Re: Refrigerator slow water
There may be debris at the valve that was broken loose when the previous owner/tenant disconnected their fridge. Connect a hose from the valve into a bucket and work the valve on/off several times, this may dislodge any debris blocking the valve. You may want a helper for this, extra hands are always a good thing.
Note the water pressure/flow through the valve before and after you do this procedure to see if there is a difference.
You may also want to test the water flow through both the old and the new filter. If the flow is fine at the valve, then the new filter may have some sort of clog.
As far as the refrigerator, all there should really be is the on/off valve in the door where you put your glass. The refrigerator does not increase/decrease pressure of its own accord.
