is the deepest place (10,911m) and the pressure is 108.6 MPa. For a comparason, the standard sea-level air pressure is only 101.325 kPa, or about 1000 less.
Does a water meter only measure the time that the water is flowing past it assuming that the water is always flowing at a constant pressure?
No. Most water meters are of the positive displacement type. They meter actual volume, and are pressure independent. Also note that water flow and pressure are not the same thing. You can have high flow with low pressure, and also low flow with high pressure, depending on the size of the pipe and/or openings (such as valves) and the pressure.
The Organisms are full of water on their insides and as water is incompressible the pressure on the inside of their bodies is the same as the seawater pressure on the outside, they can not feel the great pressure, it makes no difference to them. It is only when you send a submarine down deep that that the pressure matters as the centre of the submarine is filled with AIR which can be compressed.
How do you get outside hydrants to provide water without running a faucet in house to reduce pressure in tank and turn on the well pump?
PSI stands for Pounds per Square Inch, it is a measurement of pressure. You can't "add psi". The only way to increase your water pressure is with a booster pump. You cannot add pressure, you have to mechanically add a force to pressurize the water (Usually by forcing it into a tank with an air bladder).
