    Hey everybody, i recently removed my water tank to tile to floor in the room it was in. when i put it back all the water was fine and working well except my kitchen sink. The faucet in the kitchen now has a very low flow maybe about twice as less then it was normally before. All the other faucets in the washrooms are working fine like before except this one, anyone might know what the problem might be that killed my flow in the kitchen?

    Remove the aerator from the spout outlet and check and clean it if necessary. That often fixes it. It may have been the first fixture opened after the work on the system, and any crud that got loosened in the pipes by shutting down, and repressurizing the system sent it there. Sometimes, there are filter screens on the inlets, but check the spout first.
