How do I remove the aerator from my faucet?

Wrap the jaws of a pair of pliers with tape to keep them from scratching the aerator. Unscrew the aerator body from the faucet and remove all the internal components. Clean and reassemble. If you get weak water flow when you turn on the faucet, don't assume your water pressure has suddenly gone bad.

What is the aerator used for?

Aerators are various devices used for aeration, or mixing air with another substance, such as soil or water. These devices are used to add oxygen to the water. Aerator may also refer to: Floating surface aerators, used in aerated lagoons.
