Kitchen sink.

Has anyone changed the kitchen sink to get better water flow?? Someone previous suggested there was a pressure reducer just before the faucet connection. I haven't been able to find that so I am thinking of changing the faucet with a new one from home depot or something. Anyone do this? If so did you get better water flow?

Would it be possible for you to take a picture of it. I would like to remove it. The only thing I see is where the hose connects to the faucet itself.

we changed ours out after the handle broke, bought one at the hardware store with a bonus separate sprayer head. Changed out the bathroom faucet at the same time, didn't want the same thing happening during our 3 month trip last year. Very simple to do. DH did the kitchen as he had to drill the hole for the bonus sprayer and I did the bathroom change. I really like the extra sprayer head on a hose.

Do you have a rigid outlet that swivels side to side or a pull out faucet head/ sprayer?

Assuming you have the pull out combo unscrew the hose from the base of the pull out sprayer head .
It should be there.

My unit is 90 miles away and wont see it till late friday evening.

The brass peice in the hose? If so how did you get it out? The handle side had a small valve. Looks like a back flow or something. I removed it and didn't see a difference.

Are you sure it's the faucet? My 2014 390BH's water pressure is perfect. Weather on city hook up or pump, all of my faucets have strong pressure. I would ensure the lines are all good.

This is the flow on the kitchen faucet. Everything else is really good. It's always been much lower than the rest. I have traced the lines back as far as I can and haven't seen any reason for the low flow. I was just thinking it could be the faucet or a pressure reducer somewhere.
