I recently replace my water heater and every time I drained it and
turned off the cold and hot water valves and then filled it back up,
the pressure in my kitchen would be almost 0. Within a day or 2 it
slowly came back. It happened both times I went through that process
while trying to repair my old WH. Now that I have replaced it I again
get no pressure and it is not getting any better. It has been 3+ days.
Is it possible there is an air pocket somewhere? (this seems unlikely
given that I have let it run) Could something have clogged the faucet
in the process?
The same thing happened to me when I moved in a replaced the WH. I turned
on the water and about 2 years of rush flowed into the aerators and plugged
them up solid. A quick test is to take the aerator off and see if the
pressure goes up. It might also be the valves, they get plugged too.
