My kitchen facet has two controls (one for cold and one for hot) with one outlet. When I turn the hot water after a few seconds it with go from a fast stream down to a trickle all of a sudden, the cold water does the same but it takes a second or two to reach a trickle. The facet is about 2 months old and this just started approx. two weeks ago.

All other faucets are normal? i.e. is the behavior limited to only this particular faucet? Any chance some valves were partially closed two weeks ago? It's a restriction of some sort, and a partially closed valve is one of the easier ones to sort out, if that's it. –  Ecnerwal Jun 12 '14 at 21:16
