 Faucet Pressure Drop
Author: JLectric11 (CO)

We just moved into a house. The faucet had very poor pressure and checking the lines below the sink showed that there was sufficient water pressure. We replaced the faucet and the water pressure was normal. Five days later the water pressure again dropped to be poor and only a trickle comes through.
The other faucets in the house have normal pressure. Even when the pressure was normal, the hot water warmed up very slowly.

EDIT: There is a build up in the faucet catch. Removing it shows that the faucet has ample pressure. What should I ask the city water supplier to find out what is causing the catch to gunk up so fast?

Thank you.

if the problem is with only one faucet then the debris you are seeing is not from the water main.
can you describe the debris?
