Poor water pressure from outside tap

Postby rcollins » Sun Nov 11, 2007 3:27 pm

Hi there,
I haven't a clue why this is - we had a new sink installed a few weeks back and the pressure of water coming out of the back tap is very weak (unlike in the past when it used to be normal pressure i.e. enough to properly jet from a hose fixed to it).

Any ideas?

Simply Build It

If the outside tap is supplied by a flexible hose, it may have accidentally been kinked during the installation. Also, check that the isolating valve is turned fully on,
