Low water pressure in kitchen sink only

lulee59October 5, 2013

Please see my attached pic as I dont know the technical names. The water pressure is very low. I have removed the screw on part and cleaned. No change. Even running water with the end off, pressure very low. This is where my confusion starts. The sprayer. The pressure was so low at one point I removed the spray nozzle to clean. I turned on faucet and water came out hose. Not the faucet. Now this started when water was turned off to fix dripping shower head. Still drips but I wasnt involved. I read that when turning the main off and on the pressure could have sent junk to the sink pipes. Yes there is a dishwasher but does not work and water has been turned off for a while. Where would I start under the sink?

If both hot and cold are low at kitchen but ok everywhere else,make sure angle stops under sink are completly open. After that,it would probibly be inside facuet that requires taking it apart. That isn't an expensive facuet so it might be more expedient to replace it than repair.

This exact same thing happened to us, water pressure only low in the kitchen and the angle stops were completely open.
Next step is to check if the filter in your tap is clogged. Use a spanner to take the head off of the tap to check. Ours was clogged with little stones and shells. I dread to think what we have been drinking that didn't get stuck in the filter! We cleaned it using a toothbrush and pins to get the little stones that were really stuck in there.
