Is your boiler heating your domestic hot water if so i would turn water off to water maker and see if your boiler pressure stays down below 20 psi. If so water maker is bad. The other thing that could cause this problem would be the boiler pump is out.

you need a certain amount of water pressure for the water heater to turn on this is actaully one of the biggest problems that all manifactures forgot to tell anyone it is normal for the computer to shut down beings it is designed to heat water at a fast rate when you turn the water down, it's not enough pressure for for sensors to turn on to heat the water so turn on the spigot a little more and enjoy

Many states building codes require a pressure regulator and expansion tank for hot water heater installation. Check the pressure regulator if you have one as this would only affect the hot water pressure. Adjust or replace. Rap the expansion tank like knocking hard on a door. Hollow sound is good. Dull thud means it needs to be replaced as it is filled with water.

The thermostatic mixing spool cartridge may be worn out. The low water pressure may indicate sediment in the cartridge as well. This can be easily removed by hand tools
