I just moved into my house and my hot water pressure just dropped. I have the washing machine on and I can't get any pressure to my upstairs shower or sink. It does come out downstairs but very little. Can anyone tell me how to adjust the pressure? We have a well if that helps.
Thanks!

Find where the water service enters the house. Right before the shutoff valve, there may be a pressure regulator. Adjust the pressure there. Also, use a pressure gauge to see how much pressure you actually have in both the hot and cold systems, and how much pressure drop occurs when the washing machine is filling.
