Aerators can be found on some bathtub, and almost all sink faucets. Some people will experience more clogged aerators than others. For example, having a shallow well, or having galvanized water supply pipes could give you an issue. If you have recently done plumbing work, you might have dislodged something in the pipes. Even copper or pex pipes might occasionally bring something down the line. Even with a clean supply of water, mineral deposits can also clog the aerator. Tools needed: - Channel Lock Pliers (or strong hands) - Tape (To protect the finish on the aerator) - Vinegar (optional) - A pearing knife, or some sort of "pick" for getting chunks out
