Question about Kohler Fort© Single Lever Handle Kitchen Faucet with Side Spray Polish
When disconnecting supply line and blowing air back thru line it will increase the flow for a short time then reverts back to little to no pressure. We replaced hot water heater which was breaking down at the core and putting a white crystal like subatance in the lines. We have cleaned hot water aerators thru out the house. Everything works except the Kohler 597 faucet.
You almost had the problem solved. After you back flush the faucet you need to disconnect the line just before the faucet and then run the water into a bucket or down the drain until the line is flushed out. Depending on the size and amount of debris in the line you may have to flush the line further back until you get all the junk out.
The white crystal like substance is scale, a build up of minerals from your water. It might be worth your while to check into a water softener. Most water softener companies will do free water testing to help you determine if you need one. Beware of the high pressure sales gimics though.
