Quick Tip: Clean Your Faucet Aerator

If the sink faucet doesn’t work well, take off the aerator (that little cylinder screwed on the end of the spout) and see how the water flows without it. If the water flow is fine, clean or replace the aerator. If the water flow is still bad, the problem is downstream. This is a little bit of trouble, but if you want to see if a faucet is plugged up, shut off the valves to the sink, disconnect the supply pipes from the shutoff valves to the faucet, point them into a bucket, turn the valves on, and see if a lot of water comes out. If it does, may be the problem is inside of the faucet. If not, it is the supply valve or supply piping that is plugged.

Do You Have Slow Hot Water As Well?

If  your water is slow coming out and is not heating up quickly then it may be another common problem that Utah homeowner’s encounter with their water heater is that their hot water runs out faster than it used to. This is caused by an old water heater, and you will need to fix it ASAP or just learn to live with a reduced hot water supply. pssst, I’d choose to fix it if I were you. However, you should not settle for anything less than the best, as this is another problem that can likely be repaired. We even walked a Saratoga Springs homeowner through this over the phone one time and he was able to fix this himself in about 30 minutes. It is possible that mineral deposits, and sediment, at the bottom of your water heater are your blame for this problem. A professional will be able to clean-out your water heater, perform any necessary maintenance and repairs, and get your water heater running efficiently again.
