FF-1800 HAS LOW HOT WATER PRESSURE AND DELAYED TIME TO GET HOT

Renovated kitchen. Kitchen installer Installed FF-1800,

Now it takes 5 minutes to get hot water and there is no pressure.

Thought it was a system pressure problem.

Building mechanics said there was pressure and immediate hot water up to the FF-1800.

Said that it was a valve problem with the faucet.

    Is this the only tap that takes long to get hot water after the renovation?? Or is the same symptom in the bath also?

Sometimes there is a lot of sediment released into the pipes (particularly hot water) when water lines are shut down and restarted as part of a remodel process.

Particularly with a pressure balanced faucet this can create all types of symptoms including those you describe...

Before you go to any expensive lengths, check any intake screens or strainers, both on the faucet and in the other components of the system. A lot of the time this will solve the problem...

Hi just moved in new home love it but the water pressure in kitchen is very low but the two baths i have the water pressure is fine can you help me please


One thing you could try is to remove the aerator at the end of the spout on the faucet, Turn water on and see if pressure is any better. If so the aerator is got something in it restricting the flow.
You also can remove the dime shaped flat in the aerator to increase water flow. It looks like a dime with a hole about 1/8" in center to restrict the flow to about 1.6 gpm. Remove it and reinstall aerator and check water flow

Most of the times when cold and hot side of faucet.It would be the first thin to check being you have good water pressure at other faucets. They catch debris and the flow slows down from the faucet's. Check out supply lines and faucet for a blockage if this doesn't take care of the problem.

Check out this web sire for a parts breakdown of parts in faucet. Check out installation and rough in sheet for information on faucet below.

Faucet installed 9/94 and still looks like new. But in past few days have begun seeing slow drip running down from one of the inner metal flexible hoses when faucet is on and for maybe 5-10 min after water...


Try tighten the hoses, if this don't work the seal in hose connectors may need replaced, very simple and cheap to replace. over time the hot water will wear down the seal it will go bad with pressure and water period. It's a good thing to change these all while you are there.

The hot water side has low water pressure. The


start by making sure the valve that supplies hot water to the sink and dish washer is fully open. If there is low hot water pressure in any of the other kitchen/bathrooms, then trace the line to see where the pressure drops. If it is only in the kitchen, it should be an old valve, (causes restriction)Good Luck.

Water runs slow


Three possible reasons for low pressure. 1. faucet cartridge has debris in valve body. 2. aerator has debris ,just unscrew and clean out. 3. Water valves under sink are not opened up. hope this helps

We are getting a metallic taste and smell


The metalic taste is coming from the the new faucet

I would call American Standard and ask them if they have any complaints for this particular model

I would run hot water through the faucet for 5 minute intervals

If it persists I would take it back and demand a refund or cal AS and demand a refund or replacement model

I am sure the local news would like to report something like this
