We just bought a 6 year old home.
It has copper plumbing and city water.
The water pressure coming out of both outside water hose bibs are 57 PSI.
The 1st floor washing machine has great pressure.
The 1st floor sink has OK pressure(This is in the same room as the washing machine).
The 1st floor kitchen sink has good pressure.
The 2nd floor has 2 bathrooms and neither one has good water pressure. I replaced the shower heads and I'm still not getting very good pressure.

Any ideas or coments would be greatly appreciated!

Make sure that all cut-off valves are fully open.
Go to "Repair/Fix-It" above, look in the Plumbing section under faucets, and find your type for an illustrated how-to repair/replace.
Good Luck!
