Question No water pressure in galley, plenty in bathroom

Today I flushed out the antifreeze, and filled the freshwater tank. Water is flowing normally in bathroom shower and sink, but only trickles in the kitchen, even with faucet screen removed. I also connected directly to city water with the same result. Pump seems to be working fine.
We had a water-heater bypass installed over the winter at Jackson Center - no other changes that we know of. Any suggestions?

If it's plugged on both the hot and cold position and you're sure the screen/aerator is clean, there must be some gunk in the faucet control. You could take a line loose underneath the faucet to see if water flows, or undo the top of the control and clean it out.

There are two screens. One where the hose connects to the faucet head, and another at the aerator where the water comes out. I would bet that one of them is plugged.

Thanks, we'll try that too. I checked the aerator, didn't know about the one at the faucet head. Will be back at it tomorrow morning.

Problem solved - we think it was air in the line. Turned it on the next morning and it worked fine! However - we then found a leak under the sink - new faucet installed - all is well. Thanks for your help.

Ahh, at last, a simple plumbing fix. The moderators should put a sticky on this thread, because it will never happen again.
