      I installed a water heater the other day and turned on my kitchen faucet to help relieve the pressure from the pipes while the old water heater was being drained. After I installed the new water heater, I turned my main supply valve on with the kitchen faucet still in the “open” position and heardly got any pressure out of the kitchen faucet. I had the same trouble in my bathroom, but it corrected itself in about 6 months. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

      Sincerely,
      Guy with tomato seeds stuck on his dishes!!!

      What you did was disturb the pipes and all that dirt and solder paste if you used some. It got into the aerator in the faucet, unscrew it and see if you have more water also clean aerator before you put it back, if thats not it then you got some obstruction some where in the line maybe a valve or stops under the sink.
