Lost water pressure in bathroom, can't get it back...
Posted by Jim on February 10, 2002 at 16:10:39:
Previously, our bathroom sink had some pressure, but I didn't think enough. Though I don't know a thing about plumbing, I finally got around to seeing if I could increase it by tackling the only thing I could see, the two valves under the sink (for the hot and cold water). Since I didn't know if it was already at full blast or not(as the valve was old and hard to turn), I turned on the water from above, then started turning, which was closing it. I opened it back up to full (which it had apparently been at before). Then later that day I noticed that the pressure and the amount of water coming out was worse, much worse than before, now coming out in just a trickle. Any suggestions on how to get it back to at least what it was before, and better? Where'd I go wrong? Thanks
