Water – Why does only the hot water have low Water Pressure from the 2 handle kitchen faucet


My kitchen faucet is a two handle style with a single delivery spout. The water pressure for the cold water and for ALL the other water sources in the home work fine. The water pressure for the hot water in the kitchen has steadily been getting slower and slower. Today it is a VERY small stream.

Your kitchen hot water faucet probably requires replacement (or possibly repair). From your description it sounds like the hot water side has clogged up to the point that it is restricting the water flow. Most likely cause is heavy calcium deposit inside the faucet and/or the hot water piping leading to the kitchen sink.
