Low Water pressure
Posted by Margaret on May 24, 2001 at 12:42:13:

I recently purchased a home, built in 1952. It has low water pressure coming from all faucets in
the Kitchen and main bath(they are back to back) However the hot water coming out of the tub
faucet seems to be the worst of all..barely a trickle.. but coming from the shower head it is tolerable.
The bathroom sink and shower I have in the basement seems to have a little better pressure. Does
this sound simply like a matter of cleaning the screens and or aeroator (sp?) in the upstairs faucets
I haven't tried that yet.
Oh by the way ... all faucets seem to be a little older ..(installed perhaps in the 70's?)
I would so appreciate any help!! Thank you !!
