Loss of pressure in kitchen faucet - Price Pfister

Main water line seems to have adequate pressure on nearby sinks and with the kitchen sink spray hose. Faucet has a hot and cold tap and both have low pressure. Filter screen on faucet is clean and clear. Pressure seems to increase when we use the spray hose. Pressure off main spout may be slightly increased but drops gradually after spray hose is turned off.

    I have the same problem with my Price Pfister Marielle Kitchen Faucet. Did this work?

  • pazzaglini Jan 28, 2009

    I had the same problem with my Price Pfister Marielle faucet and I replace the diverter (pn 951-039) and that did the trick. The faucet is working like new! Thank you.

    I have the same problem with the pfister marielle, bunches have the same problem, becareful with the recommeded solutions.

    1. 951-039 is the plastic diverter and will not work if you have a brass diverter. part# (brass) 951-029 (call price pfister to make sure.)
    2. this could also be the cartridge, 974-035.

    the aggravating thing is that you can find similar parts local, but there are no translation from suppliers part number to the manufacturer and nothing on the packaging otherwise specifying. lame. in short, call price pfister and moan about this expensive good for nothing faucet that has parts have to purchase through them.

    ridiculous. never buying price pfister again.

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.

I need a replacement handle, including all the parts and hoses, on my Price Pfister Marielle kitchen faucet model # T26-4NEE

Most new kitchen faucets feature single-handle control levers and washerless designs that rarely require maintenance. Additional features include brushed metallic finishes, detachable spray nozzles, or even push-button controls.Connect the faucet to hot and cold water lines with easy-to-install flexible supply tubes made-from vinyl or braided steel. If your faucet has a separate sprayer, install the sprayer first. Pull the sprayer hose through the sink opening and attach to the faucet body before installing the faucet.

Where local codes allow, use plastic tubes for drain hookups. A wide selection of extensions and angle fittings lets you easily plumb any sink configuration. Manufacturers offer kits that contain all the fittings needed for attaching a food disposer or dishwasher to the sink drain system.

Faucets won't turn off

Open your cubbards under the sink and look for (2) valves/angle stops. then turn them to the right until the water stops running.
If this doesn't work you'll have to find any isolation valves down line or kill the house supply at the No.1 valve At your water meter.

''poor pressure hot water only on new 531 series''

If you remove the supply line from the faucet and open the valve into a bucket, do you have adequate pressure? If you do, you will need to remove the hot water stem to see if something washed up into the faucet when you first turned the water on.
