How do you remove the water restrictor from a GIAGNI Kitchen Faucet, Fresco Model PD180-SS?


If this is a kitch faucet with the spout/sprayer combo, then there are two possible locations. One location is at the ends of the supply tubes with 1/2" npt threaded ends where they connect to the flex supplies from your two valves under the sink. Turn the water off and disconnect the supply nuts. The flo-checks can often be removed using needlenose pliers.

The other possible location is at the spout itself, but this type may not be removable without damaging the seal to the aerator. Remove the aerator, and there is probably a light spring in there. If you remove the flo-check from beneath the spring, tha aerator may not seat properly and will leak. Good luck.

Replace 940-190 aerator


It sounds like either your aerator is clogged, or someone has removed the metal screens to use for the combustion of herbal products. If nothing is missing from the aerator, it is probably clogged with white scale. Simply take a baggie filled with vinegar and place it over the aerator fastening it in place with a rubber band. After a couple of hours, remove and scrub with old toothbrush. If this doesn't work, remove the aerator and replace it. It screws right off.

How do I remove the aerator?


aerator always screw off typically counter clock wise (lefty loosy), but remember the aerator is "upside-down" as you look at it on the faucet arm. There are two types, male threaded and female threaded. Both unscrew from the faucet arm the same. There are at least four different sizes so take the old you with you when you go to replace it. Most times the threads are gunked up by lime and hard water deposits which means a pair of pliers or channel locks along with gentle rotation of the aerator cap will be needed to loosen the threads. Be aware that a washer may tend to stick in the faucet arm opening after you remove the aerator. Stick your pinky into the faucet spout opening and fell if there is a black rubber washer. Replace with a new one in reverse.

Is there a water restricter in this faucet


without manufacturer name and model, the best answer is a guess. most faucets have aerators which can limit the GPM (gallons per minute flow rate)of a faucet. with relative ease an aerator can be removed, disabled, and reinstalled to permit free flow from the faucet without making too much of a mess.

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.

I installed Series 26 Avalon faucet. The water flow rate is very slow. All fittings to the faucet are new. Could the problem be a faulty valve ?


Remove and clean the Price Pfister aerator. Turn the water on after you remove the aerator and check the flow-rate. Many new Lavatory and kitchen faucets are now equipped with Eco friendly water saver aerators. if the flow is normal without the aerator, the faucet is OK. if you want more water flow from your lavatory faucet, you will need to buy one of the old style high flow aerators from your hardware store. If you remove the aerator and still get low pressure from both hot and cold faucets, you may need to replace the faucet. Call the Price Pfister warranty phone number that came with your faucet.
