Question

New Sillcock - Low Flow


I just installed a new AMERICAN VALVE 10" purchased from Lowes. I originally had a NIBCO brand. I installed this sillcock with (2) GatorBITE Push Fit 1/2" x 1/2" Removable Coupling and aGatorBITE Push Fit 1/2" x 1/2" x 1/2" Removable Tee. After assembling I turned on the new sillcock and have a low flow of water. The other faucet connected to the "T" section has a very strong flow. I need to know what I am doing wrong. This as already took a toll on my sanity. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Is everything the same diameter after the T? Water will obviously take the path of least resistance..

I have the "T" then about 1 1/2" to 2" pipe and then a GatorBITE Push Fit 1/2" Removable Female Adapter which is attached to the sillcock. It is threaded with Teflon tape. I am not to sure if it is the sillcock, or the connections. Here is a picture of the connections
