Help with Bathroom Sink Supply Line
Hi everybody, I'm new to this forum. I've got a problem with my bathroom sink.
The original problem with the sink was that only the cold water ran. I checked the hot water shutoff valve under the sink and someone had turned it off. so I turn it all the way on and blackish water started coming out. It began to clear up, but then it seemed like all water pressure was gone from the sink. both the hot can cold were only coming out a little when I turned the knobs all the way on. So I looked up what the problem might be and one site said their might be a build of of something clogging the supply lines and that if I took them off, I could then clear the lines out and put them back on to fix the problem.
So I turned the valves all the way off and turned the actual sink knobs all the way on to clear out any water left in the supply lines. I then got my basin wrench and took of the nut directly under the sink and then that black plastic ring underneath that. however the supply lines seem to be rooted in the faucet. and I cant get them out. any ideas? I can provide pictures if necessary. thanks in advance

Most likly it's just the aeriators pluged up, remove it and run some water and clean it out.
