Hello Ronald G Amann,

The supply lines are many and varied...But unless the wall VALVES are the brand new 1/4 turn BALL VALVES
THERE is an opportunity to make the PERFECT UPGRADE.
(lots of choices here too...).

The are PUSH FIT quick coupling... as well as large supplies of braided flex lines... Simplicity is the key to avoiding FUTURE LEAKS...

Do NOT over-tighten any fittings.
Don't UNDERESTIMATE the effectiveness of the new SHARK-BITE couplings

Water is not coming out of faucet


Is this an old faucet or newly installed? If old, trace the issue back to the blockage, if new, be sure the supply line valves are open beneath sink.

The shut offs under the sink are green, and wont turn how do I cleam and turn them without breaking them


I would not mess with them. They make a repair valve that has a female 3/8 compression nut on one side and the other side is the normal 3/8 od fitting. Turn the water off to the house, disconnect the supply lines, put the valves on and then reattach the supply lines. Now you have shut offs and can service the faucet.

Low hot water pressure on Grohe LadyLux.


1. If by replacing the flexible hose you mean the hose for the pull-out portion - you have more than likely kinked or bent the supply line to the hot (left) side of the faucet.
a) If this supply is braided, then simply shutting of the water supply, removing the braided line and either replacing or attempting to straighten it out will be your best bet.
b) If the supply is copper, you will have to cut the line cleanly and carefully. you will then most likely need a 1/4" or 3/8" compression/quickconnect BY 1/2" IP fitting to complete your repair.
2. Other possibilities include:
a) Failure inside the faucet body which will most likely be warrantied by Grohe if you push them hard enough.
b) A problem at your hot water tank, most likely the outlet side and *perhaps* you hadn't noticed the problem elsewhere.
c) The hot valve failing to reopen fully despite all appearances; applies if you turned off the water under the sink for your repair.

I have a new hose for my Grohe Euro Plus to replace a leaking old one. I have disconnected it from the water supply but now the ends of the the old hose will not fit through part connected to the sink...


There are 2 sets of nuts and washers underneath the faucet that holds the faucet in place. loosen them and the water lines (after turning the water off) faucet lifts off from the top of the sink. Replacement the the same, just in reverse. BE SURE TO USE TEFLON TAPE OR PLUMBERS PUTTY ON THE WATER LINE THREADS TO PREVENT COSTLY LEAKS.

I am installing a new kitchen faucet and have two problems. Number one the plastic flange njuts that hold the old faucet to the sink won't come off. I tried to loosen them with WD-40 and white vinegar. No...


First of all, you need a faucet wrench. It's about 12 inches long, has a t-handle on one end and jaws on the other -- this will grip the plastic nuts to remove them.

I'm not sure what is meant by breaking the seal. If the soldered fitting broke loose, the best approach is to cut the copper pipe off past the damage and solder a new fitting on it necessary for the new hose to screw onto it.

There are a lot of ways to solve this problem -- if you can't manage the soldering, we can discuss other options.

How to install supply lines for Grohe k4 faucet


I hope this helps.
Step11Turn off the water supply. You'll find a shut-off valve under your kitchen sinkmag-glass_10x10.gif. Once the water is turned off, open up the kitchen faucets to allow the water remaining in the pipes to drain way. Step2Catch the drips by placing a bucket under the hot water supply line, located on the left side of your sink. Even a minimum of water can cause a mess and be potentially damaging. Step3Use a wrench to remove the compression nut that secures the hot water supply line. Let the disconnected section fall into the bucket. Use the wrench to loosen and remove the nut at the other end of the line and remove it as well. Step4Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for the cold water supply line. Step5Replace the cold water supply line. Hand-tighten the nuts on both ends, then use the wrench to tighten the nuts completely. Repeat the process with the hot water supply line. Step6Turn on the water supply and test for leaks

Clarify application of straight ball valve 1/4 turn


The ballvalve is normally a compression type fitting and so would not normally require soldering, however you could use a threaded adaptor soldered to the copper supply line and then thread a 1/2" ball valve to that then reduce down to the correct thread to meet the tails from your new tap. Or alternativeley you can insert the valve in the supply line, and extend the pipe to nearer the sink to enable easier connection of the tap.

Kitchen faucet Remove


Start by turning off the water supply, either by shutting off the main water supply to your house (probably located close to your water meter), or by closing the shutoff valves on the water supply lines to your faucet. Then, open the tap to allow the water to drain out of the lines and remove any water pressure. Next, use your adjustable wrench and disconnect the hot and cold water supply lines running to the faucet. If you're going to replace the lines, disconnect them at the shutoff valve, but if you're going to reuse the existing lines, do your disconnects at the base of the faucet itself. ow it's time to actually remove that old faucet. Faucets are attached in one of two ways. Bottom mounted faucets are removed from the top of the sink. To remove a bottom mount faucet, you need to take off the faucet handles and escutcheon to get to the nuts holding the faucet. Once the nuts are exposed, use your wrench to take them off. Top mounted faucets, unfortunately, are held in place by nuts located on the underside of the sink. You'll need to get under the sink to remove them, and space may be at a premium. If you're lucky, you'll be able to use your slip joint or locking pliers to loosen the nuts. However, if pipes are in the way, you'll need to use a basin wrench (a wrench specially designed to work in tight spaces where you don't have room to use an ordinary wrench or pliers). Once you've removed the nuts holding the faucet, just lift it up off the sink. If there is some caulking holding the base to the sink, slide the blade of a utility knife carefully around the faucet base to cut it loose. You'll need to remove any old caulking or "grunge" that may have built up around the old faucet. You can get silicon remover at your home store, and a mixture of vinegar and water or an orange cleaner will remove the grunge.
