Water pressure question

I did research the forums about this problem. I did replace the water filter. Still low pressure. The flow at the spigot is very strong. Is a filter necessary? We have great water at our location. Just wanted to try without a filter to see if it improves. Kountry Star 4037. TYIA

A very common issue is some blockage at the city water inlet point. There is wire screen attached to the hose rubber ring.


Right behind this screen is a check valve that can get stuck. Some times a push on it can clean up an issue. Remove the screen first.


Do you have a pressure regulator in the system, external or built-in?


Sometimes there is a three-way valve just inside of the city water connection that goes to either the coach system or allows filling the fresh water tank. If you have such a valve is it set right?



Is the water pressure good when you run off the pump and fresh water tank?

Thanks it worked

We found it clogged at the inlet and cleared the kitchen faucet. Thanks for the quick complete response.

If you have the small inline cheap water pressure regulator, the best thing to do with it is find the nearest dumpster and place the regulator in it. By a whole house adjustable water regulator with a gauge.
