Water Pressure

Water flow/pressure is quite low from the kitchen sink faucet while it seems to be ok in the bedroom--shower, sink and toilet. Any ideas before I start taking a few things apart?
Thanks, B

I would check the screens in the aerator on the faucet before tearing anything apart..

My last two Montana's had a single lever kitchen faucet ... no stems ... just a plastic ball with o-rings.

We have an undercounter water filter in the kitchen which does make for a slow water flow from that faucet...if you also have a filter under your kitchen counter that could account for the slow flow.

If you have the original Moen faucet in the rig, I seem to remember that if you take apart the aerator assembly, there is a flow restrictor device inside of there. A forum search (terms = faucet flow restrictor) may be in order but if I remember correctly it is some sort of a white disc that is behind the aerator. May be worth investigating and removing if it is still in there.

Hey Jay, I know the AIR is pretty thin in Colorado so I will put it in simple terms .

1. Open doors under sink

2. Disconnect hot, and cold lines.

3. Remove nut holding faucet, remove faucet

4. Put in new faucet.

5. Turn on water.

6. Do not sell Montana!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL,LOL,LOL,

David
