Water Stream

Has anyone experienced a low water stream on cold side of kitchen faucet? Took everything apart and found no deficiencies.

Hi Dogpa. I have not in my 2016 Solera 24WS. Only decreased pressure at kitchen sink when running shower or another faucet.

Is the low flow using city water or pump or both?

Yes I did- the little filter in the faucet was clogged. Replaced it and eveything is fine - now the pump is running continuously when faucet is open, before it was cycling because of pressure building up...

Where did you get the filter? Another tip is to clean the screen on the water pump. Looks like a fuel filter bowl om a gardem tractor and is mounted on the intake side of the water pump. Our rig is a year old now and i am still getting plastic shavings from original installation of the water system.

Where is the water pump located? Hard to get at?

On the2016 - 2400w it is under the shower. There is an access hatch held in place by 4 square head screws. Need to ask model specific though cause there doeamt seem to be a standard location

On the 24R the pump is in the compartment just to the rear of the rear wheels, driver side. Inside that compartment is a hatch that opens and behind the hatch is the water tank and pump. The small sediment collector and filter is readily accessible on the pump inlet side.

I had a problem this year with our kitchen faucet too. Turned out the aerator on the faucet was clogged with sawdust. Cleaned it up and workday fine now. I think aerators (a set of screens) are readily available at a hardware store too.

Cleaned the pump filter. Full of shavings. Cleaned the aerator but didn't help cold water flow for kitchen sink faucet. Thanks for all replies.

How does the faucet run with the aerator removed? How is the open flow?

How is the hot vs cold water flow on that faucet?

If it's just one faucet and just one temperature, then there maybe something stuck further upstream in that line.

If it's just one faucet and both temperatures, then there may be an obstruction in the faucet itself other than at the aerator.

Often debris will get caught in the faucet cartridge or right where the plumbing line attaches to the faucet underneath. You'll likely need to remove and check especially if it's just one side giving problems.

Seems to be just the cold side so a tear apart is in order to check flow.

Nuts. Good luck with that. Let us know what you find in there. Diamonds or gold nuggets, hopefully!

Why not try a little back flow low pressure air into the faucet. Might dislodge what ever is in the line. I would have another faucet in the system open to insure not over pressurizing. Just a thought.

Only get hot water out on both settings. Will try the back pressure and report back.

Were you able to resolve the low flow?
