Kitchen and Bathroom Faucet Aerator Maintenance
If the water pressure has decreased in your faucet, the aerator may be the culprit. The tiny mesh of the aerator can get clogged with silt and debris, or with the buildup of minerals from the water. However, this is usually a quick and easy fix. To clean the aerator, simply unscrew and remove the mesh. It may simply need rinsing and scrubbing off with a small brush, like an old toothbrush. Mineral buildup can be removed by soaking the aerator in a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar for several hours, or using a mild descaler, such as Lime-Away. Flush the faucet before replacing the aerator to get rid of any unwanted sediment. If the buildup will not come off, replacing the aerator is an inexpensive and easy solution to getting your water running smoothly again.
