water regulator

We use a water regulator, even if pressure doesn't seem too much , if we don't, the toilet fills up too much. So of course our kitchen faucet has very little pressure, all other sinks and shower are ok, just the kitchen. We had a new faucet put in but that does not help. Any ideas

Use a watts regulator from lowes,homedepot not the cheap end of hose things you'll have better water flow and still have the same pressure.

This one from Camping World works great and is on sale for a heck of a lot less than I paid for it: Adjustable Water Regulator - Lead Free - Valterra A01-1117VP - Faucets & Inlets - Camping World


And it includes a gage and all of the extra brass adaptors that may not be included with the one from HD (if you can find it).

If only the kitchen lacks flow, I would look for a restriction in the pipe, fittings or valve somewhere near the kitchen. I have seen the shut off valve clogged with debris left from the plumber not flushing the lines first.

Low water flow is common at the kitchen because this is usally the farthest from the fresh water connection. There is a lot of 3/8" pipe between the fresh water connection and the kitchen facet. I agree a quality regulator will help improve flow, at least it did in my coach.
