SOURCE: I have a Hamat faucet that has low water pressure all of a sudden

I have the exact same faucet from Hamat and I just took it apart ...every last bit....the tabs on each part are notched so when you put it all back again...its pretty easy....I had every single part layed across the table.

(Below is the red neck way....without the special tool to take off the top key part which requires a special T tool)
now for the desembly.... under the handle is the red/blue button...unscrew carefully not to ruin the color...if it does not come out ...pry it out...mine was not so friendly....then take a small hex and stick it in the hole and unscrew a small screw....whalllaaa ...the top is off....now for the only hard part of this whole project....without their special tool your going to have to take a vice grip layed over a cotton cloth and clamp it on the top back side perpedicular....on the actual crome/stainless steel....this part will not be seen from the front.... I did scratch mine a bit ...but dont see it after the fix...remember it under the handle on the backside....then take another vice grip and cloth to the part you stick in the counter....(not the threads of course...just above) then with hulk like procedures your going to give it all.....hold with the left the base vice grip....and with the top ...crank it counter clockwise....again with the vice grip perpendicular ...on the back edge...I had to use a small screwdriver or rod to stick it across the vice grip for leverage.....erggggg....got it.
after that take note of how the part fall out.....eventuallly you might need to take out the cylinder.....remove the hose (did it at begininng) then wiggle....and pull out the cylinder...dont unscrew....back and forth in 10 degree turns as you pull out.....this is not screwed in.....Only One big screw already taken care off... the hoses connected in the interior are tough and for some wierd reason need a 10mm wrench.
Ok good luck....and by the way MINE DID NOT HAVE HOT WIRE...a part of rubber washer came loose from my plumbing under the counter and found its way to block hot water...inside the very core of the faucet....oh well ALLL DONE.... hot water for dishes...for my wife...just kidding.

SOURCE: My kitchen faucet has low

If you have pressure to the shut off valves then most likely your shut off valves are not fully opening, I would recommend you replace both valves, they build up water deposits in them a lot of the times. The other possibility is the faucet itself has a water saver filter built into it. A lot of the new faucets have water savers built into them now.

take the unit apart, starting with the handles and check for small rocks or derbis blocking flow.

Hi,

Hamat faucets aren't the kind we come across very often. They are imported from Israel and no instructions are to be had.
They are not too different from other faucets.

I have not had the opportunity to install one of these faucets, so am going by what is the norm and the exploded view. I hope I can help.

From the view, it looks like the check valve is inside the faucet hose. If you have not disassembled that far, don't be afraid to go ahead and take it apart. There isn't much you can do wrong (except maybe to not turn the water off....). Just disconnect your supply hose and go from there. You shouldn't have a problem.

If you have any trouble or questions, please reply back.

Hope this helps. Thanks,

Handie Andie

How does one eliminate an annoying, loud noise that comes from the faucet shown below. We replaced the cylinder to no avail.


A disturbed water flow causes such sounds. Since the sound propagates through the entire plumbing? The problem may be hard to pinpoint but is generally located at a valve or an endpoint.
Check that all valves are opened completely
Try removing one of the faucets and letting the water flow freely
If you can not repair - descaling or replacement.

American Standard Kitchen Faucet Low water flow


I had the same issue with an American Standard faucet that I installed new 6 months ago. The diverter can be the issue if you have a sprayer attachment. Try unscrewing the sprayer head from the hose it's attached to. Now run the water full pressure with the hose pointed into the sink, obviously :~). After running the water for about 1 minute, connect the sprayer head back onto the hose, make certain the flat rubber washer and ring gaskets are seated in their grooves properly, and tighten until you have no water leaking from the sprayer head/hose connection. Now try the water through the faucet. If the problem was a temporary diverter issue, your pressure should be fine now. Good luck

I installed Series 26 Avalon faucet. The water flow rate is very slow. All fittings to the faucet are new. Could the problem be a faulty valve ?


Remove and clean the Price Pfister aerator. Turn the water on after you remove the aerator and check the flow-rate. Many new Lavatory and kitchen faucets are now equipped with Eco friendly water saver aerators. if the flow is normal without the aerator, the faucet is OK. if you want more water flow from your lavatory faucet, you will need to buy one of the old style high flow aerators from your hardware store. If you remove the aerator and still get low pressure from both hot and cold faucets, you may need to replace the faucet. Call the Price Pfister warranty phone number that came with your faucet.

Blanco 2.2 GPM Faucet/Side Spray#157-013ST Via Google NO PRESSUR


Try unscrewing the aerator and cleaning the screen that you'll find there. If that doesn't work then you should check the pressure under the sink by removing the cold water hose from the cutoff valve (turn it off 1st!). If the pressure there is good then try removing and cleaning the cartridge by soaking it overnight in white vinegar or consider replacing the whole faucet if it's old. You can also call Blanco and see what they'll do for you as it has a "Limited Lifetime Warranty." If the pressure at the cutoff is low it's time to call a plumber!

Try removing the aerator and handspray to clean out any debris that may have accumulated. After 8 years there could be quite a buildup if it hasn't been regularly cleaned.

Low water flow from kitchen faucet


Their is likely rust build up behind the valve connections to the hot and possibly cold water supply lines. Turn the water off to the house relieve the pressure and remove both valves. Once removed use a screwdriver to break up the rust. With a small bucket under both lines turn the water main back on slightly to clear rust. Replace both valves with new ones.
