I built a house about a year or so ago. My problem is that I get low water volume even though my pressure is about 56 psi. I have copper pipe throughout (3/4 main and 1/2 supply). I have no idea what is causing this.

Cool

dan,
Make sure that all valves (from Main to individual fixture cut-offs) are wide open and clean out all faucet aerators and showerheads, and see if that doesn't help solve the problem.
If it doesn't, just come back on this thread, and we'll try to help you.
Good Luck!

All my valves are wide open and aerators/heads have been cleaned out with the same results.

Are you on a well or public water supply?
