Low Water Pressure


I replaced my hot water heater in my house. All went well but when I was all done, the water pressure in my kitchen sink was low. I went back and made sure that I had turned back on everything and everything looks exactly the same to me. I even took the faucet off and made sure the screen was not gunked up with anything. I cannot understand why this may have happened. Any ideas???

Yes, everything else in the house is normal. I am completely puzzled.

Low Water Pressure


sounds like you have trash in the one of the stems. Take the hot and cold water stems out and make sure there are no trash in there. If it is a single lever faucet take the catridge out and see.
