    Galley water pressure

    On dockside water, water pressure at the galley sink fixture is very low or restricted. The flow in the bathroom sinks an shower is acceptable. Even the bar sink fixture pressure is better. (It has no aerator screen on the spigot)
    I cleaned the screen at the pressure regulator inlet. Cleaned the screens on the galley sink fixture w TSP where the sprayer connects. The water flow at the sprayer hose is weak even after the screen cleaning. Once the sprayer is attached, the water flow remains weak.
    Am I missing a screen screen, filter, or some other restriction?

      What’s the water flow/pressure at the galley tap with the aerator screens removed?

        Wait, you mentioned when on shore water.

        What about when you run off of tank water?

          Good point, pressure regulators are designed to fail to zero pressure. Try the other one as a comparison.

            Water pressure with screen and aerator removed is not great but better.
            The Water Pressure Reg was replace 3 months ago. Inlet screen looked good on inspection.
            The fresh water VFLO 5.0 DC pump is not functional. I have the replacement in the box on the salon floor getting around to install.
            The is a large blue water filter which is inline with the tank and shore water line. Never opened & replaced in past years

              If it is a filter just remove the filter and reinstall the cartridge if it's a cartridge type. A pic would help.

            Dirty Filter will cause this....as brad shared, remove filter and see what happens. also there should be a screen before your pump (I understand it is not working) but have clean out that filter screen? Just thinking that might be part of the issue as well.
