I just changed the faucet in one bathroom...I did not shut off our mains, just the inlet valves under the sink. They were off for several hours.

The new faucet is in, nothing is leaking, and the inlets are turned back on. But we have lost water pressure throughout the house. Just a trickle upstairs, and the toilet tanks (up and down) won't refill.

What's going on?

It eventually came back (~3 hours to get back to normal). Of course, as the pressure came back, the faucet I installed under low pressure sprung a leak and flooded our bathroom while we slept. I shut down the valves and the the pressure has remained normal today. Our city water is occasionally wonky, maybe it was a coincidence. At any rate, unlucky, as I would have left those outlets off overnight if I had known they weren't the problem!

Now I need tips on drying drywall so it doesn't mildew/mold...
