Water pressure need Avodart

Talk about a weak stream...I have taken all screens out cleaned and replaced and still get a surge of water when the faucet (kitchen, shower or vanity) is opened and then it trickles down to a small stream. It matters not that I am on city water or on the 12v pump I have the same end result.Is there a valve on a 86 345 that I do not know about or has anyone had this problem before...I removed the out hose from the pump and there is great pressure....removed the hose on the other side of the pressure control valve and have great pressure from city water where is the problem?Pete

Probably the water pressure regulator is blocked.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

The 12v pump does not go thru the pressure regulator. I have checked the out flo on both the 12v and on the city water after the regulator and have good to great pressure but no pressure to any of the faucets.Pete

You might have some 'crud' stick inside the hot and cold inlet pipes under the faucets...our Hot was plugged that way, and I had to replace the whole faucet to fix it!

I tried blowing the crud 'back' from the top, after I had unhooked the inlet connection, but couldn't get it all out...
