Improving water flow for a clawfoot tub faucet is often as easy as cleaning the aerator. Aerators are installed on the end of faucet spouts to mix air into water to reduce splashing and create the perception of greater water pressure. When sediment from hard water gets trapped in the aerator, water flow is actually restricted by the aerator. Uninstall the aerator from the end of the spout and clean it just as described for a showerhead.

Routine maintenance of clawfoot tub faucets and clawfoot tub showers is an important step in reducing flow problems caused by hard water. Clean showerheads and faucet aerators regularly to improve performance and extend the life of your faucets and showers. If removing buildup from aerators and showerheads does not solve flow problems, consult with your trusted plumbing professional for help maintaining faucet valves.
