The only fixture in the bathroom now with low pressure is the cold water from the sink faucet. Cold water runs fine in the shower and everywhere else, just this one faucet. Also, hot water runs fine everywhere. It's just the cold water flow from the sink.
How do you 'flush' the hotwater heater? I'm be real interested in learning more about this.
Turn off the water to the faucet and open it up and check the seats or inlet ports of the cartridge for trash and dirt. Now place a pan over the open valve body to prevent splash and turn on the cold water to flush out the cold water supply line. Reassemble and test.
Let me show you how to flush your heater. Attach a hose to the boiler drain at the bottom of the tank. With the pressure on, open the boiler drain and let it run until the water runs clear. You will see a spurt of red,(rust) and some white grains,(lime or calcium carbonate) or in your case dirt. The whole thing shouldn't take more then a few minutes. Don't forget to flush it out every month. Your heater will thank you for it. Good luck, Tom
