    Inconsistent Water Pressure - Driven Well

    Good Afternoon! I have been having an issue with my water pressure in my house for about a year now. It seems to have started last year when I noticed my shower and sink water pressure started to die down and went from full pressure to probably 1/2 to 1/4 pressure with water just "spilling" out...

    Water pressure drops drastically when using hot water for bathtubs?

    My family purchased a new home a few years ago. This issue has always been present, but I'm finally getting around to figuring out the issue. Our water heater is in our basement and our bathtubs are on the second floor (2 floors up). If we try to fill the tubs with hot water quickly, the...

    new Delta faucet, water flow

    I'm considering a Delta kitchen faucet that claims to offer 1.8 GPM based on 60 PSI. The pressure where our outside pipe (from a drilled well) enters the house is 44 PSI. Will this lower pressure have a significant impact on the flow of water from the faucet? Thank you.

    Low water pressure

    I have a cheap faucet in the kitchen and it’s getting slower and slower by the day. Problem is, it’s brand new. Well, the guy I bought the house from put it in right before we moved in and said he got it from Home Depot. Even with the aerator off it’s still pretty slow. Any suggestions before I...

    I am going to plumb the house I built soon. I will be running water lines to a on demand hot water heater, a steam generator, a shower, a tub and 2 sinks. My questions is it better to have one line for H and C that branches off via T connectors to all the above or use a manifold with a separate...
