Question

I had a leak in my upstairs bathroom (shut-off valve). So I shut off water main, loosened the bolts on valve, lightly oiled them, retightened them, turned on water main. All water pressure has been restored through out the house except, now the faucet (same bathrrom I just fixed valve) is trickling water - Low pressure - both hot and cold. I'm puzzled and hope someone can help "Josie the plumber". I do alot of the plumbing in this old house of mine. Thanks for your help! KEG

Remove and clean out the aerator see if that does the trick.

Have you disconnected the supplies, to see if you have pressure with them not connected to the faucet yet?

Ok, now I'm lost. what is meant by disconnecting the "supplies"? The faucet was running fine before I tightened the shut-off valve on toilet, and that is the only shut off valve in the bathroom. the sink doesn't have one.

Ok so you tightened the shutoff to the toilat and now you don't have no pressure to your faucet.

How is the sink connected to your water source?

We are talking about bathsink faucet right?

Is the faucet hard piped in?

How much trouble will it be for you to install shutoffs under the sink?

It will be much easier to solve to problem if you had a way to work at or on the bathsink faucet, without having to shut the entire system down.

Need more info, cause now I'm lost.

the bathroom sink is hard piped in ther is no shut off valve under the sink. I'm sorry that I got ya' lost. I guess I'll just have to let it trickle for awhile...and probably have to call the plumber. I tired. You were so very helpful and patient with me. I'm really puzzled 'bout this one. Again, many thanks, keg

When you have the plumber come in have him install shutoffs under the sink.
