Question about Danze Fairmont Double Handle Roman Tub Faucet with Valve and Lever Handles
I have a problem with a danz nsf 61/9. A bunch of small gold colored beads started coming out in my fixtures throughout the house. I determined after shutting off the water softner that it was the root of that problem.
However now my kitchen tap will not pass water very quickly. I removed the screens to clean them and even with them removed the water is extremely slow.
I think I need to change the cartridge but I can't figure out how to remove it.
There is a set screw behind the hot cold symbol which I removed but the handle will not come off.
Can you help me figure out how to get to the cartridge
Loosening the set screw behind the small plastic hot/cold plug will allow you to lift the handle straight up. You may need to jiggle it a little bit or twist it, just pull straight up with the faucet handle down and centered. Once the handle comes off, Then the collar should thread off exposing the inner workings of the faucet. You should then be able to unthread a bunch more components and washers until the cartridge top is exposed (depends somewhat on whether it is a pullout hose or seperate sprayer...not sure exactly what model you have but this is the standard for a single handle kitchen faucet...)
Here is a link to a page that shows how your (hopefully your) faucet goes together... also includes the re-order info for cartridge (#8)...
I would also check the supply stops to make sure they are not clogged, because it is definetly a sediment problem.

Goog answer triprea, have to agree with the sediment problem. My dad
had a very similar issue and the sediment had clogged up most of the
faucets in the house. I dipped the aerators from my faucets in vinegar for about an hour and it helped clean them up.
Of course Danze facuets are just as prone to clog from this problem as Moen & Delta, so it's at least not the manufacturers problem.

Turn the water off. The water control knob is located under your sink and is connected to the drain. Turn it counterclockwise to turn off the water.
Open the faucet to relieve any differences in pressure. Pull up on the faucet as you would if you were turning it on.
Plug the drain of the sink with its stopper to prevent any parts from going down it.
Turn the faucet handle sharply to one side to reveal a small cover plate. Pry the plate off carefully with a flat-bladed screwdriver.
Unscrew the screw that is located behind the cover plate with a 4 mm allen key.
Lift the handle off and remove the cap beneath it.
Firmly grip the exposed cartridge with your hands and pull up to remove it.
