Currently have a gravity fed water system, asked a plumber to change the mixer taps in the kitchen. Bought taps suitable for a low pressure system. With the new tap the hot water seems incredibly slow compared with the old tap, it's literally half the rate of the cold tap. I measured the flow rates and the cold water tap comes out around 15 litres per min whilst the hot tap comes out around 7.5 litres per min. There's no kinks in any of the hoses which are brand new anyway. 
Is this an acceptable flow rate for this system or is there something wrong?
