In response to Re: low water pressure
: I just had a new well and water system instaled and the first week i had good water pressure (50lbs to 65lbs) prior to the new system i only had 30 to 40 lb of pressure .Now i have low pressure om one side of the house maybee 10 lbs,and 30 lbs on the other side.Could something have dislodged in the copper lines and now is slowing the pressure down?If so is there any thing that will dislove it in the pipes? Or any other way to fix this?
: Thanks,Mike (

You may have something blocking a valve or fitting etc., or the faucet tip aerators. The aerators are the easiest to check. Take them off and see if there's anything blocking the screen. You also don't know for sure just what the pressure is so you should get a pressure gauge and check it. You should also check the operation of any stop valves in the feed line to the part of the house where you see the problems.
