Step 2 – Try Cleaning The Aerator
As we have discussed above, most of the time the issue of water pressure can be solved simply by cleaning the aerator by running it through a stream of water and removing the debris through any sharp object or using cleaning agents like vinegar.
Step 3 – Get A New Aerator
If cleaning the aerator doesn’t help, then you need to get a new aerator which matches the previous one for your faucet.
Step 4 – Turn Your Faucet On
Once you are done cleaning your aerator or you purchased a new one, be sure to turn your faucet on to get rid of any particles or debris inside the spout.
Step 5 – Reinstall Your New Or Cleaned Aerator
Time to put the cleaned or new aerator back on and that should solve the water pressure issue of your faucet. If it still doesn’t solve, then make sure your shut off valve is completely turned to right and your supply line is clean.
