    New hot water tank installed, loss of water pressure
    After the installation of a new hot water tank, we have less pressure which is only noticeable when trying to fill the tub. Any ideas?
    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    Have you checked the faucet assembly to make sure nothing is lodged in the valves and restricting the flow? When you changed the HW heater, you would most probably have sediment, rust, or other items knocked loose and available for causing these kinds of problems.
