Davis Plumbing Tip
Does your water pressure seem low at the faucet? It's a good idea to check the aerator on the end of the faucet where the water comes out. This part can become clogged with debris over time. Just unscrew the aerator from the faucet, rinse it out, and screw it back on. Check and see if your water pressure has increased. It's a good idea to close the pop-up in your sink while you do this, so no loose parts fall down the drain.
