      Can anyone help?My bathroom is suffering from extreme low water pressure. At best the water coming from the cold water taps( bath and sink) is a frustrating trickle. The toilet cistern takes an eternity to refill. Flush the toliet and the water ceases to run form the taps.It could be that there is air trapped in the pipes, but there is no characteristic hammering or humming coming from the pipes.Does anyone know what could be causing the problem or have know of any any remedies for this malise?Hope to here from somebody soonCan anyone help?My bathroom is suffering from extreme low water pressure.

      Some ideas: 1. An object entered the water line and is restricting water flow. 2. If 1/2 od cpvc only have 3/8 id, may not feed all fixtures at one time. 3. If older home piped with galvanized piping – pipes may be restricted by internal corrosion. 4. Check your main water pressure should be at least 50#
