SOURCE: No water pressure in kitchen sink. Not the aerator.

First of all we like to check the easy/cheap things first.

1. Are the shut-off valves closed lightly?

If they are closed, open them.....easiest fix of them all.

2. If the valves are open then possibly a washer is shifted.

Turn off the water supply at the valves under the sink. Remove the handles by removing the set screw under the handles. There should then be a packing nut which holds all of the "guts" of the faucet in. Remove this nut and pull out the long stem. On the bottom of this stem is a flat washer that may have been damaged or is just slightly shifted. EIther way, I would replace it if the faucet is more then a few years old as it is cheap and you already have access to it. WHen replacing the valve stem, be sure to use a plumbers grease on all rings and seals. The rest of the replacement is the same are the removal.



Hope this helps.

1. If it is old enough, it is time to replace the control cartridge.

2. Check your supply stops under the counter, check that they are both supplying full pressure.

SOURCE: Hansgrohe Kitchen Faucet low water pressure

Try removing the aerator and handspray to clean out any debris that may have accumulated. After 8 years there could be quite a buildup if it hasn't been regularly cleaned.

SOURCE: installed new delta leland 978 kitchen faucet.

check the angle stop under sink as sometimes the washer gets lodged in the orifice to stop..make sure water is off to house before removing handle to stop...check the hose...then the stem and seat to faucet itself.

My kitchen faucet has low water pressure both hot & cold. My faucet is a Bixby 538. I removed the spray head and the pressure is still very low. The pressure is good up to the shut off valves under...


If you have pressure to the shut off valves then most likely your shut off valves are not fully opening, I would recommend you replace both valves, they build up water deposits in them a lot of the times. The other possibility is the faucet itself has a water saver filter built into it. A lot of the new faucets have water savers built into them now.

New moen kitchen single handle. Worked for one full day. Now no water pressure.


Unthread end of faucet (aerator) where the water comes out into sink, under the aerator is a screen & a plastic valve.It has sediment & rust which will disrupt the flow & pressure.Careful not to flush it down the drain. Tip upside down, while holding it together with finger. Flush it under the faucet. It is not uncommon to get plugged up initialy because of the new installation.

The water pressure pushes the faucet spout out of the faucet assembly. I tried to screw it back in without success.


If you are talking about a kitchen faucet. I would guess that you either have WAY too much water pressure or you are missing the little c-ring clip on your spout. Most are round plastic ring with split on one side. Some are metal. They usualy fit in one of the slots on the end of your spout. Hope this helps.

Water pressure in kitchen faucet decreased...no change in pressure elsewhere.


ON the end of the faucet you will most likely find a screw on fitting on the very end. This contains a screen or aerator. This can become clogged up with hard water deposits or dirt and debris that has gotten into the water. Remove the end and clean out the wire screen and place it back on the faucet.

Water flow is too powerful..


I got you, you want a screen to be put on the spout!
check the inside of the spout. there may be a internal thread, if it is, then you can get a external thread screen from home depot.
