F1 fills one-eighth per minute, F1 & F2 together fill one-fifth per minute, so F2 is responsible for one-fifth less one-eighth ie three-fortieths per minute so F2 alone would take 40/3 ie 13 min 20 sec.

### How do you fix low water pressure due to calcium build up?

If you notice reduced pressure in one of your faucets and not other faucets, and notice that the flow is reduced in both the hot and cold sides of the same faucets then it is probably your aerator. If it is only on one side of your faucet (hot or cold side) then it is probably a mineral buildup in the valve of the faucet (you can clean that side or replace the valves components.) You can also try to loosen the mineral deposits by... first removing the aerator then turn off the supply line valve ( the valve under the sink, several times) to try and dislodge the mineral deposit; if you leave the drain stopper closed and place a dark colored wash rage in the sink, you may notice the deposits flowing through the faucet. While you have the aerator removed clean that or replace it, they are cheap.) If all this fails then you will probably have to replace the valve under the sink.
