Question about Water Heaters
I recently purchased a Moen 87350esrs kitchen faucet. The water pressure seems to be really low. No way am I getting the 2 gal/min that I should be. It's more like 1 gal/min

I found a way to get warm water in the shower, but I'm not sure it qualifies as a solution. After trying everything else I thought that maybe when I was feathering the faucet in the shower toward the cold side so I would get warm water that at a certain point it blocked the flow on the hot water side enough so that the sensor in the hot water heater sensed there was no demand in the line and it shut the water heater off. To test this, I went to the kitchen and turned the kitchen sink faucet all the way to the hot side and then turned it on so that I got a small flow of water. I waited for the water to get hot to be sure the hot water heater was working. Once it was hot, I left it running to keep demand in the line and then I went to the shower and turned the faucet on. When the water got hot I started feathering the control towards the cold side and soon I had warm water. So I think I'm right in that the sensor in the hot water heater was shutting the water heater off when the demand in the shower was lowered to a certain point when I was trying to adjust the water temp in the shower.
So now I can get warm water, but it means I have to leave the hot water running at another fixture in the house to create a false demand in the system so the hot water heater doesn't shut down. Is there a way to adjust the senor in the hot water heater so that it will stay on when I'm using the shower only, so I don't have to waste water by running another faucet when I want to take a shower?

you can put in a circulatating pump that is controller with a timer and a thermostat so the when yo need heat water the most its readilly available and when you don't it's off, the only thinsg thing that you would have to do it tye in the supply and the return and then insulate the pipes.

It sounds like a clog internally. Sometimes o-rings, or just debris (like scale) in the water will cause a blockage. If you decide to "operate" on it, make sure you shut off your water supply. If it's old, you may not be able to buy spare parts and should consider a full replacement.

SOURCE: I replaced cpvs after freeze.
The most likely thing in the kitchen sink is that the aereator on the end of the faucet is plugged....take it off and see if you have at least cold water pressure...
As far as the hot water goes...there is dirt either caught in a valve or in the heat check on the hot water heaters... many hot water heaters have ball checks built in to them and the smaller hole can become clogged with dirt...the freeze likely released a bunch of junk into you system...
