SOURCE: remove water saver device from Blanco Grace kitchen faucet

Remove the aerator at the end of the spout. It will unscrew and once off it will have a dime sized restricter in it that can be removed this restrict's the water down to about 1.6 gpm to save water.
It will either be plastic or metal and about the size of a dime with a small holw in it to let water pass by maybe 1/8" hole just remove it and put aerator back together.

Clean aerator screen out before you put it back together. This link has a breakdown of parts. Look at parts 8b-10 for aerator breakdown.

At the end of my kitchen faucet a small piece of plastic which controls the water flow fell out. it's 12 years old. is it repairable?

Yesd. It simply screws out. There should be two flat spots where you can use an adjustable crescent wrench to unscrew it. Bring it to the hardware store or plumbing supply that carries Blanco so they can give you the right one.

I've bought a Blanco 1.5 bowl sink. It came supplied with a universal odour trap and waste kit. I'm struggling to figure out how to fit them both without cutting some of the plastic pipe. Any...

Generally you often have to trim some of the plastic drain pipe to get things to fit in your particular situation. Just be sure to cut the end that goes into the compression fitting, Don't cut an end that has threads or a rim on it. Cut the pipe carefully with a saw or better yet a hacksaw. It enjoys cracking and will do so if given half a chance. The good news is it is chap and available at every hardware store. So cut and trim away just leave enough so that it will fit a good 1 1/4 inch plus into the other pipe. Hope this helps

it is more than likely that it is a ceramic insert and they do handle grit , dirt or anything else very well
the fix here will be to remove that ceramic insert and clean out anything that is found
a point of interest here is this
one small section equals all the pipe is in the same condition
you should consider replacing all of the gal pipe with either copper tubing or high pressure plastic pipe

Refrigerator gushing water through ice maker filter

Filters themselves don't usually leak. Check full insertion of filter, cracked filter housing or cracked supply line.

My blanco kitchen mixer does not swivel. It is stuck in one place

You need to remove the handle and then remove the top cover to the housing. After the cap is removed you can pull off the spout. It probably needs new washers. You will see what you need to fix it at this point. Just remember to turn off your water before doing this.

Ge water filter cracks

The issue is with length of the filter and the space behind the filter allowing it to bend.

Along with many people we put a lot of things in our frig. When you jam things into your frig they can hit the filter causing it to bend towards the back of the frig. The long filter becomes a lever putting extra force on the plastic threads on the filter causing them to crack and leak.

Luckly we noticed our leak early and did not have a big leak into the floor below. But when I was removing items from the frig to get to the filter we had just bought two big gallons of milk and one was jammed into the filter.

You can try to remember to not put to much on that side, but within a month you will for get. Best thing to do until GE comes up with a better filter is to tape a wedge to the filter that fills the space between the filter and the back of the frig. That way if you jam a big gallon milk into the filter it will not bend and crack.
