Low water pressure question

Hello friends,

I have low water pressure at my kitchen sink. The rest of the water pressure in my 32bhds seems fine (bathroom, shower, outside shower).

The low water pressure at the kitchen sinks happens whether I am on city water, or using my water pump with house water. It seems very strange as the water pump is right below the kitchen sink, so I would have thought that the pressure, at least when the pump is being used, would be highest at the kitchen faucet. No such luck, it comes out in a trickle in the kitchen at all times.

Any ideas, suggestions, comments?

Thanks in advance.

Ensign

Water Pressure Issues

My Jayco Melbourne 29d has water pressure trouble.
The bathroom sink has full water pressure from both hot and cold but the kitchen sink and shower have very little pressure. Water comes out at a trickle.
I am running off the freshwater tank (not connected to outside water source) and the system is fully pressurized. Can anyone direct me where to look to start trouble shooting?
Thank you!

I had the same issue, but in my bathroom. At the tip of he faucet, were the water comes out is an aerator. It unscrews from the faucet, it is probably plugged. Take it off and clean it out and you should be good to go.

We had the same issue as Ron. We took the aerator off and cleaned out the plastic. Works great now.

Symptom points to the aerator

Same problem, same fix. Check the aerator, make sure it's not plugged. Mine got debris in them when I had the system blowed out, winterizing. Lesson: remove the aerators before you blow out the lines.

Not always the aerator...

My buddy had this issue...low pressure at kitchen faucet, but bathroom and shower were fine. Got worse and worse until it was only a trickle. I found that under the faucet there is a little one-way valve in the line. Not positive what it's for (anti-drain back?) but anyway, it had froze up and wouldn't open all the way. Removed it and cleaned and polished it and problem was solved.
Even when working properly, these valves still restrict pressure somewhat. Take it out & throw it away and you'll have full throttle!
