I have well water and a pump and a filter system

We changed the filter and now I have no water pressure , it just barely comes out . Can't flush toilets or take shower . I did go from a cheap filter to a charcoal filter . Would that make it do that?

    Check your pressure tank, this is what gives you water pressure. The bladder in the tank either has a hole or has lost pressure. You can check yourself or get a plumber or well specialist

    Most charcoal filters are low flow filters not meant to supply a whole house. Try removing the filter for a test to see if that is the issue. Is that fixes the issue, purchase the correct filter.

    A flat bladder will will not cause all pressure to be lost. It would cause frequent pump cycling.

    Could your filter be in backwards?
