Low water pressure

RayH Member Posts: 98
I have a customer with a domestic coil and well water. The water is hot out of all faucets but with much lower pressure than the cold. The mixing valve was taken apart and flushed of lots of rusty water. Is there any way to treat this issue without replacing the coil or mixing valve?

    The coil may have built up a lot of scale -- sometimes well water is pretty hard. You could try disconnecting it and circulating a vinegar solution through it, perhaps? I'm not sure I'd go for anything more vigorous, as it is potentially used for drinking!
