Water Pressure & Water Volume Tests

What is causing pressure or volume problems?

Inadequate water pressure and volume may be caused by several factors including the buildup of minerals and deposits inside a water service, a leak in a service, faulty inside plumbing, or a plugged meter or service. Residents with inadequate water supply or pressure may request that the City of Rochester perform a water pressure and volume test to determine the cause of the problem.

How Can I Request a Test?

Residents may schedule appointments for a water pressure and volume test by calling 311 (outside the City call (585) 428-5990).


There is no fee associated with the testing, however, if the problem is found to involve inside plumbing or the service pipe that connects with the street main, the owner is responsible for correcting the problem.
