    The hot water was running OK. I turned the tap off and there was a bit of a 'clunk' and then it started running very slowly the next time I turned it on

SOURCE: slow running tap

If you have recently turned off your water supply you may have disturbed some sediment in the water lines causing this problem.....Unscrew the airator at the end of the faucet and there is a screen inside( take note how this screen is in place). This should give you water pressure back!

SOURCE: shower mixer taps

look for a scald safety screw adjustment. Remove the handle, and it is underneath. this is for safety of young children, and is factory set.

SOURCE: mixer tap makes a noise like a fog horn when cold water turned on

Usually happens when the stops and not ballanced(hot and cold pressures going to the faucet). Try ajusting the stops; open more on the hot or close more on the cold.

SOURCE: Hot water tap - no pressure and splutters

Do you have your own hot water tank? or is there one serving many units? There is a 'dip tube' in hot water tanks, if it gets old it sometimes deteriorates and small parts of plastic get loose and will float around in the tank, if a piece finds it way up to the outlet then that might explain why you are getting the low water pressure. one wat to check is to twist off the aerotor on the end of your faucet, if there are any small pieces of white plastic then you will have to replace the dip tube and maybe even flush out the tank. it is also possible that a piece of plastic has traveled up the water line and it stuck in the faucet cartridge.

SOURCE: glacier bay kitchen faucets with 2 handles and a sprayer

to be honest with you if there is a problem the glacier bay brand is from home depot and they are usualy around 20 to 30 dollars the replacement stems are usualy 15 to 40 depending on the part plus the hours ur gonna spend fixing it your better off with a full replacement. if replaced keep in mind you might want to replace the supliy lines to the faucet with stainless steal suply lines to ensure no leaks and if your shut offs are old dont touch them shut off your water main and drain down your house by opening all the faucets and shower valvs in your house then drain at the lowest point in the house weather it be a sink in the basement or an out side faucet once the supliy lines and faucet is in place then close all the faucets you opened and slowly turn on the water to your house slowly and this will ensure you dont have any leeks from your shutoffs good luck  your friendly plumber

Have single handle faucet with pull out sprayer. Whe I turn handle toward the hot side the water pressure drops almost to a trickle. Turn to cold and it is ok. What is problem and how to fix Thanks


Check under the sink at the valves that the hot and cold water lines are connected to. See if the hot water one is turned on all the way.

The swing mixer handle has become very stiff. how do i get it off to clean it/


The first solution is of course correct. However I found it almost impossible to remove the spout assembly. It was very stiff and it was difficult to get any leverage to force it off without damaging the finish to the tap as a whole or damaging the sink.

What I found was that if you poured boiling water over the tap/faucet it eased the stiffness and having done this several times - ie about 5 kettle loads of hot water, I managed to remove the spout. It helps if you reconnect the hose directly to the outlet under the sink (ie not via the faucet). THis allows you to run cold water through the tap whilst pourung boiling water over the outside of the tap. The cold water shrinks the copper/brass components whilst the hot water expands the spout assembly.
Once off, it is possible to clean the inside of the assembly to remove corrosion or calcium deposits to say nothing of old "O" rings.

I also used a kettle descaler between dousing with boiling water in the hope that some of it would seep down within the assembly.

It took me three attempts to do this. I was almost going to spend UK pounds 430 or US dollars 670 and buy a new unit. So do not give up and I hope this helps.
It swings backward and forward now perfectly.

How to replace cartridge on blanco single handle


Somewhere around where the handle fixes to the tap should be a grubscrew of some kind undoing this will allow the handle to be removed this will give you access to the cartridge which can then be removed with the correct socket, obviously you will need to turn off the water supply to the tap first!!

Had new mixer taps fitted on sink and bath (water pressure was fine hot and cold before) but now have very low pressure on hot water. can anyone please help, as its taking 35 mins to run a bath.??????


can you check some other source of hot water? if the pressure there is ok?..if it is, then the problem is on the new tap that you fitted.
