Is it just me?

I use a water regulaor rated at 40 to 45, is it normal for the presure that comes out showers and kitchen sink to Be the weakest. Kitchen is furthest away, bathroom sink is strongest. Pinched line.?

Remove aerators and shower head, soak in Ĺ white vinegar Ĺ water solution overnight. Check flow next morning.

Great idea. WE do that with all our faucets on a regular basis.

How is the pressure/flow when using the pump???

Clogged faucet aerator is possible
Shower has a restrictor inside the hose connection or inside the handle (use 1/4" drill bit and enlarge the hole in restrictor)
*I've done that on last TWO 5th wheel showers

Inscrease water reg to 50PSI

Shower handle/heads are snap together plastic.....try to take it apart and SNAP off the tabs cause they are not meant to be taken apart.

Flow restrictors are typically in the end of shower handle ---where the shower hose connects
**Have found them in the end of hose at faucet also



Some can be pried out...they snap in
My older ones didn't so I just enlarged the hole usig 1/4" drill bit




Did you get good flow at sink faucet??
