New waterline from the street


Installed water line from street to house. We bought the house from on-line auction. someone stole the plumbing. All I have hooked up right now is line from the street to the shower/tub and toilet in 1 bathroom. Also, not hooked up to a waterheater so no hot water. When I run the tub (just cold line hooked up) it just a slow stream. Will this get better when I hook everything up through a water heater, etc? When lines are not connected I have great water flow. When I connect, it barely runs from the tub faucet.

Why would it get better?

When not connected where are you getting the great flow from?

What lines are not connected to give you a good flow? What is still connected from which the good flow comes out of?

On line auction does not sound like it flows

Sounds to me like your shower/tub valve is clogged up. Pull the cartridge & clean or replace. Also run the water with the cartridge out which might dislodge some debris/sediment.

What is the pressure into the house?
