Sudden drop in water pressure throughout house

Why would all of the sudden our water pressure drop. We used to have great pressure and now it's weak. Any ideas?

Thanks

Are you on a well or municipal water service? Do you have any whole house water filters in place? This will give us a better starting point.

First, check with neighbors water pressure changes, if any. Then, if no change on their end, you have to see what kind of pressure/volume you have coming out the first outlet past your meter. You may have an outdoor spigot nearby that might be a good place to start. Post back any gpm timed tests you might take. Tell us also if you have older galvanized pipes.

It was the main water line, $4000 later we have our pressure back.
