Replace diverter in 2 handle aqua source kitchen faucet


For a dual-handle Aquasource kitchen faucet with spray hose, the following instructions will afford replacement of the diverter. These instructions specifically refer to the faucet illustrated at http://pdf.lowes.com/installationguides/6953123900358_install.pdf, and the diverter identified as part RP70007 (item 14). Note the position of notches at the top of the diverter and around the rim of the base of the diverter, either of which can be used to leverage a tool to rotate the diverter out of position. Caution: The diverters on older faucets may be exceptionally brittle and thus very difficult to remove.

1. Using a pipe wrench or similar large-mouth wrench, unscrew the base of the faucet. Wrap the base with a cloth or other protective material to prevent scratching during the process of unscrewing. The base unscrews in a counter-clockwise direction.
2. With the base removed, remove the faucet. Note that a small amount of water may drain from the faucet when removed.
3. Removal of the base reveals the top of the diverter, which is a white, plastic cylinder approximately two inches long with copper stopper in the bottom. Insert a wide, flat-blade screwdriver across the notches in the top of the diverter - but be *extremely* careful. A faucet that has been installed for some length of time may have an exceptionally brittle diverter. If the upper shaft of the diverter breaks, a pair of needle-nose pliers may be used in the notches around the *base* of the diverter. Carefully rotate the diverter counter-clockwise to remove it.
4. Insert the new diverter and screw it into place in a clockwise direction. Apply a wide, flat blade across the notches in the top of the diverter to apply slight additional pressure to tighten the diverter just beyond hand-tightness.
5. Re-insert the faucet.
6. Screw the base back into position, tightening as necessary.
7. Test the operation of the diverter by operating the cold and/or hot water faucets, then the spray handle.

My husband installed a new KWC Domo faucet in our kitchen yesterday. When he was finished, he turned the faucet on and got a trickle of water. We are stumped and the instructions are no help.


Take off the aerator from the spout (it just screws on, and should not be so tight you need a wrench) and then run the water. You'll probably find the aerator screen is clogged with debris and you can wash it off. This often happens when you turn the water supply off to connect the new faucet. After you clean off the aerator and screw it back into place your new faucet should work fine.

How do you remove the tri handle?


You just pull the handles straight off the faucet. There are no screws or bolts holding the handles. Only a friction guide attached to the faucet stem. You can see this guide in the Grohe Classic Kitchen/Bar Faucet 31.057.000 installation instructions.

Hi folks, seems stupid, but I'm changing the cartridge on my american standard kitchen faucet. If I line up the holes on the botton of the cartridge with the holes in the fixture, I don't have the ability...


Most likely you need to adjust the hot limit safety stop which restricts handle swing to limit the high temp of the water and avoid scalding... check out this link to the install manual for your faucet. Also includes detailed diagram of cartridge alignment just in case you need it.

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).
