Thread: no water pressure in kitchen

  1. #1

    Default no water pressure in kitchen

    We just disconnected one of the water heaters in our house. We never understood why the previous owners had two installed and feel that one should be sufficient. The old water heater was removed successfully, but now we have little or no water pressure in the kitchen. All other rooms are fine. Any ideas? Thanks for your help!

    A good place to start would be to check the kitchen sink faucet aerator... It may have plugged up with debris from the work being done.

    The reason there were two heater was the previous owners did not get enough hot water from a single tank. Rather than scraping one one small tank and buying a larger tank, the connected a less expensive small tank in series with the first one thereby giving them the benefits of a large tank for the price of a small one and not having to scrape a the first small tank. As Redwood says, check the aerator in the sink faucet and probably all of the others while you are at it. Also check to make sure the shut off valve at the tank is fully open.
