Water pressure/flow issue
I have a Northpoint 377RLBH coming up on one year old this month.
We traveled for almost 6 months without any water flow/pressure issues and then a couple months ago the water flow slowed to a trickle. Out of sight, out of mind until that point but I quickly remembered the water filter...must need replacing, which I did. Good to go, but only for about 6 weeks before the trickle started again. Perhaps we just have very 'bad' water where we are, so I replaced it again. It's now been less than 2 weeks and the trickle is back. When you first turn on a faucet the pressure is strong from built up pressure in the lines, but after a few seconds it's down to a trickle. All faucets the same - kitchen, shower, bathroom vanity. Pressure at the CG spigot is consistently strong. If I remove the filter cartridge all together, we have consistent strong pressure and water flow.
Not sure what is going on. Certainly don't need to be changing out $20 filters every two weeks.
I replaced the original with Flow-Pur 8's (model #WCBCS975-RV). Maybe it's not the correct one or too "tight" of a filter to maintain adequate pressure?
Are there any additions or changes I could consider like a reserve tank, additional pump - or somehow use the dry camping pump to maintain pressure?
