Poor water pressure

ArfArf Posts: 20Member
I am experiencing poor water pressure at all water outlets when connected to city water.  When pumping tank water the pressure is fine.  I have a blue filter and a pressure reducer in the hose line and have plenty of pressure at the hose end but when hooked up I measure the pressure in the galley in quarts per minute, not gallons.  Question:  Does the inlet fitting incorporate a pressure reducer?  I can see some sort of gizmo in the inlet fitting but I can't tell what it is.  This is in a 2019 LGMax.

    To my knowledge Arf, there is no internal pressure reducer, at least not in the 2018 model we have.  We purchased a pressure valve and a filter with ours.  Have you tried removing all the inline do-hickies and see what comes out the other end?  I did have ours on once on a line that was not min 40PSI and it reduced to a trickle inside.  Is there a screen or filter that may be clogged?  Do you have all the stop cocks open all the way from end to end?  Is there a leak somewhere?  Just thinking off the top of my head......

    Thanks Texas.  I removed the intake screen to no avail.  I contacted Bob Deskewicz at the factory and he is sending me a new inlet fixture.  Given that the hose has plenty of pressure and I have plenty of pressure when using the pump it must be at the inlet.  All fixtures in the LGM have the same poor pressure on city water.

    Interested in how this works out for you once the new part is in. Good luck.
