my water pressure is good when i only use one item in house at a time, kitchen sink, bath sink, etc. but when the kitchen sink is on and i turn on a out side hose, or that bath sink the pressure reduces drastically. this happens when any two items are turned on together. this is a one story two bath house with a water softner. we bought this 10 year old house two years ago and had an inspector check and verify the pressure was good at that time. it was ok for first year and half, and the nieghbors who are also on city water have not had any problems. what is the problem.

Hi Sandy6008,
Something has happened within your house in a year and a half to reduce the water pressure.Although I am not familiar with water softeners,I know they require maintenance.Possibly someone else can advise you on exactly what to do.

Couple things you could try. What is your pressure w/o any water on, should be around 75-80lbs or so, what is it w/ 1 outlet on, 2 on. The water softener could be your culprit. This might take a little doing but by pass your softener and test your system, see if that makes a difference. Your house isn't that old, you should have copper thruout I would think.
