I have just got my house inspected and the inspector told me that the water pressure was very low ( barely meets the code). My new construction home has a pressure of 42 psi ( code is 40). What can I do to improve this? Is there anything that I can get the builder to do before closing?

Default water pressure

The builder initially said that it was a city issue - not theirs....is that true?

It sounds like a city problem but i would have the plumber check for a slableak and have him check the preasure on the nieghbors house. Also a plumber can tell you a lot more about it so I would talk to him. Also check to make sure no water is running when testing pressure.

could it be that there is lot of air in the lines vs water--maybe bleeding at the nearest fire hydrant might help
