Really weak kitchen sink
 
Getting ready to move in to our new house, but one weird plumbing issue to sort out. The kitchen sink is really weak. All the other sinks in the house are fine on pressure, and the shut-off valves under the sink are fully open. Suggestions on next things to check?

Check the aerator on the end of the spout (or the screens between the spray head and the hose).

Let us know what sort of faucet---the pullout ones have a filter in the hose at the head and a back flow preventer at the hose/valve connection

if it's the hot and cold same faucet its the air screen or something in the neck spout...solder ball flux from the install flush out will do it
