SOURCE: kitchen faucet , reduced water flow / pressure

Hi ssam1

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You want to know if you can fix a sudden low volume /pressure delivery problem on an American Standard model AS4205100 H7, one hole / single lever with pullout spray And is it fixable by owner?

Yes and maybe!

All plumbing systems are plauged with debrie buildup. Every time you turn on a faucet the water starts moving and will bring bits of debrie up from the water main or well. Most are small and will pass through to be caught by the screen in the aireator. Sometimes a relatively large piece comes along and dosen't make it through to the screen. It is stuck in the body of the valve.
Fixing takes a little mechanical ability.
First, turn off the water to the faucet in question. Then carefully disasemble paying close attention to the order of disasembly so you can reverse the order when putting back together. As each part is removed inspect it for that troublesome bit. I find that a little bit of wire or a paper clip is helpfull. Carefully reasemble. If the volume is still low then you missed finding that bit. Try again or call in a local pro.

Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: DELTA MODEL 470-WH LOW WATER FLOW AT KITCHEN FAUCET

This could be a couple of things.

  1. First remove the aerator from the wand and make sure you have plenty of flow with it off.
  2. If there is flow clean or replace the aerator.
  3. Remove the wand and look between the hose connection and the wand there should be a screen between them. Remove the screen and clean or replace.
  4. Make sure hose is kinking under the sink.
If you need a diagram of the faucet with part numbers here is the link:

Hope this helps!

Check the weight and see if it has screws in it to move in on the hose line the distance it lacks retracting.

Most of them can be adjusted to proper retracting mode. It may have a couple of screws in it.

Glacier bay faucet manual


Contact glacier bay to get a replacement control/handle assembly. Usually their customer service department is good at replacing the parts under warranty

You should have individual cold & hot water supply shut-offs in your basement for your tub/shower; if not, now's the time to install them.

If I could be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.

We just bought a house with a Glacier Bay single handle faucet in the shower. We only get scalding hot water from the faucet when we turn it on even if we move the faucet to cold. Pls help.


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly
You need to most likely change the inner valve cartridge. These Glacier Bay valves are sold at Home Depot and finding the correct replacement part will not be easy. Personal experience is to remove the old valve cartridge and walk into the store with part in hand. These valves use a ceramic insert / disc that locks into a groove of the cartridge. If the ceramic piece has drifted out of place they usually break off the inner locking tabs.

Should the store you visit not have the part you need... read these links:

http://glacierbayfaucet.org/buy-glacier-bay-faucet-parts-online

Also read the 23 March article on this link near the bottom of the page:
http://glacierbayfaucet.org/buy-glacier-bay-faucet-parts-online Heading name is
Infromation Technology

Let me just add something........ check with your realtor about your HOME WARRANTY. This repair may very well be covered by the home warranty.

My honest opinion.... the sooner you get rid of the Glacier Bay Shower control the happier you will be. These controls were at one time Marketed under the in store name Pegasus.

I did not intend to ruin your day but... I do want anyone reading this to be advised of the consequences of buying inexpensive shore controls.

A word of advice when purchasing a new control valve. Pay for the good name ONCE and make sure the repair parts are in the same store where you make the purchase. It will cost you less in the long run. Have the sales person show you the repair parts for the MODEL that you are thinking of buying. Delta, Moen, Price Pfister are 3 names that have been around a long time and have repair parts readily available in the marketplace. (end rant)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly
