Hope someone can help.....
Every time i use my kitchen sprayer I completely lose water pressure (hot& cold) in the sink for a couple of days. This time I lost pressure all together(3 weeks).The sprayer never worked. I have seperate hot cold knobs. How can I take the sprayer out for good? assuming this is the problem.

Check the diverter in the sprayer

The problem is in the faucet diverter. Aptly named because it diverts the water pressure from the spout to the sprayer. This is a common problem, and in most cases, a relatively easy fix. The diverter is either broken or sticking in the open position. Depending on the brand of faucet, you can purchase replacement/repair parts at your local home improvement store. If you are the least bit mechanically inclined, you can find repair instructions online from the faucet manufacturer's website or a DIY site.

Sorry to say, you will need to replace that faucet, and also when you are shopping for a replacement, inquire about a rosette to cover the hole left by the voided sprayer.
Good luck...

Grohe kitchen faucet. I have good flow on cold water, but virtually none for hot water in Grohe bridgeford kitchen single faucet, is this a cartridge problem or worse?


try looking at the service valves located under the sink, the screwdriver slot should be in line with the flow of water,but some times the valve appears to work but it may have jammed shut even though it is in flow position,replacement is straightforward ,make shore the water is shut off elsewhere before removal.

No hot water pressure in kitchen, low cold pressure


sounds like a bad faucet//only if you had good pressure before it was installed..to cheaply test..take the hot water off from the shutoff valve and spray it into a milk jug to see if theres good flow..then replace the faucet assmbly..dont forget to turn off the shutoff valve first..or you will get a watery surprise!

The line connecting to the sprayer hose was bent during installation. Can this cause low water pressure? Can it be fixed without replacing?


Kathryn, the kink could restrict flow of water because there is so much less room. To remove the kink you could try pressing the two sides of the kink BUT that is risky. Have a replacement ready in case you damage it further. DO ALL THIS WITH WATER SHUT OFF. If you manage to straighten the kink even a bit more, water will flow better.GL

Replace button on pull-out sprayer


With your faucet in the off position pull the sprayer out. Unscrew the hose that connects to the sprayer. This lets you take the sprayer to someplace where you can sit down. The front of the sprayer where the water comes out unscrews as well. You may need to use a nonslip mat or a piece of rubber but you can undo this by hand. Once you have this off a small piece (airator) can come out that helps control water flow into a steady stream instead of the way water comes out of a garden hose with no nozzle. form here you'll be able to see how the old button fits into the sprayer, pop it out and replace with the new one. Assemble in reverse.

How to install supply lines for Grohe k4 faucet


I hope this helps.
Step11Turn off the water supply. You'll find a shut-off valve under your kitchen sinkmag-glass_10x10.gif. Once the water is turned off, open up the kitchen faucets to allow the water remaining in the pipes to drain way. Step2Catch the drips by placing a bucket under the hot water supply line, located on the left side of your sink. Even a minimum of water can cause a mess and be potentially damaging. Step3Use a wrench to remove the compression nut that secures the hot water supply line. Let the disconnected section fall into the bucket. Use the wrench to loosen and remove the nut at the other end of the line and remove it as well. Step4Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for the cold water supply line. Step5Replace the cold water supply line. Hand-tighten the nuts on both ends, then use the wrench to tighten the nuts completely. Repeat the process with the hot water supply line. Step6Turn on the water supply and test for leaks

Kitchen sink only running with the sprayer


It is hard to be certain without knowing the type of faucet, but if you have the type that has a single lever, it could be 2 things I can think of. If you have seperate knobs, I can only think of one. If you have the type with knobs, take the aerator screen off the end of the faucet, The screen may be plugged with saw cuttings of pvc or what ever type of pipe, or even the water saver orifice may be stopped up. If water runs freely with aerator off, you obviously have a problem there.
If you have the lever type, the ball valve can be in backwards, or even a little way off, and the water can not get to the faucet. I am guessing, the whole faucet assembly MAY be in backwards, but that too can usually be fixed by changing the ball around.
Hope this fixes you up!
