This spring the water main on my street will be replaced. Will this have any affect on water pressure in the house?

More details: I live in Oak Park, IL and we have low water pressure throughout the village. Last fall I replaced all the galvanized pipe with copper, and this greatly improved the situation, but pressure is still on the low side. The line coming into the house is either lead or galvanized (house is from 1917).

Your pressure will only increase if the city chooses to increase the line pressure (sometimes kept low to safe-guard old pipes)If nothing changes you will not have any more pressure but likely more volume. erik
