Why is there no water coming from one faucet in the bathroom?
If there are supply valves feeding the supply lines connecting your faucet, they may be closed, or simply your faucet components/inserts and or supply lines may be restricted.
ANS 2 - most common cause for this is a plugged aerator or stop valve.

Your most likely cause and the easiest and cheapest to repair is probably related to a bad washer or O ring on the washer cartridge stem. This is how I fixed the problem in my… kitchen sink about 20 minutes ago. Shut off the water supply to the sink if it is a single line or to the affected faucet if it is a a two line system. Next, remove the noisy faucet and cartridge assembly. Unscrew the cartridge completely from the hold down nut and inspect the washer on the bottom of the stem as well as the o ring about midway up. replace both of these with the appropriate size and set the cartridge aside for a moment. Next, take some fine steel wool (I recommend using an SOS pad) and carefully clean the threads and the seat on the hold down nut. Do the same to the threads on the stem and pay particular attention to the area at the bottom of the stem as that is where a lot of residue and calcium buildup can occur. Now put the cartridge assembly back together and replace the assembly in the sink. Voila...problem solved and it didn't cost an arm and a leg to have a plumber come to your house.
Knocking or hammering on your water pipes is caused by the air chambers within the pipes, which are designed to cussion the pipes against the pressure of the water that …flows through them, being depleted to some degree. This is easily fixed, provided that you go about it in the right way--you do not need to call a plumber. First of all, and I can't stress how important this is, you MUST turn off the main water valve in your house to prevent any further water from entering the pipes--do this first. Next, turn on every faucet (tap) and flush all of the toilets until no more water will come out. When you are sure that everything has been drained dry, turn OFF all of the faucets (taps). Now turn the main water valve back on slowly. What this does it to allow the air chambers to be replenished with the correct amount of air to prevent the shock from the water flowing under pressure.
Answer broken line under house,shut off valve behind toilet is turned off, blockage at the shut off valve,
Aerators are helpful to keep water from splashing, they also infuse air into running water. If you see that the water is cloudy, try this... Take a clear glass and run cold wa…ter from the tap, for a second, then place the glass under the faucet, fill the glass and set in on the counter. If the water is being effected by the aerator the cloudiness will dissipate in a few seconds. The cloudiness is tiny bubbles suspended in the water.
There is a pipe that connects to it that same pipe goes under ground then flows to the nearest source of water. Example: Ocean, Pond, Lake. The hot water tank works as a sypho…n to pump the water out. Of course there are filters in the lines so you wouldn't get nasty water some times you have to change your pipes to change the filter its very easy though and any plumber can do it. You know they need changed when dirt, sand, small or small fish start to flow through the pipes. You will need to change your pipes if there is a strange taste coming from the faucet.
The water you get from your faucet can come from two places - from the water in lakes or rivers (surface water), or from water that comes from wells (groundwater). Many people… in this area who live in large cities or towns get their water for drinking from lakes and rivers. But, most people in the United States get their drinking water from groundwater. from: http://www.epa.gov/region7/kids/drnk_b.htm
= written by Faucetman886 = Maybe it's the cold weather or the fact that so many people are out of work and have time on their hands to listen for it but it …seems this weeks discussion forums are full of questions about plumbing noises, most specifically water hammer. Water hammer is that thunking, clunking, clanging noise you get when you turn a faucet off or the washing machine switches cycles. Plumbing can make many weird noises which can have many causes and; sometimes, they're not easy to isolate and fix. The following are some of the common issues. 1. Water hammer. This noise doesn't happen with flowing water, so if it occurs while your water is running, it isn't water hammer. As I mentioned at the beginning of this article water hammer happens when you turn OFF a water suddenly. Shutting off the water suddenly sends a pressure or shock wave down the water line through the water shocking the pipes and creating the hammer noise. These shock waves travel faster than the speed of sound and can exert very instant pressure. Over an extended time, water hammer can damage pipes, valves and eventually weaken pipe joints. This may in itself cause additional problems as in #6. Most newer homes have devices called hammer arresters that are air filled chambers connected to the plumbing that let the pressure wave dissipate harmlessly into a cushion of air. These arrestors can become filled with water and stopworking. If the banging in your home has been happening forever you may not have one. To correct this you must drain your house of all the water in the pipes.. Turn off your water to the house at the main shut off valve or at the meter. Find the lowest faucet in your house, often this is an outdoor hose faucet, and open it. Then open the faucets that is in the highest place in the house. Let the low faucet drain for 5 minutes or until it stops dripping, whichever takes longer. Close all the faucets and turn the main back on. When you turn the water back on the pipes will have air in them and will sputter until this air is dissipated don't panic. 2. Faulty toilet fill valve (ballcock) will cause resonance sounds like a fog horn or a moan. It's easy to check. Close the supply valves to all the toilets. If the noise disappears, open them one-by-one till the noise starts again. Replace the ballcock in that toilet. If there are no shut-offs handy, sometimes you can locate the faulty ballcock by lifting up on the float ball while someone turns on the faucet that is causing the noise. 3. Bad faucet washer. If your nosie only happens when using a certain faucet the faucet washer may be loose or damaged. This can cause it to flutter in the water stream causing various sounds To repair this tighten the screw to the washer in the faucet stem. If this doesn't work, then it's time for a new stem assembly. If your dishwasher or washing machine is causing the noise you may have a worn out solenoid fill valve. 4. High water pressure can cause a variety of problems including these noises. It can also damage toilet valves and other devices connected to the plumbing. I saw an issue on a forum last week where water pressure was cited as the cause for a hand held shower hose coming loose. If you're on a water system, ask your neighbors if they are having similar problems or simply call your water supplier and ask that they come out and check your pressure settings. If you have a well you should have a water pressure meter. If the pressure is above 60psi you may want to adjust your pressure reducer 5. Pipes rubbing or bumping inside the walls because they aren't strapped down well or because the stud pass through holes are too small or off center. If this is the case they've probably made the sounds since the house was built.. If this is the problem you will have to call a plumber to make the repair. This can be far too complicated for the average homeowner/do-it-yourselfer to handle. 6. Pressure regulator. If you have a pressure regulator on your main water line it may be faulty. If your pounding sound happens while the water's running, it happens at more than one faucet, turning on other faucets changes the cadence, the pressure changes with the pounding, While the noise is happening, check to see if it is coming from the regulator. If so, the regulator may need to be replaced. I hope this information has helped you track down your plumbing noises and given you enough info to effect a repair yourself, or better yet I hope you get a new job which takes your mind off the issue and gives you the money to pay someone to come and fix it.
The shut off valve under the sink, the faucet itself, or most likely, the screen in the end of the spout is plugged. If neither hot or cold is coming out, it is kind of unlike…ly both shut off valves and both sides of the faucet would go bad at the same time. The screen being clogged would stop any water from coming out. The screen just unscrews out of the spout.

Warm water comes though a facet because you have a boiler or anything else to heat up the water.
