Water pressure very low at bathroom sink only

1974 Airstream Overlander good pressure at kitchen sink and bathroom shower but no pressure at bathroom sink? Is there a filter at sink or hot water heater that could be plugged?

If there is a faucet aerator it could be plugged. Unscrew and inspect it. You can check if the water runs with it off too.

Is there some reason you have started a new thread? In your other one:

Did you try the city water idea? Yes the bath sink might also have an aerator filter, or crud stuck in the H/C valves if they are OEM from 1974.

Thanks,

Peter

PS -- It gets really confusing here if more than one thread discusses the same topic IMO.

Hi

Having two threads can make for a lot of duplication of comments and it gets tough to work out which one to post in ....

Toilet is on the cold water line. Sink has two lines to it, one hot and the other cold. If the cold water line is plugged, that would not impact hot water to the sink .... thus the question in the other thread about "what about hot water". If the screen on the faucet / faucet valve is the issue, then both could be impacted.

Actually, there are many threads in the Forums that discuss the same issue.....hitches and tow vehicles come to mind!

Yes, but not started by the same person in quick succession, with the same basic problem IMO.

I guess I only meant to reply to the original thread. The shower does have pressure and I will check the screen on the faucet today. Both the hot and cold water just dribble. Thanks and sorry about the duplicate post
