Question about Plumbing
How do I adjust the flow limiter on this? The brochure with the faucet does not refer to this specific faucet.
I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
You want to know if you can fix a sudden low volume /pressure delivery problem on an American Standard model AS4205100 H7, one hole / single lever with pullout spray And is it fixable by owner?
Yes and maybe!
All plumbing systems are plauged with debrie buildup. Every time you turn on a faucet the water starts moving and will bring bits of debrie up from the water main or well. Most are small and will pass through to be caught by the screen in the aireator. Sometimes a relatively large piece comes along and dosen't make it through to the screen. It is stuck in the body of the valve.
Fixing takes a little mechanical ability.
First, turn off the water to the faucet in question. Then carefully disasemble paying close attention to the order of disasembly so you can reverse the order when putting back together. As each part is removed inspect it for that troublesome bit. I find that a little bit of wire or a paper clip is helpfull. Carefully reasemble. If the volume is still low then you missed finding that bit. Try again or call in a local pro.

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

This could be a couple of things.
Hope this helps!

There is a price pfister little emblem under neath the handle. Use a but knife and pop that off. Once that is off there is a allen bolt in there. Tighten it up, put the emblem back and away you go

This faucet is designed to run full open and has no adjustments for lowering the flow. I would put something around the handle to keep the lever from opening completely maybe some pipe insulation or tape. Now you could get into the hose connection where the filter screen is and make a small washer type deal with a small hole in it to restrict the flow.
