My kitchen was remodeled and I noticed since then the water pressure for new area has been low (hot and cold). Previously we had one sink and dishwasher, now we have
- Two Sinks
- Spigot running to outside
The line serving the original sink was 1" -- drawn down to 1/2" in the crawlspace and then up to the sink. They extended the 1/2" in the crawl space in the following way - pipe1: first sink (hot and cold) - which then T's to - pipe2: fridge (cold only) - pipe3 (hot) : goes to sink #2 hot and dishwasher - pipe3 (cold) : goes to sink# cold and instahot - pipe4 (continues from pipe3 cold) : runs to spiggot
Could the water pressure issue be related to using the 1/2" pipe to connect to every outlet? Should 1" been run to each location and then each reduced to 1/2" closer to outlet?
