I have recently had my main water valve replaced by the village and the shut off valves inside my home.

I have had very low water pressure since the main water valve was replaced. I called the village and they sent someone out to inspect the problem.

They did something and I do not know what that something was. I was able to run the dish washer and faucets ( more than one) and flus a toilet all at the same time. I was able to keep better pressure than what used to come out just turning on a faucet.

Now, again, I have hardly any pressure. Two showers can not go at the same time. A washer and toilet flus is bad news.

The village blames my water sofetner. I cannot believe that. When the bypass valve is pushed over the pressure increases a little but not much.

How do I blead the air out of the lines? Run the faucets all open upstairs or do I shut of the water and burb each faucet one by one.

The village won't come out this time to fix it and it is real frustrating especially when you have kids who want to play with water toys in the yard but the valve won't close in the toilet because it can't fill up and stay up.

Please help.

Thanx, Walt Kangail
