        Pressure builds up and is released when I remove the hose. It’s plugged, but how, where?

        ive run some wire down, but can’t get past the first 90-degree elbow.

          After 16 years I think we should trade sinks. Only fair.

            thats funny. This is the direction I’m leaning.
            I’d rather run a drill than patch drywall.

              This sounds like an HGTV reality show. All you need is Cooter and JBoss as Cooter’s incompetent assistant for comic relief.

              “The CD and Seedy Show with CC Cooter”

              The show would suck ass, but my Wife would watch it anyway. She has terrible taste. She married me.

                If you think it's a mineral plug, would back filling with some vinegar be an option? I'd think overnight it'd eat through any calcium build up. Maybe follow up with a wire pipe cleaner? Just an odd thought

                What seems odd is going in a day from all good to nothing. Usually a calcium or other mineral build up will gradually change the pressure.
                Normally I’d be hesitant to join the crowd shouting out bad advice and be one more voice irritating you, but since you-know-who threw this out to the peanut gallery, I feel no remorse whatsoever.

                  The night before I washed the dog in the sink. It worked fine. Seems like it would have trickled. When I turned it on the next morning there was absolutely nothing. Not even a drip.

                  Speaking of advice, did you ever get the lights in your pool enclosure taped up to the ceiling?

                  @Seedy - abandon and cap the cold water that is stopped up- use a double angle stop (common on dishwasher) on the cold water that is working and run a new supply to the faucet thru the cabinet. Just keep in mind if its a mineral deposit, it may form in more lines, although those usually occur in the hot water distribution from electrolysis. <---like gren suggested

                    @Seedy I just thought about this, you guys just finished a remodel, chances are if you cut into the water line for any reason you may have gotten a small piece of trash or some solder into the line that found it's way to a tight spot. Still at some point need to find the stoppage. Get out the punch saw.

                      Yep. Next sink in series I opened the cold water. No sputter, no nothing.

                      Capped plugged line
                      Drilled a few holes
                      Ran a new line from my sink (cold side) to her sink.
                      Finished in an hour, as opposed to taking a week to do it the “right way” (aka cut drywall, find the blockage, cut and sweat pipes/elbows, patch drywall, paint)
