Pump clearly states it's rated at 3 gpm free flow.... Checked the rate today in both faucets, and shower. I'm getting just shy of ONE gallon per minute... Checked the screen, and the lines, nothing seems to be clogged/pinched or leaking air... I really don't know where to go from this point... Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

The pump is rated for 3 gpm, that's not necessarily the faucets ratings.
To check the pump output use a test hose directly connected to the pumps discharge outlet, place the hose end in a gal. bucket and run the pump for 1 minute.

Also, lift from the source, diameter of the source feed line, the head ( rise ) from the pump, the size of the delivery line, the fittings, etc.. all have an effect of the delivery flow. Most likely the rating is from a source with little lift and has nothing on the discharge port.
