low water pressure after new hot water heater installation

I had a new hot water heater installed yesterday. The new tank is a 69 gallon tank and the old one was only 40 gallons.

Since the installation I have one faucet in the bathroom that does not get adequate water pressure. The toliet and tub faucet work fine, as do the other 3 faucets and toliet in the house.

The water from the main is on completely. The water valves running to the sink are completely opened. It doesn't matter whether I turn on the hot, cold, or both together the pressure does not change.

Any advice?

indi, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
Have you removed the aerator on the end of the sink faucet spout. It just screws on. Turn it clockwise as you are looking down on it. It may need a pair of pliers but most are hand tight. The screens may be plugged. Be careful to put the screens and any washers back in the same way they came out. Turn on the water while the aerator is off and see if that is indeed the problem. Good luck and reply back with any further questions.
