    New to the forum and have a problem that has me stumped. I have a house with a well and a submersible pump. Behind the house I own 2 apartments. The well supplies water to all. When my tenants moved out the ran out of fuel, so being in upstate New York the pipes froze. I got the pipes unffroze and replaced all of the busted ones. Now to the problem. The fuacets in the apartments have very little water coming from them. The bathtubs work great as do the washing machines and toilets. What could be causing the problem with the faucets? I have the heat cranked up so no problems there. Also they have no pressure with hot water either. Sorry for the long post but I figure the more info the better.

    Thanks in advance,

    The most obvious answer is that the problem is in the faucet, which means the most likely problem is debris in the aerator on the end of the spout. Which is the first place the average person would check.

    Thanks for the quick response. Ok now I feel sort of stupid. I cleaned the aerator in the first apartment and that fixed this one. Now the kitchen faucet in the other apartment has Hot water but no cold water. Could there be debris clogging the suplly line?
