I had to remove my bathroom sink, and both faucets are connected to their supply by bendable pipe/hose, that has a valve between the pipe, and the hose.

When I reinstalled the sink, and opened the valves, and then ran the water, it was really slow, and then it sped up a little bit, but it's not even near to the level it was before.

The only thing that I can figure is that since the copper that's before the valve is sitting parallel with the floor, that I may have gotten an air bubble in both copper pipes.

If anyone can give me some tips, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Brando.

Check the flexible lines to make sure they aren't kinked. Also check the washers on the ends of each fitting to make sure they are seated properly. Lastly, check the lines to make sure there are no obstructions in them.

Unscrew the faucet aerator CCwise and clean it out. Dirt and sediment get clogged in the aerator when valves are opened and closed.
