We just replaced a 52 year old water heater. When we turned the water back on, we had the normal sputtering. Our water pressure has not returned to normal and I would hate to call a plumber (who has to drive over 30 miles) if I can fix it myself. I have checked the faucet filters. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Check the pop off valve, on top of heater, and make sure not open position or stuck open.If so, all water is just going out valve .

Just to cover the simple things first, check the strainers at the faucet outlets and shower heads. Replacement of the heater may have dislodged sediment that could be impeding water flow at the outlets.
