Unable to loosen and unscrew kitchen faucet screen...

I'm trying to install a water filter to the kitchen faucet and I am unable to loosen the tip of the faucet that contains the screen. It has to unscrew in order to fit the filter onto the end of the faucet. I'm guessing that there is a large amount of lime built up but I'm not sure. I've trying to soaking the tip of the faucet with CLR and attempted to unscrew it with several different pliers but I'm unable to even loosen it at all. What can I do?

P.S.> We have a water odor and taste problem from our well so I really need to install this filter.

If you have a lime problem, try soaking the tip in boiling water with vineger added to it. The acetic acid in the vineger disolves the lime. I did it just last week when I serviced my kitchen faucet. It may take quite a while for the lime to disolve, but in the end you will achieve your goal.

My Delta kitchen faucet, model470 or 471,single handle pullout signature faucet, is not spraying properly or allowing a good water flow.

The first thing to check is the filter screen inside the nozzle. There should be a ring that you can unscrew right where the water comes out. You will probably have to use a pair of pliers to loosen it. Use an old dishcloth or rag between the ring and pliers. This will protect your shiny faucet from being scratched! Once the ring is off, look inside it. There should be a metal screen inside with very fine mesh. It will come right out, but you may have to use the tip of a knife to pry up on one edge to get it started. Most likely, it is clogged with sediment. Clean it by holding the clogged side down under a running faucet. This is backflushing. Remove any remaining sediment with a fine brush and reinstall by reversing the directions above. Some people just never put them back in, preferring the stronger flow of water. Good luck!

The water flow on my kitchen faucet is very low-like a trickle

There are several of things that could cause that but the first thing I would do is unscrew the little screen thing at the tip of the faucet.
If you then get good flow, clean it and put it back on.

How to remove a single hole kitchen faucet

There are shut off valves inside the cabinet under the faucet. Shut off the valves and open the faucet to relieve the water pressure in the line. Loosen the lock nut that is behind the sink directly under the faucet and unscrew the water lines. Next step is to lift up the faucet from the cabinet. Reverse the process to install a new faucet.

Water Ridge Nannini series pull out kitchen faucet rotating at base instead of where it should.

I just fixed our Nannini from Costco. The screens were plugged with plastic filings coming from our water lines. On our faucet there is more than one screen.
The pull out faucet has the basic screen like 99% of the taps out, right on the end. It comes apart by first unscrewing it from the handle and gently (gently) nudging the screen out with a sharp object such as a pairing knife.
Then in the handle was where the problem lay with mine. There was a plastic knob which is recessed in the handle. Leave the hose connected and pull it out until it is stretched or have a helper, then press on that small knob, pull and the whole inside will pull out. There is another filter in there. I was able to take mine apart and clean it, yes it does pop apart but be careful. In assembling mine I just left out the second filter totally.
I guess in hindsite you wouldn't have to actually take the whole handle apart if one has a 90 degree tool to pull out the yellow plastic piece. I used an allen wrench and pulled. Cleaned it with a small needle.

Works better than new!

Can I remove the screen filter in the kitchen faucet and clean it? A112.18.1M 2.26pm 8.33L 7MIN. I don't want to try to unscrew the part and find out I shouldn't have. How should I unscrew it?

Yes, the aerator (where the water comes out) can be unscrewed and removed from the faucet. I remove these and clean them out on a regular basis. If the aerator won't unscrew by hand, place a washcloth over the aerator (to prevent scratching) and carefully turn it with a pair of pliers. (Screw direction to loosen: Looking down on faucet, with pliers to the right-hand side, pull them toward you.) Make sure the rubber washer is properly placed in the top of the aerator after you have cleaned it out and you go to screw it back on. You normally don't need pliers to put it back on, as these are meant to be screwed on hand-tight. There might be several little parts inside the aerator to take apart and clean out, so be very careful to put these parts back together the same way they came apart. I find a toothpick is often useful to clean these out, as well as a cup of water to rinse them in.

Since we fixed our dish washer, the water prssure in the kitchen faucet is very low. A friend told me to clean the filter. where is the filter, and what do I need to open in order to get to it?

filter screen is usually just under where the water comes out. Cover drain so any parts do not get lost down drain. Just unscrew it counter-clockwise to loosen it up. Remove screen and clean by flashing water in bathroom sink until screen holes are clear. then re-install and tighten in clock-wise direction. All done after you check that water comes out again.

I just installed an american standard faucet Molel# 2808.222 Called SPREAD LAVATORY FAUCETS . The water does not come out. can you please help me?

Silly question, but did you turn the shut offs back on after installing? If so, the aerator is probably clogged (the screen on the faucet). Unscrew it and clean it out. Good luck

Kitchen faucet low water volume

On the tip of the faucet there is a screen on it, remove the screen by unscrewing the it counter clockwise use a pair of pliers with a rag on it to keep from scratch the faucet end then if you have a large volume of water you will have to clean the screen out by flushing it out backwards and using a tooth pick to get out any particles yo can get out of the screen. there is the possibility that the faucet control handle is defective to but would do the screen test first.

Sudden drop in pressure in kitchen faucet

If it only the kitchen faucet, then the screen inside is clogged. Remove the filter by unscrewing the part where the water exits the faucet. Pay attention to how the pieces come out so as to replace in same order. there will be small debris that has to be removed then just replace in same order it came out.
