Barclay 4073-PL Diverter Bathcock Tub: Thoughts on why the water pressure is low on the hot spigot but not on the cold, and not on any other faucet in the house?

Has been operating just great until recently when hot water pressure seems stunted. Not so on other faucets so my thought is something is being affected in the tub faucet. I removed the stubborn side and rinsed it out, but still not flowing properly.

Debris can get into the shower body/cartridge. Pull out the cartridge and flush the shower body and clean out the cartridge. Sometimes you need to replace the cartridge.

SOURCE: low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.

  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

SOURCE: Greetings! My Kohler kitchen faucet

Begin by shutting off the water to the faucet. Then, on the back of the handle you will find a small button. remove it with a small knife blade and underneath you will see a 1/8" set screw. Use a 1/8" inch allen wrench to remove the set screw. You can then unscrew the bonnet and remove the diverter. Take the diverter to a hardware store or plumbing supply to purchase the appropriate repair kit. goodluck.

SOURCE: moen roman tub faucet on hot water side stops

If this occurs after you were able to get hot water to flow from the hot side then I suspect that it is a piece of debriis that has found its way to block the port opening. Remove the acess panel to the valve shut the water supply off to the tub valve using the handles only first on the valve. With the access panel removed tak e a bucket or other similar container and remove the hot water tubing from the spout. Once that is accomplished stick the tube into the container and turn the hot lever on. This should blow out any debris that may exist. Reassemble the valvle. If this did not work remove both the cold and hot feed tubes from the spout and use an air compressor to blow the spout out. If neither of these worked you will probably need to call a serviceman to resolve as other options require cutting the hot supply to the handle and may require special tools that you may not have handy. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

sometimes check the faucet screws they come loose or if they are old you might want to replace the whole diverter, take them to lowes or home depot and have them guys in the plumbing department hook you up. trust me you are opening a can of worms with rubber valve seats just get new ones. Make sure before pulling you cut off water supply to them.

We began replaceing our galvanized pipes. Since


The problem is that when you disturb the galv. pipes, the gunk inside breaks loose, and travels to the faucets, gets stuck, and limits the volume of water that comes out.
If possible open the lines at the service valves, and force water through the spigot to fluch out the faucet. The service value could also be partially clogged, keep that in mind

Water sprays out the diverter


Remove hot/cold button in handle, remove screw/pull off handle. Remove the two screws in the wall plate/remove plate. Use a wrench to remove the diverter assembly. Get new diverter assy and reinstall eveything. You don't need to turn off the water.

My 3 handle bathtub fauset [price pfisher] cycles hot and cold


You will need to either replace center "shower diverter"assembly or a quicker fix would be to remove old tub water fill spout and replace with a "pull up diverter knob" type water spout. Cost about 10 dollars Hdepot Pull Knob to divert water to shower when showering.
