Slow water fill

I noticed the last time I filled, and when I tried to add antifreeze......the flow is very very slow. I couldn't add antifreeze through the fitting, so I used the pump to suck it in. But why the problem filling from the inlet?

Sounds like the backflow preventer is bad. The location of yours is likely different than mine, which is behind the panel holding the city water connection.

The water connection is actually the pressure reducer. I removed it, and hooked it up to the spigot. Full flow. Shoot. I can't think that the fill valve could become restrictive.
