Kitchen Faucet


We had a friend install a new faucet in our kitchen about a year and a half ago. In the past six months the faucet's pressure is getting worse. I have taken it apart and flushed it but it still seems to have low pressure. any ideas.

It could be a number of things. Perhaps its not a name brand faucet, you're line running to your faucet is built up with minerals, you're angle stop valves may be going bad. If you used pipe dope to seal the threads on the supply underneath, then the pipe dope is going to collect in the screen at the of the shaft of your faucet. Good luck, but there are many things that could at fault.
