Best Answer

Could be a partial blockage in the supply lines to the faucet. Could also be a different size of supply line. The faucet valves may also need cleaning.

What would cause a drastic drop in water pressure in all faucets?

A leak in the supply pipe.

Why would just the upstairs faucets sputter when first turned on?

Air in the water lines to the upstairs. Not enough water pressure.

What would cause a tub faucet to lose water pressure when the other faucets work?

check for leaks

What would cause the cold water in all your faucets to have zero pressure but the hot water pressure is fine?

Lots of stuf can cause it including sediment or a blocked supply line

What causes sudden pressure surges in your faucets and refrigerator door water dispenser?

I would purchase a Watt water pressure guage from your local home improvement or hardware store and check your water pressure at your faucet. If water pressure is greater than 40-45psi your regulator needs to be turned down where the water comes into the house.

What would cause all water pressure to stop?

Stopped at all faucets? Didn't pay the water bill. If in cold climate, the line from the outside to probably the water heater has probably frozen.

What causes high water pressure in the first faucet on the water line from where it enters the house. The cold water is under high pressure but other faucets in house are fine.?

Possibly a pressure reducing valve installed after piping for first faucet, which would cause situation describing.

What can cause water pressure to slowly drop after the main water valve is shut off and no faucets drip or visable leaks?

With no air in the system anywhere, there would be nothing to hold pressure, so the slightest leak would cause the system to go to zero.

What pushes current through a circuit?

Voltage pushes current through a circuit. A good example of how this works would be water pressure and flow. your faucets at home as long as they are closed have water pressure on them but no flow. You open a faucett and the water starts flowing pushed by the pressure. The voltage is represented by the water pressure and the Current (amps) is represented by the water flow.

Why would water first rush out of faucets and then slow down?

Do all the faucets do this or just one. if its just one faucet its a problem with this fauset. If its all the faucets in the home its a problem with the main water line coming into your home.

Why would there suddenly be no water coming out of the faucets?

There is no water, or water pressure reaching the faucet. This could be that your local water service was shut off; either from no payment, or to fix water lines - to, failure of your well (if you are on a well service) or a rupture of your main supply pipe (of such a severalty that you are getting no pressure).

What would the pressure in your kitchen faucet be low if all other sinks in the house are fine?

Most of the newer kitchen faucets have "flow restrictors" to limit water use.
