Could be the flow control filter needs cleaned. Try unscrewing the round piece where the water comes out. There is usually a wire mesh filter in there that could have become clogged.

I agree. If it appears coated with something, soak it in vinegar for a few hours.

Sounds as if your accumulator tank is low on air.

You might have developed a leak in they line. what does the shower do? Have you hooked it up to city water and tried it? Does you pump turn of and on when no water is turned on. My pump would run off and on all night when I first bought my RV, turned out I had a leak and the pressure difference caused the pump to run when it shouldn't. I hate water problems!

Slow running water from one faucet is more often than not a plugged aerator screen as mentioned above. One the aerator is off the faucet run the water and see how good the pressure seems. Another common problem on older faucets that have been used much in hard water situations is a corrosion buildup in the flow pipe of the faucet. In that case a new faucet is the best fix.

I have a whole house filter on my potable water hose. I use 2 stages. The first canister used a sand removal filter and the second one uses a charcoal filter. This system only protects the plumbing from the garbage that is often in the water and cleans up the taste some. As far as hard water is concerned only a water softener will help that.
