Could be trash got into hose( i.e., teflon tape, brass shavings, etc.). I suggest that you turn off water, disconnect the hose and try flushing water through the hose with no sprayer attached. If water goes through, then you have a stoppage in the sprayer. The face of the sprayer usually unscrews allowing you to check if there is trash in it.

SOURCE: Loss of pressure in kitchen faucet - Price Pfister

Your problem is a simple one.

  1. Turn off water to faucet.
  2. Place a towel(s) in the base of the sink(s) to prevent any parts from going down drain.
  3. Remove the handle to the faucet. (single handle only)
  4. If not a single handle then remove spout from faucet.
  5. If a single handle remove cap carefully and any loose parts.
  6. Gently turn spout side to side while lifting to remove.
  7. You will see a hole with a very small valve where the water comes out to the spout on the base of the faucet.

  1. Remove this valve (which is a backflow preventer) and replace.
  2. Reassemble and test.
Problem solved.

Turning the water off, letting it drain from pipes, then turning it back on can cause debris inside the pipes to loosen and clog your aerator or flow constrictor in the faucet.

Or your new faucet could have an aggressive flow restrictor. You can sometime remove the restrictor or use a drill to increase the size of the hole if its a simple plastic washer.

How to disconnect the quick connect spray hose in a Price Pfister Parisa


I also needed to remove the "hidden" flow restricters from my Price Pfister Parisa Kitchen Pull out faucet. The hot water side had never flowed the same as the cold side. Now both sides are flowing the same as should have been all along.

I need a replacement handle, including all the parts and hoses, on my Price Pfister Marielle kitchen faucet model # T26-4NEE


Most new kitchen faucets feature single-handle control levers and washerless designs that rarely require maintenance. Additional features include brushed metallic finishes, detachable spray nozzles, or even push-button controls.Connect the faucet to hot and cold water lines with easy-to-install flexible supply tubes made-from vinyl or braided steel. If your faucet has a separate sprayer, install the sprayer first. Pull the sprayer hose through the sink opening and attach to the faucet body before installing the faucet.

Where local codes allow, use plastic tubes for drain hookups. A wide selection of extensions and angle fittings lets you easily plumb any sink configuration. Manufacturers offer kits that contain all the fittings needed for attaching a food disposer or dishwasher to the sink drain system.

Hey,
We have the same problem. Just called Price Pfister with the same question, and she offered to courier replacement parts free of charge. She was much too accomodating. My suspicion is that she gets this question quite regularly. Love to know if anyone has solved this problem as we like the look of the faucet.

Lack of Water Pressure


If you have the spray head type, I had the same problem...called Grohe. They said to remover the pressure regulator. Take off the spray head, and just inside the end where the water comes in, you will see a white plastice thingy. Remove it. They said you can do it with needle nose pliers, but I had to pry it our with a tiny screwdriver. It came out in pieces, but once out, the water pressure is GREAT!
