: Hi there,

: I just replace my bathroom faucet because they were old and leaking...I decided to also replace the hoses from the water shut off to the taps because they were also leaking...once I replaced them the leaking stopped but now I have no water pressure, WHY?

: One thing I should mention is that I changed the hoses from the metal bendy type to the polymer braid...could this be the problem??

If it's not the hoses kinking, then it could be the flow limiter in the faucet. The government has decided that you do not need more than 2.5 gal per min from your faucet.

However the faucet manufacturers realize that a lot of thier customers have criminal tendencies and they have made it easy to remove this flow limiter. Remove the areator assembly from the faucet and look for a disk with a small hole thru it. drill a bigger hole thru this disk or just throw it away. Be sure to close the curtins and lock the door while engaged in this illegal activity. Big Brother is Watching!!!
