We have a problem with not having good water pressure. Is there a way to adjust pressure?


is low pressure limited to just one particular faucet...lavatory, kitchen, etc...? is pressure low on both hot and cold? if so, the first thing to check is the aerator..where water come out of spout..if all fixtures are have low pressure..you could get a water pressure gauge at hm depot..or local hardware store and check incoming house pressure at outside hosebid..you mite have a faulty pressure reducing valve usually located at owner side of city water meter..

Hansgrohe Kitchen Faucet low water pressure


Try removing the aerator and handspray to clean out any debris that may have accumulated. After 8 years there could be quite a buildup if it hasn't been regularly cleaned.

What is that rattling sound when i use my kitchen faucet in the extreme hot or extreme cold position?


Water hammer: is a loud banging or clanging of the pipes usually occurring when a valve is turned on or off due to loose pipes.

Solution: Anchor the offending pipes to the wall. Buy water hammer arrestors. Also Lower the water pressure with a pressure reducing valve

Hope this tip Helps.

No water pressure on Pegasus kitchen single handle faucet


Those new faucets generally have a lower water pressure due to legislation passed in 2007 that reduced that maximum allowable gpm (gallons per minute). I hate to tell anyone this but there is little if anything you can do. First of all, make sure the shut-off valves are open completely. I know that sounds elementary but I've seen it a bunch of times.

Also check to see if the aerator is blocked with a bit of debris.....unlikely if the flow is uniform but still an easy fix.

Hope I didn't break your spirit too much....

Water flow is too powerful..


I got you, you want a screen to be put on the spout!
check the inside of the spout. there may be a internal thread, if it is, then you can get a external thread screen from home depot.

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.
