Having low water pressure sucks when you’re trying to brush your teeth or use the sink throughout the day. Social Nope on YouTube has an easy fix for low water pressure in the kitchen sink or bathroom. The low water pressure causes hot water to warm up slower too. I know this from experience because on cold mornings, I’d wait forever for the water to heat up before brushing my teeth. It doesn’t take much to fix the low water pressure, but the aerator can cost about $5. You don’t need to buy one if your old work still works after cleaning it. An aerator is a laminar flow. This can be an easy fix without having to spend money on calling a plumber. Plus, it takes less than 5 minutes to fix.

Supplies:

  • Aerator (if the previous one on the faucet does not work after cleaning)
  • Channellock

Directions:

First, take the Channellock and get the faucet loose to screw it off with your hand.

Next, switch out the aerator with the red facing the top and put the flange back. However, try to clean your old aerator to see if that fixes the problem before purchasing one. Then, Screw it back onto the faucet and use the Channellock to secure it.

Overall, I’ve had many problems in the past where I thought the water pressure was low because of the water pipes, but now I know it’s the aerator’s problem. This is a life hack because it happens to many households. I’ve never had to fix it for myself, but I’ve been to some people’s houses and noticed the low water pressure. This would be a great tip to pass on to friends and family if I come across a sink with low water pressure.
