Water Pressure Issue


I have a weird issue with the water pressure in my townhome. On the first floor the kitchen sink has super low pressure for the cold water but the hot water comes out like normal. And on the second floor in the restrooms the cold water comes out normal and the hot water has super low pressure. What could be the cause of this?

Water Pressure Issue


Bad shut off valves

bad faucets

Has it always been like that? Is the tub pressure also low or just faucets?

Water Pressure Issue


The tubs seem ok. I will have to check those later because the tub faucet is the kind with one knob.

Its been doing it ever since I moved in a couple of months ago

Water Pressure Issue


Remove the water lines to the faucets and reverse them--if they are long enough.

.
That will tell you if it's the faucet or the water line/shutoff.
