Remove the Aeators on the faucets, clean or replace.
The tub faucet may need to be back flushed.
You would unhook the hot supply to the water heater, and hold something over the tub spout.
This way, you can run the cold back through the hot pipes, back to the water heaters.
Find a way to drain it there. You don't want the crud you wash out back in the tank.

: 1 week ago the water main burst near a neighbor's house. The water company shut off all water for a few hours. Since water restarted, pressure problems in my second bath: water just trikles in basin faucet (both hot and cold), and tub (hot only). No such problems anywhere else in the house. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help.
