    Do you have hard water?

    Take the hose off of the handle and see if any sediment comes out.
    Press the spray button while the spray head is off and blow through the outlet side so that air is coming out of were the hose screws in.

Disassemble the sprayer and remove the dirt and dibri gathered inside.

Reassemble.

Has the water been turned off to that faucet, or the entire home recently? If yes, it probably loosened sediment in the pipes and its clogging the sprayer.

Kohler Fairfax kitchen faucet has low flow pressure. Any suggestions? It's the faucet, not the water getting to the faucet that has the low pressure.


First thing to check is if it has a strainer on the spout that has debris. The second thing is if you have a sprayer attachment the diverter valve is a chronic problem with kitchen faucets.

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.

Low stream


these faucets have a single handel, and have a cartage that can be taken out and cleaned. Low water pressure is caused by minerals in the water to build up in the cartage and slow down water flow.
