Low water pressure

Got the old prv off. Nothing looked out of the ordinary. Screen was fairly clean. Damaged in a few spots which I thought was odd

Started to feel inside the passage ways and something was wedged inside, I could barely move it with my finger. So I took it all apart and found this (more fell out too as I took it apart

The diaphragm was also in pretty rough shape. I went to go get a rebuild kit but couldn't find any locally. So, I wound up with a new Zurn prv for $130. Plumbed it in and could immediately hear a strong flow of water. Every faucet and spigot ran when opened. Set the presure to 68-70. So, problem solved.

All good is always a nice outcome.
