Thank you Protocol!
I have done all of those things....other than remove the hose from the saddle tap and keep the water on.....would I do that and just let the water flow out into a bucket or cup or something?
the line goes thru a wall, and is not kinked at any point.
The washer fills with plenty of pressure (from the same line I did the self tapper on)
I believe I have the self tapper all the way open. It won't turn any further...
I did not see any "screens" on the line...just the ends to connect that the water line came with....it is just like this only not commercial grade
I am just typically someone these things do not work for! They are super easy for everyone else! I am a brand new homeowner DIY'er and want to learn!
