# Tip 1: How to measure the water pressure at the tap

Nowadays the residents of apartment buildings are a brutal war with municipal services for the provision of paid services.One such service is the water supply.The quality of the provision of this service the utilities is poor.

If you do not take into account the quality of the water itself, many questions arise with respect to pressure residents "at the tap".When water flows poorly impossible to properly wash dishes or take a shower.It appears legitimate desire to measure the pressure in the hot and cold water.To do it yourself, use a pressure gauge - gauge.
2
To make a measurement of the pressure of water in the faucet with hot or cold water, do the following.Take a water gauge with a scale up to 1 kg / cm.Buy a nozzle on the faucet.Find two lengths of rubber hose of the desired diameter.Check integrity of tubing before collecting circuit to test the pressure in the pipes.
3
Secure at the end of one of the segments of the hose nozzle.Put it on tap.At the other end of this
segment of the hose fitting fix gauge.The second pressure gauge port fasten the end of the second segment of the hose;all places where a hose put on the union, fix collars of appropriate size.

4
Secure attachment on the mixer tap.Place the free end of the second segment of the hose so that the water is not flooded apartment (dip in the bath, etc.).Turn on the water at full pressure and register (check) the pressure gauge.

This is the easiest way to determine the pressure in the pipes holodnoyi hot water in the home, which can be used independently.It allows a high degree of accuracy to make the necessary measurements.True, this will have to spend a little bit - to buy the pressure gauge, hose, nozzle, but everything else is simple, and you can get the exact figures.

# Tip 2: How to find the water pressure

Residents of apartment buildings often come with utilities in a brutal war for the quality of their paid services.One of them is water, which provides utilities workers are not always at its best.That is why the best self-measured water pressure at the tap, to check how well the services are provided.
you need
• - gauge;
• - nozzle for pressure gauge;
• - rubber hose;
• - clamps /
Guide
1
use a special device for measuring pressure - pressure gauge.That is the pressure at the tap of the residents there most questions, since the low flow of water is not possible to take a shower or wash the dishes properly.The pressure gauge is the most simple and accessible to each device to determine the pressure in the pipes for hot and cold water in the home.It can deliver a high degree of accuracy to perform the necessary measurements.It should be remembered that this method would require a small cost: in addition to the pressure gauge you need a few extra tools.
2
Get a special attachment to the crane, suitable for use with a water manometer having a scale of 1 kg / cm.From rubber hose cut two rings of suitable diameter.Be sure to check the integrity of tubing before pressure measurements.
3
Attach the nozzle on the end of one of the rubber pieces and put it on tap.At the other end of the segment, set the pressure gauge port.The end of the second segment of a rubber hose, attach to a second pressure gauge port.All seats on the union, which is put on the hose, secure the appropriate size clamps.
4
Secure attachment on the crane.The free end of the second set of the hose so that the water was not able to fill the apartment (drop it in the bath, etc.).Water should be included in the total head and then register (measure) the pressure gauge.
Note
Pay particular attention to the grading scale pressure gauge: The selected model should be suitable for the measurement of pressure in the pipes, installed in apartments.
