Low water pressure after fixing leak.
My Story so far:
Noticed a leak via the leak detector about a month ago. Long story short, ended up replacing old poly butylene from the water meter to the copper connection on the house. Also replaced the PRV. Everything seemed fine for about a week or two.
Then about a week ago I noticed that the leak detector was moving again. This time the copper pipe from the house got a pin sized hole poked in it. Fixed that was well.
But after I turned the water on a made sure there was no leaks (leak detector not moving), my wfie and I noticed that the water pressure was not what it should be. We can now only have one faucet, hot or cold, on at a time in the house or we have a big drop in water pressure.
I am a little stumped to be honest (as if that is hard to do). I used 3/4" pipe to replace the line and fix any problems as the original line was 3/4". I guess there could be junk in the line but I thought I was careful not to get anything in it besides a little dirt and pipe glue.
I have tried turing the main off at the meter and draining the line (just open faucets and emptied toilets) and then reopend the main to see if it would 'flush' anything out but that didn't work.
I tried just turning everything on to see if maximum possible flow would push anything out. No go.
The latest thing I have done is to call the city to check the meter and the valve just to be sure. I hope to hear from them soon.
Is there anything else you guys can think off that I could try before I call the plumber and admit defeat?
