Question about American Standard Plumbing

1 Answer

I'm trying to remove the handles from my american standard bathroom faucet. It is from 1992 model 908497. I can't separate the part under the sink from the handle. I have it were I can lift it up about 1 inch. I took the top cap off and took the screw out but it still wont separate.

    Did you ever get this fixed? I am in the same boat. I have 4 sets of these things to remove. I have removed two from the sinks and now onto the tub and shower. The previous owner didn't leave us any way to get behind the wall or extra tile! I don't know about yours but mine are blue and HAVE GOT TO GO.

I think you might need a handle remover tool. It looks like two "L"'s facing each other with a long screw going through the top of the two L's . With a T handle at the top. The two L's go up under the bottom of the faucet handle, and the long screw fits into the screw hole for the faucet handle. A dozen turns or so and the handle pops off the valve stem. Cost about 10-15 dollars at any hardware store. hope this helps.

First, turn off the water supply under the sink. Next, put the faucet lever in the up position, no water should be coming out. While in the up position turn slowly while looking at the underside of the handle and you should be able to find a set screw. It will probable be an "allen head" type and you will need and allen head wrench to loosen it. An allen head looks like a hex shape, 6 sided I believe and is rod shaped. If you don't have one they come in sets at your local hardeware.

Is there an air gap next to the faucet that is leaking. If so, it is probably clogged. Pull the cap off of it and clean it out. This is what it may look like before you take the cap off.

SOURCE: base of faucet leaks- cannot remove set screw at

if you are having trouble removing the set screw make sure you are using the correct size allen wrench and confirm that it is a allen screw and not a trox screw. After doing this try tighten the screw slightly before loosening it. This should break it loose.

delta also uses red and blue,, but its fine, remove the insert and take it to any home improvement store, they will be able to match up the sleeve, if its just a slight drip, you can just replace the bottom washer and faucett seat,, if its a single handle you may have to get the kit that includes the O rings to rebuild it,, be sure and get some plumbers grease when putting it back in,, especially lube the O rings as they usually give out first

How do remove the screen on an American standard bathroom faucet?


Simply unscrew the end of the tap where the screen is. Some faucet models have a small hole just above the screen where you insert a pin that locks the parts together so they can be unscrewed in the counterclock rotation.

I have an American Standard single handle faucet in the bathroom.. When you open the faucet fully the flow rate is very small. The faucet was fine before. How do I adjust the faucet to so that the flow...


What is likely happening is a small piece of sediment has become lodged in either the mixing valve or in the aerator.

Begin with the easiest part first. The aerator is the threaded attachment from which the water comes out of the faucet. Remove the aerator from the faucet and run the tap without it installed. If the flow rate is good either clean or replace the aerator.

If this was not the problem then the solution becomes much trickier because the obstruction is likely in one of the lines coming into the faucet or in the body of the faucet called the mixing valve. This is where the hot and cold water mix inside the faucet.

Our next step is to create negative pressure inside the faucet in an attempt to remove the buildup restricting the flow.

If you don't have shut off valves under the sink you will need to shut off the water supply to the home, remove the faucet from the vanity/sink and perform the following procedure.

Shut the hot and cold water off underneath the sink and remove the supply lines at the shut off valves but leave them connected to the faucet. You will need to purchase two adapters for the aerator that will allow you to connect a garden hose from your closest water supply (kitchen sink) to the vanity faucet. You can find these at your local hardware store. You will also need a pail under the vanity to catch the water coming out of the vanity faucet supply lines. Connect the garden hose from an active water supply to the vanity faucet. With someones help have them turn the water supply on which will then run backwards through the vanity faucet and into the pail underneath the vanity. Be sure to open the vanity faucet taps to full so that water will run through the faucet. This should dislodge the obstruction.

Set screw has been removed from American Standard single lever faucet. How do you remove the faucet


Faucets are fastened with nut(s) under the sink.
-Turn off and disconnect the water supply hose from the faucet.
-If this is a faucet with a sprayer you will need to disconnect the sprayer hose from the faucet as well.
-If this is a bathroom sink you will have to disconnect the drain stopper assembly, this should be self-explain when you look at it.
-Remove the nuts or nut holding the faucet in place. This can be a difficult task to get a wrech or pliers on the nut(s). If you are having difficulty you may need to acquire a tool called a "basin wrench" most hardware stores carry them ask for it, if the person knows his department he will take you right to it. They arn't terribly exspensive.
