Water pressure

Similar to the post about low hot water pressure, I am getting very low water pressure both hot and cold. Last year water pressure was fine, both hooked up to city water and with the internal pump, the unit (2012 Greyhawk) was professionally winterized and this spring water pressure is minimal. Any suggestions?

Is the water pressure low for both city hookup and internal pump?

We had a problem first time out this year with the kitchen faucet. Water would come out and then just quit! Bathroom and shower were fine. Took us a while to figure out, but turned out the aerator on the kitchen faucet was totally blocked by something that had gotten through the filter. Cleaned it out and all is fine. Now know to unscrew the aerators every once in a while and clean out.

Yes clean the screens on all your taps first.. this if often the problem. When you have them all off run the water for 5 min to flush out the lines of anything else working its way loose.

Yes. Pressure is low on both city water and the pump. I see someone suggested checking the sink aerators. That might work as it's only the sinks that have low pressure. Shower, both inside and out are fine. Thanks for the suggestion!

It's amazing out much junk gets trapped in those aerator screens! But better there than in your stomach! Also, give the water heater a good flushing. There's some white junk that comes from God knows where, and it gets built up inside the water heater. Eventually, it breaks loose and ends up in the faucet aerators, as well.

That white junk is lime and you wouldn't believe how much it can accumulate in the bottom of your water heater after just a few times used. I flush mine often.

Seann cleaning the aerators was a great idea and it worked. All is good now

Yes - what water pressure are Jayco Class C's recommended to run at? Esp. given the Greyhawk's standard tankless water heater?
