Yes.  Check the filters fitted into the spouts of the taps.  (mine just unscrew with finger pressure.)They get clogged up and cause back pressure as well as loss of water flow.

I agree.  They can get so clogged with limescale that you have no flow at all.  Easy fix if it is this problem

I think that they’re aerators, rather than filters - but nevertheless they do end up being clogged with various bits of detritus.

 

Mine was quite a tight fit ... ... then I remembered the funny little plastic gizmo found in the cutlery tray when I got the van and that did the trick.

Omf, l think you’ll find that Nanamel (who you replied to) is a lady - and is therefore unlikely to be called John😦.

And secondly, the thread concerns fresh water, not grey.

Do you have a water filter outside next to the water filler connection?

That could be dirty.  Most people take them out and throw them away!
