Put a new faucet in. Works fine unless I turn it on full blast then loses almost all pressure. Something I did or bad faucet?

"If the pressure is high, we concerned about wasting both water and money."
Pressure to high cause erosion of ferrous and non ferrous metal piping, hydraulic shock (water hammer)

By each fixture there should be a valve normally a globe pattern type .. A "GLOBE" valve is used to THROTTLE water to reduce the volume and FPS (velocity) all you have to do is turn the valve towards the off position as you watch the water coming out of the spout of the faucet

I was very skeptical that this was my problem, i just couldn't believe it was so simple. I went ahead and tried it and low and behold the filter was completely blocked with tiny lime and calcium "pebble" deposits! I was so happy not to have to call the plumber! I opened a business and I did have to call a plumber earlier as the mop sink trickled. There was a similar deposit about 3 inches long that was blocking all but a pin size flow. Thank You for the advice!
