Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

First thing to do is shut the cold off under the sink, disconnect the supply line to the faucet, re-direct it into a bucket and turn the water back on. Do you have good flow there?

Tried that no same issue low flow
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Do you think the shut off valve could be the issue, perhaps clogged by calcium buildup
Plumber: Rick, Construction Supervisor replied 4 months ago

Ok, then next turn off the water main, pull the guts out of the shut off then turn the water back on. What happens?

Plumber: Rick, Construction Supervisor replied 4 months ago

The above will tell you if it's the shut off. The washer on these shut offs can break loose and restrict the flow
