Remove all the faucet aerators and flush the system for at least 2-3 minutes. Try not to turn the faucet valves off too hard until you flush the system so you don't embed grit into any faucet washers or washerless valves.

Clean the debris from all aerators. Flush all toilets at least 10 times and check for any debris in the toilet tanks. Clean out as needed.

If you have outdoor spigots, flush those as well.

You could consider adding an inlet strainer to your water supply piping, especially if you are on a well, private or public.

Try cleaning out the aerator assembly. Not totally familiar with model but the cap end of he gooseneck should unscrew or you may have a screw in insert. If cap unscrews, carefully try to remove the screen and flow reduction insert and clean thoroughly and replace. If cap end does not unscrew look at head where water would normally come out. If notice raised ribs and notches see if you can use a straight edge to un screw the aerator. They make special wrenches but I can remove mine with a butter knife edge. If you get water with aerator removed it's definitely clogged up. I've bet this is the case as sprayer and spout are typically ported from same point in faucet assembly. I had a tennants garden tub faucet that did the same thing and the aerator on the spout was clogged with trash.

Briggs Stratton... | Answered 3 days ago

If detergent and scrubbing is not working try a solvent ... but if that does work directly on the stain go the next step and create a poultice by saturating an absorptive material (such as kitty litter or sawdust) with a strong solvent (acetone, xylene, lacquer thinner, or MEK) and then smearing the material over the stain. Cover the poultice with plastic, and let the process of osmosis take over. The solvent will break down the oil, and the absorptive material will suck it out of the concrete. Part of the challenge with oil related stains in concrete is that the material has migrated below the surface into the concrete. The poultice process does takes time and may not be cost-effective or practical for removing large stains.

Appears you have a blockage in the hose itself.
Remove and use a piece of wire to clear the blockage.
