Low water pressure on site water

First time out since winterizing this fall
Hooked up to site water
Flushed all faucets then after hot water tank filled the water pressure totally dropped
Toilet works fine
Just very low pressure in kitchen and bathroom faucets
Perplexed

Toilet is cold water only and the rest are hot and cold. Possible that the hot is the issue? If so, verify the valves on the water heater bypass.

Check the aerator screens on each faucet head for debris.

Put some water in the freshwater tank and run the pump.

low water pressure

Make sure your valves are closed on your low point hot and cold water lines.

Hi

Typically when I leave them open it's pretty obvious ....

Cycling them when you de-winterize is a good idea. Anti-freeze can sit just above the valves and not flush out with the normal "water through the pipes" approach.

On the same "obvious" note: check for a puddle accumulating under the fresh water intake. If the back flow valve cracks, you get a puddle there.
