We have a new Price Pfister 49 Series bathroom faucet set with two handles. Even with the hot water tap open full the water just dribbles out


If you have full pressure on the cold water side and low pressure on the hot side then you well need to remove and clean or replace the cartridge for the hot side. If you have low water pressure on both sides try removing the aerator and cleaning it.
If you need to replace the cartridge on the hot side do both sides while you at it.
Whenever you work on any faucet before you turn the water on remove the aerator and run the water for a few seconds then replace the aerator.

We have a Delta 172 single handle faucet. We had our hot water heater replaced. Now it takes longer for hot water to get to the faucet. Could debris (calcium build up, etc.) from the replacement get in...


Yes, debris from water heater replacements often breaks lose and gets stuck. The problem could potentially be anywhere between water heater and the faucet. The faucets shut off valves or the Delta faucet cartridge itself. Turn the hot and cold water valves off under the sink and disconnect the water supply lines from the faucet. aim the water supply lines into a bucket and turn the valves on one at a time. If there is a significant reduction in the water pressure and volume on the hot water side, you need to replace the shut off valve. If there is no reduction in water pressure, you need to clean and/or replace the Delta faucet cartridge. Contact Delta to receive free replacement parts.

No water when valve is turned all the way to hot side


Remove the faucet handle and trim. Close of the check valve stops on each side of the valve body with a flat screwdriver. Remove the balancing spool and Moen cartridge. Look for and mineral buildup in side the faucet and on the spool or cartridge. If there is buildup on the spool and cartridge, place them in a large bowel with a cup of vinegar and a teaspoon of baking soda. The solution will remove the buildup in a few minutes. Replace the Moen faucet parts and test the faucet. If there is buildup inside the faucet body, use a wire copper fitting brush to the remove the minerals from inside the spool and cartridge tubes of the faucet body. Turn the stop valves on just a little to wash out the debris before reinstalling the spool and moen faucet cartridge. If the is is still no pressure on the one side or the other, turn off all the water to the house and remove the check valve stops, clean them as well and the inside of the faucet. If all else fails, replace the stops, spool and cartridge. Beyond that, the water supply lines may need to be flushes with the same solution.bbfb399.jpg

Low water pressure


Remove the spray head and point the hose into the sink drain. Turn the faucet on. If you have good pressure, cal American Standard for a free replacement spray head.
If you still have low water pressure without the spray head, ask them for a new faucet cartridge.
After replacing the faucet cartridge, if you still have low water pressure you will need to ask for a new faucet, possibly free if yours is still under warranty.

Water will not turn off


are the handle extensions on the cartridges all the way. i know sometimes the moens are a pain after you put the trim on to get them on and seated right so it actually spins the cartridge. also check the cartridge alignment the cartridges have little white tabs on the sides that correspond with a slot in the valve body if they aren't aligned it won't shut off either

Kitchen Faucet 6310 020 White - HOT WATER SIDE NOT WORKING


The faucet cartridge is more then likely blocked and the faucet will have to be disassembled in order to unblock it.
While it is disassembled you should slowly turn on the water lines to make sure the water ways in the faucet are clear. And thoroughly check the cartridge for damage. Replace if necessary.
Replacement Cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or Big Box Stores such as Lowes or the like.
