: Terry,
: I have no water pressure from my water heater. We put a new water heater in and still have the problem. We still have the old black steel pipes and I feel that may be the problem. I am not experienced with plumbing but am able to do quite a bit. do you have any advice for someone looking for water pressure.
: Thanks for your time and look forward to hearing from you.

Vince,
Old galvanized pipes close down in size after time. The hot pipes are the worst.
You may want to undo the flex connectors and see how much flow there is at the water heater.
If there is flow there, you have to look elsewhere.
A good "first" place to look is at the shower heads and the aerators on faucets.
They may need cleaning or replacement.
