From what are you experiencing low water flow?
is it from an outdoor faucet?
indoor? Kitchen or bath?
bathtub or shower?
or do you have some other kind of spigot that is low flow?
Has it always been low flow?
Or, did it just start showing this symptom?
Is Low flow present at all faucets? Or just the one?
many questions... Because you were not specific! We would like to help, but we can help you better to get to a solution when the questions are not so basic!
If you have always had low water flow, throughout, then your supply is restricted at the main. If just one termination point, then it is possible the restriction is right there at that faucet,

Low water pressure from wand


The pressure in a watering wand extension to a garden hose is related to the water pressure from the hose itself.

The point of a watering wand is to provide a gentle and widespread flow of water. If you are looking for a powerful stream, then a different type of attachment is required.

Check to make sure that there is no leaking at the faucet, or at any connecting point. Leaks will lower water pressure at the end point.
Check to be sure the wand itself is free of dirts and clogs. If the wand is dirty or blocked, it will affect the pressure.
If there are several hoses hooked together, the water pressure is more likely to be low at the last point, the wand itself.
When the water pressure drops as a result of another use, like a shower, dishwasher, another hose faucet, then the water pressure will drop in the wand.

My Simpson ezi sett 7.5 always fills to full even when set to low. i have replaced the pressure switch and still fills to full.


Check the rubber hose from the pressure switch down to the bowl for any holes or splits allowing the air pressure to escape. Also check that water valve is stopping the flow. Start to fill then press pause. Water flow should stop immediately. If it keeps flowing or is slow to stop then replace the inlet valve. Try it several times to be sure.

Have an Onga JJ400 jet water pump several years old, pump is working but delivering poor water flow


Is the pump building pressure and shutting off? If the pump keeps running but not building pressure than there is most likely a problem with the well (low volume). Also check for a water logged bladder tank.

Heater starts and runs for several minutes and then turns off


Since the unit runs for a couple minutes, I would first check for proper water flow. Find the pressure switch. It is usually round with two wire terminals and a copper/metal tube attached to it. With the wires attached, use a jumper wire to bypass the switch. If it runs longer check for flow problems.. (WARNING don't jump the switch for too long!!! Just enough time to see if the run cycle improves). Clean all the skimmers baskets, pump basket, backwash the filter (if a cartridge filter clean the filters). Try firing the heater again. If it still shuts down, replace the pressure switch. I never recommend adjusting it. Adjusting it too low can damage your heater and/or cause injury.

Blanco purus II poor water pressure


If the pressure is the same for both hot and cold. Then most of the time it could be just a blocked Screen/Aerator. Unscrew it and see if the pressure has improved. If so the replace it! Lowe's or Home Depot have them.
