I don't think it is the flow restrictor. I am guessing your water pressure is on too high. That would cause the whistling.

Faucet dripping


Call Price Pfister at 1-800-PFAUCET and ask them to send you a new hot and cold stem for free. These faucets are easy to repair. Here is the parts breakdown for your faucet. Turn the water supply of to the faucet. Remove the index button from the top of each handle. Unscrew the handle retaining screw. Pull the handle off. Unscrew the stems with an adjustable wrench; turn them counterclockwise. Install the new stems and reinstall the hanldes; it may take a couple of times to get them set in just the right positions. Slowly turn the water back on and open the faucet.

I installed Series 26 Avalon faucet. The water flow rate is very slow. All fittings to the faucet are new. Could the problem be a faulty valve ?


Remove and clean the Price Pfister aerator. Turn the water on after you remove the aerator and check the flow-rate. Many new Lavatory and kitchen faucets are now equipped with Eco friendly water saver aerators. if the flow is normal without the aerator, the faucet is OK. if you want more water flow from your lavatory faucet, you will need to buy one of the old style high flow aerators from your hardware store. If you remove the aerator and still get low pressure from both hot and cold faucets, you may need to replace the faucet. Call the Price Pfister warranty phone number that came with your faucet.

Handle on faucet shuts off on its own


I had the same problem. The Price Pfister web site recommends removing the handle (unscrew the dome cap, then remove the phillips screw to get the handle off) then tightening the retaining ring (I used channel lock pliers on largest setting. It worked. However the retaining ring is plastic on some models, and they recommend replacing it with a brass one. I haven't taken that step yet, we'll see how it goes (mine is plastic).
