How To Clean Your Aerator


How to Clean Your Aerator

If you have been experiencing low water pressure from your faucet, you may want to spend some time looking into why that’s happening. Marlin Services will be giving you a few ways to properly check your faucet. This will help you find the cause of your low water pressure problems. Start by checking the aerator of your faucet to see if it leaks when the water is on. If so, this may be caused by lime buildup and sediment blocking and will need to be cleaned in order to get your water pressure back to normal.

Faucet Aerator

First: Unscrew the aerator from the faucet. If it has to much build up to remove with your hands, get a pair of pliers to help loosen it. {To make sure you don’t scratch or damage your sink, wrap the jaws of the pliers with a cloth – & then remove}

Second: Take the spray head apart so you can begin your cleaning process.

Third: Soak the aerator in vinegar to help loosen the sediment buildup. Then get a small brush to remove any additional blockage in the spray head.

Forth: You can now reassemble your aerator by screwing it back into place.
