I have the opposite problem.  Water pressure in our area is too low.  Is there such a thing as a "pressure increasing valve" I wonder?  

 

If not then at least I've learned that you can use the word "****", on here, as long as it's part of another word, such as "stopcock".  But on it's own it's obviously a swear word, which is a pity for anyone that wishes to discuss male birds.  

Are you sure that is a problem in the whole area or just your house? If it is really in the whole area start with the supplier. If it's just your house check all valves and pipes for blockage or leaks.

No simple magic valve that increases water pressure.

Thanks, 

I was really curious, closing the stop tap a bit does not really lower the pressure while all taps are closed. But it could possibly create a short moment when the pressure in the house is slightly lowered when the tap is running. Then making it easier to tighten it in the brief moment before that pressure is back at maximum again. 

 

When water pressure breaks equipment or the leak is at joints or connectors then reducing the supply won't solve the problem. 

A good point dutch, yes, I think that would explain what was happening.

Too true. You would have to say "male hen",  I suppose.
