 Hot water recirculator
Author: srtrost (FL)

I have a recirculator under a bathroom sink. Yesterday I turned off control valves to sink, then turned them
back on. Nothing else. There is now very low flow from the faucet. It seems like there must be air in the lines
or something else. Any hint about what to do

It is NOT air, and I do not know why people's first reaction to something like this is "air in the lines". If it were air, it would be expelled as soon as you turned the faucet on. Try removing the aerator on the end of the faucet and cleaning it.

the faucet does not have aerator. In fact, I was trying to change cartridge. I did change it, but the problem I have
started before the change - simply turning off then on the water supply caused the flow to go very low.

then there is 'debris' in ther somewhere. try removing the cartridge and turning the water on briefly. hang a big towel over the faucet to catch the water.
