    Sprinkler System Low Pressure - sometimes

    I have a five-year-old, 4 station system sprinkler, two stations higher than the manifold, one lower and one dripper. Orbit valves, Hunter rotator nozzles, Rainbird controller. When I turn on any station, either manualy or via the controller, the pressure is so low I don't get an adequate spray...

    Cleaned aerator, found trouble, caused double.

    Salty and Brown After Regeneration

    We had a new softener professionally installed over 2 years ago - Hellenbrand ProMate 6.0. Until recently we've had no issues whatsoever. Recently, though, we've had a problem with very salty and dirty water when first using faucets the morning after a regeneration. My initial reading of...

    Low Pressure issue- i'm stumped

    I'm rehabbing a home with one 2nd floor bathroom. The bathroom had terrible water pressure if any one fixture was running, and the shower always had bad pressure. When the walls were open I realized the whole home was running off 1/2 pipe. I replaced everything with 3/4 inch from the meter...

    K-2976 Showerhead water flow vastly lower after remodel adds twin ell

    Searching around on Google for this topic keeps bringing me to threads on this forum, although in reviewing them none seem to be exactly what I'm experiencing. So, time to create an account and ask, I guess! In a tearing-the-bathroom-down-to-the-studs remodel, we went with a Kohler...

    New well owner! Low pressure. Replaced tank. Seems.... worse....

    First time home owner! The house has a well. Which has been pretty painless the last few years. Pressure started to seem a bit lower than normal, so I replaced my pressure tank, after thinking the air bladder went bad. (it was also a bit small, and very old. In hindsight, maybe wasnt but, but...

    Afternoon, I cleaned my Utica Boiler (1980s?), burners (lots of rust), and letting air out of the radiators. (The unit supplies two floors from the basement.) The issue is that none of the second floor radiators release hot water when bled but only air. (They have improved in heating their...

    Very low water pressure in new kitchen faucet.

    I installed a brand new kitchen faucet. I've never done it before. My water pressure now is extremely low - just a strong dribble. The water pressure was never an issue with the old faucet. What did I do wrong? It's so low that it's very doubtful the issue is due to a pressure regulator or...

    Low pressure after a minute of use

    Hello, I just purchased a home and my first home with a well. When we moved in we knew there was a low pressure issue so I did what I thought was logical; recharged pressure tank to 38 PSI (it was at 0), put in new 40/60 pressure switch, removed and cleaned gate style shut off valve. I had a...

    Upstairs water pressure

    Hello, we have well water, for the passed few months our upstairs water pressure has gotten significantly worse.

    I put in a full house filter, now....no pressure.

    I'm at a total loss. We live in a community that has water supplied by well and storage tank. We've always had a sediment issue. So, I installed a full house, GE filter. I have 55psi going into the filter, but I have no pressure in the house. If you flush a toilet, it will take a minute to...

    Low pressure for hot water from shower

    For a month now, the water pressure drops when using hot water in my shower. Cold water comes out fine. In addition, there's sometimes a small increase and decrease in temperature, but the more noticeable issue is the pressure. Concerning the pressure, it will sometimes fluctuate, or remain...
