Low kitchen tap pressure

I only have less than a pencil width of water coming out of both hot and cold water kitchen taps. All others flow full stream.
Any ideas on what to look for? And where?

Take your screen out of the tap.
It probably needs cleaned.

Yep, if there are more than two try just two.

Is this a new problem or existing from new? Sometimes construction debris can get into the lines and pile up at the elbows or where the pipes go into the faucet. Check the screens first, but if it doesn't help then disassemble the faucet itself and see if there is any constriction in there. the fact that it is only happening to one faucet AND both hot and cold suggest it is in the faucet or the screen at the tap.

If your sink is in a slide the lines may be pinched also.

My Georgetown XL gave me grief from new to about a year and one half out with plugged screens in both the kitchen and bathroom faucets and the toilet. Every time we went out camping everything would plug up. I got into a routine of cleaning the screens every time we set up. Finally, whatever was in the tanks got flushed out. The material was black plastic looking debris. Good luck with the problem and Happy New Year.

Check the screen at the hook up in your utilities center as well. Mine was pretty dirty there and at the kitchen sink. After it was cleaned the pressure returned to normal. It's easy to overlook the easy things when you start thinking from worst case scenario.

Had the same problem, but mine was white particles and calcium. Still getting it no matter how many times we flushed the tanks
