SOURCE: Low Water Pressure in Kitchen Faucet

The filter screen in the faucet is probably clogged, Use pliers covered in a pair of dishwashing gloves ( so your won't scratch your faucet) and remove the tip of the faucet where the water come out. Clean the screen and you should be back to 100%. If it's because of mineral build up, you will have to soak the piece in lime-away.

Your problem is a simple one.

  1. Turn off water to faucet.
  2. Place a towel(s) in the base of the sink(s) to prevent any parts from going down drain.
  3. Remove the handle to the faucet. (single handle only)
  4. If not a single handle then remove spout from faucet.
  5. If a single handle remove cap carefully and any loose parts.
  6. Gently turn spout side to side while lifting to remove.
  7. You will see a hole with a very small valve where the water comes out to the spout on the base of the faucet.

  1. Remove this valve (which is a backflow preventer) and replace.
  2. Reassemble and test.
Problem solved.

SOURCE: low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.

  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

pull the sprayer out, get some plyers or a wrench and losen up the connection. between the hose and the sprayer there is usually a screen take it out and walla it should take care of you, it also helps to leave the sprayer in some lime away or vinegar for a few hrs to get the hard water losened up in it

Point your water line into a bucket and turn the water on at the wall. If you get a good flow, we'll go back to the faucet. No kinks in the supply lines, right? The reason I ask is this was reminiscent of a recent problem where my friend could get hot water to the faucet, and it would slowly go down to a trickle. The problem was that the supply hose had a bit of a kink in it, and got choked off when the line got hot.
OK, good flow into the bucket. Sometimes the supply lines can delaminate, and choke the water off as well. Since you have a sprayer faucet combo, make sure that the flex hose that dispenses the water, and has the weight on it to retract the nozzle back up doesn't have a kink either. Remove the spray nozzle, and try the faucet, holding onto the hose. It's possible that the spray selector could have a problem, so check the spray head and diffuser. With the water on, push the sprayer button, and see if the problem might be there. Remove the aerator on the end of the sprayer, and check the screens for pluggage. My guess is that the issue is in the spray head.
Best regards, --W/D--

Water pressure


Here is what should be going on.
There is a length of pipe between the hot water that is in your tank and the nozzle you are expecting to get it out of.
It is really possible the are nearly 3 gallons of water in those pipes, especially if the water heater is many feet from the faucet.
Now about the drop in water pressure.
Try the cold water.
Does it do the same as the hot? Does the pressure drop after 2 - 5 minutes?
If so, suspect your pipes are clogged with sediment. How old are the pipes and the house/apartment?
Does the water contain minerals that clog pipes?
If the cold water is good, and the hot not, I should suspect there is blockage in the hot water pipes, especially going in to or coming out of the water heater., or perhaps the faucet is clogged with rust or deposits.
God bless your efforts.

Check under the sink at the valves that the hot and cold water lines are connected to. See if the hot water one is turned on all the way.

You have a clog in the hot water line.
If problem is at one faucet, then remove aerator and clean, then disassemble lines underneath sink.

If problem is at every faucet, then that moves search close to water heater.
Look at hot water line that exits water heater and trace that line to first Tee.
Look at cold water line that enters water heater and trace that line to Tee.
Clog is located between those 2 Tees.

Buy pressure tester that connects to hose thread.
geno_3245_251.jpg
Connect pressure gauge to hot water heater drain valve.
Then conduct same test you did at faucet.
See if pressure drops at tank.

If pressure drops, then clog is on cold side of tank, and probably hot side too.
If pressure does not drop, then clog is on hot side of tank.

Suspect 1 is any place two different metals join. For example galvanized pipe and copper.
Suspect 2 is supply pipes that exit top of tank. Take apart and look inside pipes for corrosion and sediment lining pipe walls.
Suspect 3 is elbow. Disassemble pipes and look for sediment and flakes of rust.
Suspect 4 is all suspects above, each having sediment and corrosion.

No water coming from hot valve on faucets


Have you thought about possible calcium buildup in your hot water tank/pipes? I am helping a friend in Palm Springs CA (California not Canada) and we are going to pour a really huge pile of vinegar into the hot water tank (let it sit for a day) then open up the hot water taps to the kitchen (where we don't have hot water flowing very well), then going to let everything sit for another day. Remove the aerator from the kitchen faucet after letting the vinegar/water solution sit in the pipes for a day, and turn on the kitchen hot water tap. Once all the **** is drained out, you must of course drain out the vinegar/water solution from your hot water tank or you will smell like French Fries (in Canada we put vinegar on French Fries) when you shower for a few days.

If you don't understand what the basic chemistry of dissolving calcium via this method is all about, then please call a professional plumber. Hope this helps, and remember that Google is your friend (sometimes), but be careful...

What is that rattling sound when i use my kitchen faucet in the extreme hot or extreme cold position?


Water hammer: is a loud banging or clanging of the pipes usually occurring when a valve is turned on or off due to loose pipes.

Solution: Anchor the offending pipes to the wall. Buy water hammer arrestors. Also Lower the water pressure with a pressure reducing valve

Hope this tip Helps.

The problem is that when you disturb the galv. pipes, the gunk inside breaks loose, and travels to the faucets, gets stuck, and limits the volume of water that comes out.
If possible open the lines at the service valves, and force water through the spigot to fluch out the faucet. The service value could also be partially clogged, keep that in mind
