Your Shower Is Lame, Your Dishwasher Doesn’t Work, and Your Clothes are Dirty

It’s not just about the showerhead.
The water pressure in our homes and apartments has been gradually getting worse for two decades, thanks to EPA mandates on state and local governments. This has meant that even with a good showerhead, the shower is not as good as it might be. It also means that less water is running through our pipes, causing lines to clog and homes to stink just slightly like the sewer. This problem is much more difficult to fix, especially because plumbers are forbidden by law from hacking your water pressure. | Foundation for Economic Education [HT: Never Yet Melted]

Your Say

I don't believe that's true at all. Even if it was lower water pressure would not cause your water to stink or clog your pipes. There are flow restrictors in your shower head and faucet but they come out pretty easily. It's true that dishwashers and washing machines don't work as well but a little trisodium phosphate in them makes them work fine.
