Recently, I've been having low water pressure at almost any time of the day and at almost any faucet (including the showerhead). Unlike Crushenberry (5/28) I have public water instead of a well. Sometimes the pressure will increase after a few moments and sometimes it takes a lot longer. The only change is the dishwasher that I added (thanks for the help with that one) to the kitchen. I have checked the incoming shut off valve and it is open full. I was thinking that it was the water heater but that doesn't make any sense to me. Any help from the community is appreciated.

Since you added the dw, have you removed and cleaned the debris out of the showerhead and all faucet aerators?
If you're on public water, do you know if you have a Pressure Reducing Valve (if you do, it may need adjusting, repair or replacement)?
Do you have galvanized water supply pipes?
