Need to remove a culligan faucet

I need to remove the faucet to change out my sink.  I have it out, but the blue tube is still attached and I can't see how to disconnect it since there is no nut.  Does it just pull out?

Culligan reverse osmosis filter system has stopped providing water from the sink mounted faucet attached to the system.

Since unfiltered water went through it for a couple days, I would guess you have mineral build up. If this is the case, be careful about trying to use it. There are certain products you can buy to unclog the pipes. Most will have you pour them down through the pipes connected to the polishing filter. If you can take the pipes apart, I suggest going pipe by pipe to see where the build up is.

Low pressure

Depending on your faucet, I bet the problem is some debris that came loose and is blocking the flow at the valve that the faucet handle turns. 5 minute fix.

Turn off the water supply under the sink
Get a Phillips screwdriver and a flathead one
Get a pair of expanding pliers

Usually, the faucet handle comes off straight up when you remove the Phillips screw on top. If you cant see a screw, it may be hidden by a cosmetic cap (this is what the flathead is used for-to pop the cover off)

When you remove the handle, there will be a section that needs to be removed using the pliers turning counter clockwise. Once that comes up, the valve should lift straight out.

I bet you will se a debris obstruction there....easy fix to clean it.

Reassemble in reverse.

I hope this works.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  1. Remove the shower head from the pipe.

  2. Find the O-ring or a similar seal inside. Replace it and screw the shower head back into place.
  3. Turn off the water supply and open the faucet handle to relieve water pressure.
  4. Carefully loosen the coupling nuts at the shutoff valves and at the base of the faucet.
  5. Carefully remove the supply tubes.
  6. Remove the locknuts that hold the faucet to the sink and lift the faucet out.
  7. Clean the area where the old faucet sat.
  8. As needed, install the new spray hose and supply tubes, if any, through their holes in the sink.
  9. Set the rubber gasket that came with the faucet on the sink where it will be mounted. If no gasket is supplied, apply plumber's putty.
  10. Set the faucet into position and center it.
  11. From under the sink, attach the faucet locknuts to hold it to the sink.
  12. Reinstall the supply lines, then turn them on and test the faucet. Turn it on carefully because the line and faucet have air in them.

I changed all filters as per manual and cant get any water on the faucet. Pressure at storage tank is good at 7psi. But i got water after removing the RO filter. Any idea what would be the root cause?...

Check the capillary tube to make sure it is not plugged. This will restrict the flow from membrane. Also make sure the seal for membrane is not damaged. It takes several hours to refill the RO tank if it is empty.

I just got a new sink and need to remove the culligan air gap faucet from the old one. Is there a trick to remove the housing to get to the screws?

If it is the old style facet as shown with this post than you have to disassemble it from below the sink.
If it is the R2 D2 faucet (Plastic Chrome) this is how to do it. Pull the stem out, it just sits in there and is held by the o-rings. On top of the housing are two small screws, take them out, pull the cover off and you will see two screws on either side of the base plate. These are both toggle screws that hold the faucet onto the sink. Unscrew these and the whole assembly comes out.

2 Answers how to remove a culligan drinking water faucet

It depends on the style of faucet and how old it is. Their pre 1990 faucets have to be taken apart under the sink. Newer style (plastic, chrome r2d2 faucet) can be taken apart from above. If it is a custom faucet it will have to be taken apart from below sink.

The smart tap on my culligan RO filter system drips continuously. How do I fix it?

The drain line between the faucet and the sink drain pipe is probably clogged.

  1. First turn off the water to the RO system and close the valve from the storage tank.
  2. The hardest part is figuring out how to detach the tubes and couplings The link below shows how to do this. You do not need tools.
  4. Remove the connector from the sink drain. Then remove the connector from the tube,
  5. I used a small skewer to clean out the gunk from the connector and then rinsed it out.
  6. I used a long skewer to loosen the gunk in the tube, then turned on the water to the system to force the gunk out.
  7. Then I just put it back together and it worked.

How do you change the filters in a Culligan RO system

For a 4-Stage system:
1. Open the housing caps of the components that house both the sediment and carbon filters (you may need a residential spanner wrench). Put each filter into its proper housing and tighten housing caps MANUALLY. Do not use wrench.
2. Repeat process with membrane housing and membrane (if membrane needs replacing).
3. Remove inline polishing filter by disconnecting tubing at both ends. Replace with new inline filter and reconnect tubing.

My Culligan RO faucet has an ''air gap'' leak. How do I clear the clogged debris causing the water to constantly run? Culligan told me that the Faucet/Air gap is clogged. Need to dislodge the debris.

Normally when it leaks out the weep hole the drain line is plugged under the sink....turn off the ro to where it's not making water, disconnect the drain hose and flush it out....make sure the adapter that's connected to the drain pipe is still lined up with the hole if it was moved the water can't get to the drain.
