Water pressure decrease when new dishwasher was installed


Water pressure change after new dishwasher install

Hi there,This is my first time posting. I have just installed a new dishwasher as my old one was broken but I noticed that the water pressure on my kitchen Faucet has gotten much lower so it does not run as it used to since I installed the new dishwasher. The new dishwasher seems to be working fine. It was suggested that I check the aerator of the Faucet but Iím not sure where that is. I have attached some photos so can anyone tell me where I would find the aerator on my sink Fossett in the kitchen? Any advice would be helpful.Thank you,R

Re: Water pressure decrease when new dishwasher was installed


Usually where the water exits there will be a aerator screwed on that often partially plugs with debris when plumbing work is being accomplished. Made to unscrew but don't be surprised if that fails as plumber's water proof grease is seldom applied to the threads during installation.

Google aerator.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faucet_aerator

It should unscrew by hand.

Let me under stand this, Dishwasher needed replacement.
Closed the hot line to the dishwasher and change the dishwasher?
Why did the cold to the sink get closed?
Either the close faucet or angle stop is not fully open or will need a replacement because it will not fully open any more.

You can get a rebuild kit for those valves but I'd put in some quarter turn ball valve shutoffs.
