    What brand faucet? Single or double handle? Does it do it on both hot and cold?

    The most common cause is a loose washer in a double handle valve. Some washerless models develop defects in the cartridge that can cause the same effect.

    I have a Moen, single handle faucet that does the same thing with hot and cold.

This could be something as simple as debris n your aerator

To see if this is the problem remove the silver collar(nut) at the end of your faucet spout by turning counterclockwis (plug the drain holes so nothing oges down the drain) If it is hard to turn put a soft cloth around it and grip with chanel lock pliars or vice grip be areful not to clamp too hard

once you remove the aerator you will see a plastic type of gear and a screen carefully remove thes and rinse with water (look for grains of sand or any obstructions)

before you re install the aerator turn the water on full blast and alternate from cold to hot then together

if this does not work you will need to se if the problem is in the mixing valve which requires removing the cartridge to remove the cartridge:

turn water off under sink(hot and cold)
look for an erasure side cap or cover located at the base of the fauet handle and remove with a sharp screwdriver

take a hex rench (you may need a fashlight) and remove the hex screw then take the handle off
take a channellok wrench and turn the cap nut (large washer type of nut) this will allow you to remove the cartridge
Remove the cartridge and inspet for debris
go under sink and trn water on slowly to flush any debris then turn water off
reinstall cartridge( it is usually keyed )
be sure to snug the nut down but not extremely tight

Reinstall handle and check faucet before you put the set screw in .

This should stop the pulsating if not replae the cartridge

GOOD LUCK!

Why does brine tank fill with water and overflows?


It sounds like there is a problem with either the valve in the head not sending water to the venturi jet when it is supposed to recycle or, the venturi or jet have an obstruction that is preventing it from creating the vacuum necessary to draw the brine back from the tank into the resin bed.
If there is water flowing out of the drain line during the recycle it is probably the venturi or jet need cleaning. If no water is flowing it is probably the valve assembly.

I need to clean the rain water tank from in side how i dont knew how i need some help to show me how in video


I take it you mean the radiator tank ?. I think the best thing to do is take it to a radiator repair shop where it can be reversed flushed cleaned and flow tested . Some times the core must be replaced.

Our bath taps which are a mixer with shower attachment stay really hot if you put the hot on first or really cold if you put the cold on first any idea how to adjust so we can have warm water when turning...


you make no sense. From the picture the water "mixer" is the center lever or is it a diverter valve for the shower and water nozzle below???
The knobs are for hot and cold water??

Diy plumbing


most likely that it is a old drain pipe as some plumbers used copper for that purpose. if it is a drain all u have to do is cap it. if it turns out to be a vent pipe u can install a end of the line vent cap. I cant remember what it is called but your supply store will know. just tell them u want to install a vent under the sink not through the roof.
