Depending on the kind of water flow you expect, you could choose the respective device. The popular sizes available are 0.5, 1, 1.5, and 2.2 GPM that save water. Those varying from 2.5 to 5 gallons per minute are also available. Depending on your needs and the place you want to install them, the size will vary. Kitchen faucet installations will require a higher flow, as dish washing and filling water in a pot or jug requires that. 2.2 GPM aerators are recommended for the same.
Sometimes you may need to replace the O-ring to stop the leakage. As O-rings are available in a variety of sizes with minor variations, it is essential you buy the one which exactly matches yours. Pull the O-ring out and replace it with a new one. Coat it with plumber's grease before fixing it back.
Poor water supply pressure can also be the cause of this problem. In this case, you will notice the same problem in other fixtures as well. Also, same problems will be noticed by people residing in rest of the apartments/houses in your area. This can sometimes cause low water pressure in one outlet when other taps are turned on and proper pressure when only one outlet is on. This is because distribution of water further lowers the pressure. In this case, plumber will measure the incoming pressure and flow before your regulator, so as to make sure if that is the problem. Sometimes, elevation can also be the problem. The water storage tank which is supplying water to the sink must be at higher level so that the water flows by gravity. Most of the time, water pressure could get affected due to a damaged pipeline. Major plumbing problems, like blockage or leakage of pipeline, can be the cause of reduced pressure. If this is the case, the repairs can be expensive.
