  • outside faucet--low water pressure

    We recently had our outside faucet fixed because it was leaking and it wasnt the washer. The plumber came and had to install a new faucet. Well we later noticed when we hooked up the hose/sprinklers that there is hardly any water pressure (it was fine before). The inside and backyard faucets still work just fine. Is it the new faucet he installed? What can we do to fix it?

    Did he thread or solder it on.

    sometimes you can drill out the port inside after shutting off the water and disassembling the hose bib while its still attached to the house.

      Is there a reason you cannot call the plumber back out to fix it? Assuming it was something he did it should not cost you anything.

        sounds like the faucet the plumber installed has a built in vacuum breaker on it.
        can you post a photo of it?

        or does the invoice state the part?

        call the plumber and ask them if there is a vacuum breaker on the new hose bibb.
