THOR #12405
2018 Thor ACE 32.1 Low water pressure kitchen sink only

The pressure in the kitchen sink has reduced to about 1/4 pressure it used to have. No kinks in the metal feeds to the faucet itself and no kinks in the pull down faucet. All other faucets and toilets have ample pressure. Anyone know what brand of faucet it is? All I can see is UFC stamped on it with no lead printed on it. Any ideas how to take it apart and check for something stuck inside of it?


Thanks!

If it is either hot or cold I'd be looking at the moving hoses as your sink is in a slide. If it's both, I'd look at taking the head apart and cleaning the aerator screen.

Did you try unscrewing the aerator and cleaning the screen?

Even with the head off there is very low pressure.

Itís always something isnít it?! Iíd disconnect the supply line to the faucet and if it flows well there Iíd just replace the faucet. I donít know what Thor uses but mine (SOB) was a pretty low end, mostly plastic thing and I replaced it with a faucet from Home Depot. I needed a ďbar/prepĒ size to be similar but Iím totally happy with the upgrade.

You donít have to replace the faucet just clean it out.

The issue was a tiny filter at the quick connect in the braided mesh line that goes from the faucet to the faucet head.
