kitchen faucet water pressure

Set out for our journeys, and the kitchen faucet is only putting out a trickle. It never has been as good as the rest of the faucets.
I have a pressure reducer on the hose bib.
I remember someone else having this trouble, but senility has set in. Tks.
Hope everyone has a safe summer traveling.

Try removing the aerator screen and see if there is something blocking the flow. Many have has pieces of plastic clogging the screen.

Their are check valves in the line,I removed them and the flow is good now. They are to small and grit plugs them up.

Ours keeps getting wood shavings in the screen. Probably from assembly line. After cleaning, all is well for a while.

I removed the screen, and cleaned no pressure.
Where is the check valves?
I will tear into it more at our next stop in Springs.

The flexible woven hose/pipe connection under the sink can get kinked. Mine is usually slow, but I was working on the faucet as it had gotten loose. I noticed the short hose was twisted so straightened it as best I could and the water flow was faster than it has been in 8 years.

Our completely shut off until we removed the constrictors, there is 3. We only found 2 so if we turn on the kit faucet quick it still shuts down. All u have to do is turn on the bathroom sink. Water flow again. Someday I will find the other constrictor.

Soaked the screen in vinegar, also took nozzle off soaked it. Better but not great. Will wait till we get home before i tear into the anti siphon valves.
Thanks for the input.
