poor pressure

Hi! I seem to have a water pressure problem on both the water pump and on the city water supply. Both have great pressure when first turning on the faucet but quickly go to a drip only mode. I have cleaned all of the screens and cannot understand the low pressure since the regulator is for street water only and not the battery operated pump. Thanks'jPete

This may sound stupid as you checked the screens but we had a very similar problem. I unscrewed the aerators on the nozzles of both faucets and found small white pieces of sediment. I just tapped them out, rinsed the screens and all was well.

As another thought. Unscrew the ends of the faucets and then run the water. If the pressure seems OK, then it would be the aerators or screens causing the problem.

The only thing I can think of would be a valve that is just almost shut off,allowing water to seep thru and then build up pressure.But I know of no valve that would control street and pump water.Dave

Did you ever get this figured out? I am having the same exact problem.
