SOURCE: Moen Kitchen tap 87787 water pressure is extremely low

Yes it is very common more so on hot side, the water stops or shutoffs can become plugged with hard water deposits and calcium build up. Shut off main water, unscrew supply lines from shut offs under sink to see if this is indeed the problem.

SOURCE: my moen vestage faucet is dropping water pressure.

Have you removed aerator ,screen etc., from end of tap, to see how flow is with it off. If good, or same as other taps when taken off of them, then you've got debris in aerator, and screen.

We have a moen 7594E. Lower water pressure than old standard Moen.


The pull out spout/spray has backflow preventers built into the hot and cold supply lines coming from the body of the faucet. The backflows have a tendency to lower the flow rate because of the additional restriction they cause.

if this is the only place in the home where water pressure is a problem then the lines may very well be the issue. if you have low pressure throughout the home then there may be a problem with the main water supply in the home. if the lines are galvanized pipe then they may be restricted due to rust or other deposits forming on the inside of the pipe. unless you are good at plumbing then i would suggest having a professional come out and assess the condition of the lines.

I have a Moen single handle tub/shower faucet. I cannot yet get much pressure to the shower head, there is good pressure from the faucet. I have placed the shower head in vinegar with no improvement. ...


Your problem is in the water restrictor located inside the shower head. All plumbing manufacturers install these small plastic internal blockers to reduce water down to 2.5 gals per minute. In your case, this restrictor is most likely filled with sediment which is restricting it even further. Remove the shower head from the curved shower pipe. Look inside where the water goes through it. You should be able to see the restrictor. Maybe you can flush out the sediment. Otherwise, remove it and I'm sure you'll get more pressure then originally installed. Because most restrictors are sort of plastic screens or cones, I usually put a wood screw through the center of this product and then once a few threads bite in, I use a plyers on the head or the screw and pull outward while holding the shower head in a stable position. If you are able to get it out, technically your "out of code" because now your going to get all the water it can really supply.Most people are delighted to have it gone.

My water pressure is very low from the original install is there a way to adjust the faucet to allow a better pressure flow


Your issue could be caused by the water restrictor in the shower head. To know for sure, remove the shower head and then turn the water on.

Very tough water restrictions have manufacturers using plastic water restrictors in the shower heads.

Although you are not supose to, some shower heads can be taken apart to modify, or remove the restrictor.

I hope this helps you.

Low pressure,cleaned screen in tip,checked incoming supply,seems strong,yet pressure is low??


Has pressure always been low? If faucet is new than there will be a flow restricter in the aerator. Most flow restricters can be removed easily. Some are a pain. Have you tried checking the pressure with the aerator off. That would tell you if the problem is there or in the valve.
