    Where does the "C" clip go in relation to the "O" ring? My sprayer was leaking. When I removed the sprayer handle the "C" clip was floating around in the handle and fell out.

    I have a similar problem. Mine is "FluidMaster No Burst" faucet with a single stem with a hose and nozzle that pulls out from it. I pulled it out to use this evening and the nozzle came off in my hand, water exploded all over the place, including me, and the hose snapped back into the stem. After turning off the water I was able to pull the hose back up. There seems to be a pressure fit into a little thingy on the nozzle head. The nozzle has a notch and internal screw threading. This seems to match up with a screw threaded cup inside the stem that stopped the hose from retracting any further. Anyhow, the threads on these two parts are too far apart to reach each other and lining up the nozzle notch with the stem notch doesn't help. Hopefully this is an understandable description. Any help will be much appreciated - Drenched in Vancouver.

Solved my own problem with a little ingenuity. On closer look it became apparent that the threaded retaining ring at the end of the hose must have snapped quite securely back into the stem. So after a late night trip to the local hardware emporium to find a tool capable of exerting enough pressure from the inside of this part to tug it out, I bought a pair of needle nosed pliers. Eureka! Problem solved. The hose retaining ring pulled up immediately. It was easy to screw nozzle head and hose back together. And Bob should be everybody's uncle! (At the store I noticed that most brands of these single faucet pull up taps have the same stem to nozzle configuration. I think buyers should consider that this is the most used aspect of these types of taps and constant pulling out the hose to direct the spray, expecially if you also have double sinks; daily cleaning etc. might quite understandably uncrew the nozzle head from the hose over time ; it appears to be quite a short thread on this model 333 series.)

Hi foxyroxy1494,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: How do you reconnect the handle to the hose? It seems like there is a connector piece missing. If you just reconnnect it, its very difficult.

Is this the type of faucet with the sprayer handle as part of the faucet spout? If so, it just screws on.
Is this the type of faucet with the sprayer handle next to the faucet? If so, It's important that you didn't loose the tiny C clip. When you took it apart you had to unscrew the handle from the base and remove the C clip from the hose to remove the base. If you have all the parts just reverse the process. And yes it can be more dificult than it looks.

Feel free contact me again!

I am reinstalling a Moen 7345 riser faucet in my laundry room. This faucet was removed from a bar sink two years ago by the contractor who replaced my kitchen counters and changed my two kitchen sink...

I had a similar problem and, like you, found that there was nothing for the washer to seat against. Apparently, there was a metal bushing installed when manufactured, that was entirely eaten away by electrolytic corrosion - mine took nearly twenty years. I machined a new non-metallic bushing, installed it, and the problem was solved.

I also sent Moen's president a letter explaining the problem and how to fix it but heard nothing back from them. At the time, no parts were offered that could fix the problem.

Loss of pressure in kitchen faucet - Price Pfister

Your problem is a simple one.

  1. Turn off water to faucet.
  2. Place a towel(s) in the base of the sink(s) to prevent any parts from going down drain.
  3. Remove the handle to the faucet. (single handle only)
  4. If not a single handle then remove spout from faucet.
  5. If a single handle remove cap carefully and any loose parts.
  6. Gently turn spout side to side while lifting to remove.
  7. You will see a hole with a very small valve where the water comes out to the spout on the base of the faucet.
  1. Remove this valve (which is a backflow preventer) and replace.
  2. Reassemble and test.
Problem solved.

Low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.
