How do I clean the spout screen in my lavatory faucet. I can't seem to unscrew it. It won't budge. Is it meant to be unscrewed?

Afraid to use pliers because the trim is gold and appears delicate

Most are screwed on. Most are hand tight but if not and its gold you might want to have a Plummer have a look.

Faucets are installed from behind the wall and there fore you will need to either cut the sheetrock on the opposing side or cut part of the tile out on the front to gain access to the valve. It is better if you come in from behind as you can build an access panel if you ever need to gain access again.
Thanks for using Fix Ya.

SOURCE: Unable to loosen and unscrew kitchen faucet screen...

If you have a lime problem, try soaking the tip in boiling water with vineger added to it. The acetic acid in the vineger disolves the lime. I did it just last week when I serviced my kitchen faucet. It may take quite a while for the lime to disolve, but in the end you will achieve your goal.

Clean aerator


The have to unscrew the screen keeper from the faucet. The screen keeper is a threaded cylinder that extends out of the faucet about 3 mm. You need to use a "strap wrench". You can get a "strap wrench" at Ace, Sears, Walmart, Kmart, or Harbor Freight.

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.

Regards,

Can I remove the screen filter in the kitchen faucet and clean it? A112.18.1M 2.26pm 8.33L 7MIN. I don't want to try to unscrew the part and find out I shouldn't have. How should I unscrew it?


Yes, the aerator (where the water comes out) can be unscrewed and removed from the faucet. I remove these and clean them out on a regular basis. If the aerator won't unscrew by hand, place a washcloth over the aerator (to prevent scratching) and carefully turn it with a pair of pliers. (Screw direction to loosen: Looking down on faucet, with pliers to the right-hand side, pull them toward you.) Make sure the rubber washer is properly placed in the top of the aerator after you have cleaned it out and you go to screw it back on. You normally don't need pliers to put it back on, as these are meant to be screwed on hand-tight. There might be several little parts inside the aerator to take apart and clean out, so be very careful to put these parts back together the same way they came apart. I find a toothpick is often useful to clean these out, as well as a cup of water to rinse them in.

How do i unscrew the collar from a moen montecello spout assembly. there is a lot of calcium deposit.


I would use what is called a strap wrench it would be best. That way you do not mess up the finish on your faucet or leave marks on it from a pair of channel lock pliers.

The pressure in my Delta faucet is suddenly low. The pressure throughout the rest of the house is fine. What is wrong? I replaced several pieces of the faucet but nothing worked.


Take the hoses off on the bottom of the faucet and blow air back through the faucet. Dirt can plug up the small openings right where the water enters the faucet. By the way I hope you checked the areator on the end of the spout, Dirt can plug that up also.

No shower water


the spout is also the diverter which sends the water up to the shower head. Assumming that the shower head isn't clogged with lime you should be able to solve the problem by removing the spout and taking it to a hardware store or home depot for a replacement. Most spouts just unscrew but some have a set screw which holds em in place. Look for the set screw on the underside of the spout. good luck
