SOURCE: kitchen faucet , reduced water flow / pressure

Hi ssam1

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.

SOURCE: No water pressure in kitchen sink. Not the aerator.

First of all we like to check the easy/cheap things first.

1. Are the shut-off valves closed lightly?

If they are closed, open them.....easiest fix of them all.

2. If the valves are open then possibly a washer is shifted.

Turn off the water supply at the valves under the sink. Remove the handles by removing the set screw under the handles. There should then be a packing nut which holds all of the "guts" of the faucet in. Remove this nut and pull out the long stem. On the bottom of this stem is a flat washer that may have been damaged or is just slightly shifted. EIther way, I would replace it if the faucet is more then a few years old as it is cheap and you already have access to it. WHen replacing the valve stem, be sure to use a plumbers grease on all rings and seals. The rest of the replacement is the same are the removal.



Hope this helps.

I have a brand new moen muirfield high arc faucet with low pressure at spout but good pressure at side spray what can i do to get better pressure at spout


clevine336-

The design of a hand sprayer is meant to provide a higher pressure spray (the smaller outlet size means greater velocity in the water coming out of the sprayer head). That said, there could be something constricting the water flow in your faucet. If you unscrew the aerator on the end of the faucet do you get better pressure? Is the screen in the aerator clogged with sediment or mineral deposits? If this is the case you may have water requiring periodic cleaning of the aerator.

Hope this helps.

New moen kitchen single handle. Worked for one full day. Now no water pressure.


Unthread end of faucet (aerator) where the water comes out into sink, under the aerator is a screen & a plastic valve.It has sediment & rust which will disrupt the flow & pressure.Careful not to flush it down the drain. Tip upside down, while holding it together with finger. Flush it under the faucet. It is not uncommon to get plugged up initialy because of the new installation.

Trying to be a plumber for my daughter & son-in-law. House is maybe 4 yrs. Old. The Moen 7840 has inadequate pressure to the faucet. The sprayer is fine. Sometimes it works Okay.


The sometimes it works OK puzzles me a little, but I will do my best here. From the description you gave my first thought is the water saver in the aerator. If you havn't already, remove the aerator on the end of the spout and turn on the water and see if that makes a difference. If so you may want to remove the water saver from the aerator. It is usualy a plastic peice about the size of a dime with a small hole or holes in it. While you have this apart you may want to clean the screens as well. The works sometimes may mean that the diverter dor the spray is hanging and that is another story alltogether. Try the aerator fist. I hope this helps.

Low pressure,cleaned screen in tip,checked incoming supply,seems strong,yet pressure is low??


Has pressure always been low? If faucet is new than there will be a flow restricter in the aerator. Most flow restricters can be removed easily. Some are a pain. Have you tried checking the pressure with the aerator off. That would tell you if the problem is there or in the valve.

My moen vestage faucet is dropping water pressure. It worked fine when it was installed but the water volume out of the faucet has dropped to less than half of what it was.


Have you removed aerator ,screen etc., from end of tap, to see how flow is with it off. If good, or same as other taps when taken off of them, then you've got debris in aerator, and screen.

My Moen kitchen faucet stopped working suddenly in that only a thin stream of water would flow at most when I turned on the hot water handle or the cold water handle to the maximum positions. I replaced...


wow... I wish you hadn't gone thru the expense of replacing the faucet... it's perfectly good... your problem was the aerator, it unscrews at the tip of the water spout and had collected too much sediment which eventually blocked water flow. Often happens quickly after your water is shut off at the main valve. Aerators cost about 50 cents...

I have a new Moen 87530 kitchen faucet and the water pressure is greatly decreased. Is there an adjustment. It is not the valves which are fully open.


Try unscrewing the aerator at the end of the faucet and cleaning it. It may have gotten some trash in it during installation.
