Im having a weak water flow from my kitchen faucet. Its not extremely weak but its about half of the power of the normal flow rate. I already tried unscrewing the filter piece thats attached to the faucet and it didn't change anything when i clean it. Can anyone help me out? Thanks

Question

Does the drop in pressure /volume happen both hot and cold ?

yes the water pressure in both hot and cold is weak, both are equally the same weakness.

If it is just your kitchen faucet BOTH hot and cold CLEAN the aerator

I mean remove the aerator run the water and if this still doesn't help then shut the water supple disassemble the faucet and and check for mineral deposits blocking the flow.

sometimes you have to have someone place a cup over the disassembled faucet turn on the water for a split second to make sure the lines are clear.

DO IT CAREFULLY as hot water can burn and cold water spritzing can cause a mess

Having ferrous metal piping like Galvanized would not block up on both lines at the exact same time.

It seems like a localized condition
