    Very low water pressure 6th Mar 18 at 2:22 PM
    Hi,

    I recently begun a rental tenancy at a private property only to find the water pressure, most noticeable in the bath, sub optimal.

    It's literally just a trickle and means u spend double the time in the shower!

    So far the property management company are busy writing their report.

    My question is this: is there a minimum or legal requirement for utility companies or landlords to provide a minimum level of water pressure? What are my options?

    Many thanks
