Why do I have low water pressure or no water?
Be sure the valves on both side of the meter are fully open. Water softeners are the most common culprit for a reduction in water pressure. Push or turn the bypass lever on the water softener, then check the water pressure. Unplugging the unit from the electrical outlet has no effect on the water pressure. Aerators on faucets may need to be removed and flushed if zeolite from the softener was pumped into the household water system. A failing pressure-reducing valve (a bell-shaped object on the main water line by the water meter) may also cause reduced water pressure.
