    Re: Reducing water pressure with a garden hose y adapter

    I would follow Bobcats advice and get an adjustable regulator. I keep mine set at 60 psi.
    As for the kitchen faucet, take the spray head apart and check for debris.

    Most of the faucets have flow regulators. I have taken mine out and have great flow not. Also debris will stop up the flow regulators too. This is the part that screws onto the part of the faucet where the water comes out.

    I have 40Psi at the hose and we still have volume problems in our trailer, I have a feeling that the screen at the city water inlet might have something to do with it. The previous trailer with the same pressure reducer and no screen was great and now we have problems. I will be removing it and see if it makes a difference, we have a filter now installed anyway.

    Where would that flow regulator be located ??? My water pressure is extremely low in the kitchen and bathroom sing but it's pretty nice in the shower ??

    Take the stainer off the faucet. The flow restrictor is in there.
