I have just installed a new hot water heater in my home and after installation I've gotten a loss of water pressure both hot and cold to my kitchen sink and bathroom sink, all others seem to be fine. I did not reduce any lines or change any lines in any way. I have checked all the faucet dispercers and screens and cleaned them. I don't know what to check. Who ever can help me I would greatly appriciate it.

Did You solder the joints yourself? Most major manufactures' tell you to solder the male or female adapter on 1st, then make your stub on the Water heater. My guess is you applied too much heat and melted the dip tube(s) on the hot and cold side, causing the plastic dip tubes to melt restricting the flow.
