I bought my house a few months ago and the water pressure is good everywhere except the kitchen faucet. Cold water pressure is noticeably stronger than hot water pressure. (Only in kitchen). What could be the issue?
Thank you for your question. Issues with the flow rate dropping, and being able to be restored again are usually casused by debris that has lodged itself in the faucet. To correct the issue that you are having you would need to flush your faucet.
First, you will want to turn the water off to the faucet at the stops below your sink. Then, turn your handle into the full on and warm position.
Next, you will need to have a container such as a bucket or kettle and go beneath the sink. There you will disconnect the hot water side and aim the supply line from the faucet into the container. Then, you will turn the cold water on at the stop. This will send some water out the hot side into the bucket, thus removing any debris that may be present.
Afterwards, turn off the cold water, reconnect the hot supply line and repeat the steps to flush the cold side.
