Possible that the pump is not working to the the desired pressure and so might be clogged or faulty.
You can remove and clean the pump before this can be confirmed,There can be accumulation of dirt to the input of the pump which can be reversed flushed.

SOURCE: Cold water only very slowly

there can be 3 reasons for this I will tell u the easiest way to test this first
Problem1)turn the water off at the blue tap fitting that is proberbly under your sink take the blue pipe off at the washer end and place it into the sink turn the blue tap back on if the water comes out quick then the problem is more then likely your cold water solenoid that is either slightly blocked were it fits to the washer,But if it doesnt come out quick then the other 2 problems are as follows.
Problem2)the blue tap that u turn the cold water on to the blue pipe undue the little screw in the middle of the tap and pull the blue fitting off now with a pair of pliers turn the square metal fitting that was under the blue fitting making sure that the end of the pipe is in the sink if it comes out quick then that is the problem the blue tap fitting is rounded off when ot should be square turn the water of and replace the pipe and turn the water back on the cold water should be better now.
Problem3)the blue tap that u turn the cold water pipe of at the copper pipe is blocked or it has a broken shut off valve inside it this will need replacing these are the only problems that it could be let me know if this is any help to u peter

SOURCE: cold water pressure is very low

Do you have a regular "boiler drain" type valve for your cold water supply? Is it possible your washer came loose inside the valve like mine did?

You will of course have to turn off the water mail to check this.

One of my HG shower systems has increasingly lower volume. The shower head and supply hose are fine. what should I check next?


If you are using water in another part of the house most times the pressure at the bathroom shower will go low. For instance if some one in the kitchen draws water in the kitchen sink this will make the shower water even turn cooler because of low pressure. Flushing the toilet will also do the same.
Most houses are plumbed with half inch water pipe and would work a lot better if it was three quarter inch to give more water pressure.

I have a gainsborough ps1600 shower. Water pressure has dropped. Doesn't help when head is removed. Can still adjust temperature but not speed/power


If the water pressure dropped at a sudden moment, it sounds more like an issue with the water pressure leading into your shower, and not a problem with the shower its self. Try seeing if other water sources in the same area of your shower have the same low water pressure issue.

No shower pressure in rv


Make sure you have enough water in the tank or city water hooked up. A pump will run and suck air if the level is low. it could force water to the sink, etc, but not the shower.

Are your valves for the water pump set correctly? Remote possibility someone installed a shut-off valve between the pump and shower.

Could be the pump is getting weak/leaking internally and can't build enough pressure.

Make sure the shower head is not clogged. Remove it from the hose and try again.

I have a problem with low hot water pressure can you help would an elec shower help


1) If possible, it is Best to solve pressure problem before installing new shower.

2) If the cold water has good pressure, then Electric shower could fix problem ... but shower would have to be connected to the cold water line and not the hot.

3) Seems the expense of adding a electric shower would be greater than having plumber fix low hot water pressure.
Assuming you have access to plumbing pipes, and this is not apartment building.

Theres a code "LF" beeping....


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
When your washer displays error LF , it is due to low water pressure, slow or continuous fill.All washers are designed to operate with a water supply pressure of 20-100 PSI. When the pressure drops below 20 PSI the washer can have the following problems;
  • Slow Fill- low water pressure reduces the speed at which water flows into the machine.
    • Verify the pressure at all other water sources in the house (i.e. sinks, showers, etc..). If you find other places where the pressure is low, the problem is not with the machine but with the water supply.
  • Continuous Fill- The valve may not fully seat under 20 PSI which would allow for a constant flow even when the machine isn't supposed to be filling.
    • Contact the water company to verify the pressure being supplied to the house
  • Error Codes- LF for long fill or FH for no water detected.
    • A plumber may need to be consulted if the pressure is found to be too low.

Low water pressure from shower head with the shower head removed


If you have good pressure at the water faucet close to the shower and low at the shower then the shower valve needs rebuilt. If you have low pressure at all then start going down the line toward the water service coming into the house looking for where the low pressure starts in the distribution system and you should be able to isolate the problem.

Water heater works but low pressure at sink and shower. Is there a filter or screen at the output line that may be clogged?


Take the aerator off the sink spout and see if your pressure is good without it on there. Sometimes they get plugged causing that problem, usually after you have had the water disconnected and turned back on again. If that works, do the same with you shower head. If the tub spouts runs good and not the shower head, then that is also a good indicator of that being the problem.
