It is probably a clogged airator. If the faucet is the type where the spout is attatched to a hose there may be a screen where the hose attaches to the spout. with the spout off check the flow through the hose. If the flow at the hose is good then the problem is in the spout. Most of the time it is in the spout. you can replace just the spout if you cannot find a screen or airator to clean.

We flushed our hot water tank and after that we have very little pressure our 122-426 b&K kitchen faucet. Changed the cartridge and cleaned the aerator


There's a little filter in faucet head and it may have got backed up with calcium from old water heater when changed.. U can just pop it out with lil knife and then run faucet with hot water to get any build up.. U can pick up more screen filters at local hardware store for cheap..

We have a Delta 172 single handle faucet. We had our hot water heater replaced. Now it takes longer for hot water to get to the faucet. Could debris (calcium build up, etc.) from the replacement get in...


Yes, debris from water heater replacements often breaks lose and gets stuck. The problem could potentially be anywhere between water heater and the faucet. The faucets shut off valves or the Delta faucet cartridge itself. Turn the hot and cold water valves off under the sink and disconnect the water supply lines from the faucet. aim the water supply lines into a bucket and turn the valves on one at a time. If there is a significant reduction in the water pressure and volume on the hot water side, you need to replace the shut off valve. If there is no reduction in water pressure, you need to clean and/or replace the Delta faucet cartridge. Contact Delta to receive free replacement parts.

LOW PRESSURE HOT WATER SIDE


Disassemble the hot water valve. Look for calcium or any other materials, and clean. If you see white plastic particles, then it's probably from your water heater down tube

Cold water works, hot does not


your problem can be fixed by running a loop in the plumbing. If you hired a professional in the first place it would already be done. basically the water pressure isn't enough, i bet your faucet is on the second or third floor, or even just THAT far from the water heater.

Only hot water, no cold water.


The cartridges in the single handle units are prone to display this issue in hard water areas as mineral deposits such as calcium build up on the stem. The stems also have small rubber band like rings - for lack of a better term- that break apart and can clog the ports on the side where the are on. New stem should resolve the issue totally unless you have had a pipe break or other construction to the plumbing system recently. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
