I have a fairly new Brita faucet filter. Not long after purchase the red light stayed on. I took out and put back in the filter. Then no light at all, neither red nor green. Today replaced the filter, still no light at all.

I called Brita and was told that the light is powered by an irreplaceable battery in the system which is good for about two years. The tech on the phone said to replace the filter every 4 months as a solution.

I have a moen CAF 87254 faucet and the filtered water portion of the faucet has a very slow leak. What can I do to fix this?


YOU MAY HAVE CROSS THREADED WHEN PUTTING IT BACK ON. YOU MAY HAVE PINCHED AN O RING WHEN PUTTING BACK ON THE O RING MAY HAVE A VERY SMALL SLIT PREVENTING IT FROM SEALING. I HAVE A PURR WATER FILTER ON MY FAUCET & IT LEAKS JUST A BIT BUT THINK IT'S FROM OLD AGE HAVE HAD IT FOR 5 YEARS & THERE IS A VERY SMALL CRACK IN IT. IF YOUR'S IS NOT NEW YOU MAY HAVE THE SAME THING THERE MAY BE A SMALL CRACK IN THE HOUSEING SOME PLACE.

Can you reinstall a FAUCET CARTRIDGE


If you took it out you can put it back in...since you did not indicate
why you took it out I can only guess the tap was leaking....you
may want to consider a new cartridge if there is age on the one
you have.

Regards,
Dennis

PUR Faucet Mount Water Filter indicator light does not work


Take it loose from the faucet and flip the lever down on the filter in the on position. Take the cap off and remove the filter. Blow hard through it. You should hear a whirling noise of a gear, like a windmill. If not, I use a water dental pic to pulsate into it and clean it out. This is what makes the light work and when flow goes down, the light changes color. It's all mechanical. No battery. Just free up the gear so it turns freely to work the light. If standing in front of a mirror, you can actually see the light come on. PUR doesn't tell you this because they want you to purchase another one.

Just purchased the Price Pfister 42-YP. The hot water has limited water - just a trickle. What can i do to adjust?


Hi, David pressuming the water flow was good before you put in this new tap, then other than a problem with the tap! have you checked if you have an isolater valve on the pipe work under the unit, if so check that it is fully opened?
Thanks Paul.

Handle won't stay up


I did the same thing recently, that is replaced the cartridge on my moen kitchen faucet to stop and leak, and I also have the same problem. I called moen back and they sent me another cartridge that was supposed to fit tighter, I suppose. I just put the new one in and it still wont stay up. I'm going to call moen one more time and then I guess I'll have to buy another faucet, but NOT moen!!! Good luck with yours.

No water pressure from Grohe faucet when changed the sink


No, being reversed wouldn't cause it. The only thing that would happen is the direction you turn your handle to get the desired temp. When you remove fittings from plumbing supplies, you can break loose deposits that can clog the faucet. If both the hot and the cold water is affected, then remove the arriator and rinse it clean. That is the little filter looking devise at the end of the spout. But if only one of the supplies are affected (hot or cold) then something has broken loose and is stuck within the valve and needs to be cleaned out. You should take the arriator apart piece by piece making sure to note the order in which you take it apart so it's put back in the right order.

Price pfister faucet handle drops and turns off.


Re the 'falling handle' issue, I think you misunderstood the problem, jgwhomeequip. Unfortunately for me I bought *two* similar Price Pfister faucets and both had the same problem - the water wouldn't stay on and the handle just wouldn't stay up.
I took mine apart looking for something to adjust, fruitlessly. Put it back together and have lived with it like that for ~2 years.

Finally I decided to not be a knucklehead any longer and call the manufacturer. Once I got through to their rep (on a Saturday no less!) she helped me identify the model I had (a 533-50SS, just FYI), and asked me 'what finish'? I replied 'stainless steel' and she promptly replied, 'I'm going to mail you out new lighter handles to replace the ones you have'.

Brilliant! Gold star for PP for standing behind their product well past the warranty for what was apparently a common problem. Replacing the handle will take about 10 seconds per faucet.

I only wish I had got of my a$$ and called them 2 years ago.
