Can't remove aerator from bathroom sink
Melissa

My bathroom sink has recently started having a weak flow. I am trying to clean the aerator to see if this helps since soaking the end of the faucet didn't work. It doesn't look like the end of the faucet is able to be unscrewed and when trying to unscrew it, it won't budge. I am curious if every faucet is able to be unscrewed? I will attach a photo of the faucet for reference.

Melissa,

They should be. To be certain, go to the manufacture website and download the tech specs for that faucent. There you will see how it is made and be able to know how it comes apart.

You need to use a rag or towel over the faucent so that it does not scratch it. A little late now, but you can order a new cover. You can also purchase a complete faucet, that is not a high quality product I am sorry to say.

Andrew,

Thank you for your response. I will look up the faucet online and if all else fails I'll just get a new one.
