Kitchen facet has been losing water pressure.

Today it stopped working. When you turn the water on, only a few drip come out. Do I need a new facet or is this repairable?

Faucets are normally fitted with an aerator that screws on. These can get clogged with minerals from hard water and cause the problem you're having. Try unscrewing the aerator and removing it. It may be pretty tight, but it will come off. Slip-joint pliers with the jaws wrapped with vinyl tape to prevent scratching the chrome can help.

Once the aerator's off you'll probably find the water works properly. It might be possible to clean out the aerator, but the best solution is to get a replacement at a hardware store or big-box home improvement store. They're only a couple of dollars and a new one will be more reliable.

How to change out copper piping from release valve


If the release valve referred to is the pressure release valve, then a water leak out the attached vent pipe is an indication that the valve is failing. To change the valve, the water must be allowed to cool (turn off AC power or gas) and the water level inside the tank must be lowered (drained) to below the level of the pressure relief valve. Once this is accomplished the vent pipe is unscrewed from the relief valve and the pressure relief valve is unscrewed from the water tank. A new pressure relief valve with a sealant on the threads, is then screwed and tightened into place with the outlet port facing downward. The vent pipe is attached to the new valve and the tank refilled with water. A hot water facet must be opened to allow air to exit while filling. Upon becoming full (water will begin to flow from facet), turn off the facet and restore AC power or gas, therefore allowing the water heater to heat up. When the first hot water is utilized there may be some air expelled from the facet.

Faucet installed 9/94 and still looks like new. But in past few days have begun seeing slow drip running down from one of the inner metal flexible hoses when faucet is on and for maybe 5-10 min after water...


Try tighten the hoses, if this don't work the seal in hose connectors may need replaced, very simple and cheap to replace. over time the hot water will wear down the seal it will go bad with pressure and water period. It's a good thing to change these all while you are there.

My Moen kitchen faucet stopped working suddenly in that only a thin stream of water would flow at most when I turned on the hot water handle or the cold water handle to the maximum positions. I replaced...


wow... I wish you hadn't gone thru the expense of replacing the faucet... it's perfectly good... your problem was the aerator, it unscrews at the tip of the water spout and had collected too much sediment which eventually blocked water flow. Often happens quickly after your water is shut off at the main valve. Aerators cost about 50 cents...

My Danze Anu Kitchen Faucet


Sounds like you have hard water.  You need to change the inside of the facet.  before doing anything make sure you CAN get the parts for you facet.   Danze are not very expencive you might just get a new facet.  If this is a hard water problem you might want to buy a moen facet with a life time warrinty.  More money but free replacement parts.

Losing hot water in one facet only


There is something in the line or in the faucet.Are your pipes going to the faucet black iron or galvinze.Some of the pipe will rust up and stop a full flow of water.But I would check the faucet first to see if the screw is loose or somethng in it.

Bath tube plumbing is making vibrating sound then shutting off


Replace the cartridge even if its new. The vibrating is from the internal workings of the stem. It also effects the volume of water.


good luck, Phil
