Gator bite water shutoff


Installed gator bite water shut off valves and the water flow has been reduced significantly. Is this normal? What can be done to increase flow?

No, If these valves were installed on supplies to a single fixture, you've probably dislodged some debris inside the lines. Clean the aerator first.

Did you by chance install the shutoff valve in the ground?
