I have dirt in a kitchen eurostream single handle tap. Beyond taking the tap itself off how do I disassemble? Unscrew the dome looking piece 1st, or unscrew the brass looking ring I see around it?

SOURCE: leaking single lever kitchen tap

on most of the single handle faucets there is an erasure like button ( may have a hot and cold blue and red indicator or be silver ) usually located right under the faucet arm on the manifold chrome sleeve or back behind the arm or it could have a large ring nut over the doam of the lever take your hand and feel the area that covers the area where the spout arm swivels and feel for the button or take your fingers and fel the to of the lever doam

if you find the button just take a sharp screw driver( be sure to plug the drain holes and turn hot and cold water off under sink) pry the button off and use a hex wrench and loosten

if no button then there has to be a large nut on top you may seee two grooves oppsoite each other wheich would mean a special tool

use an adjustable wrench (put cloth ofer chrome to protect and turn counter clock wise( the ring nut will not be very thick

after removing you should be able to replace the cartridge

good luck

How do I unscrew the dome under the handle on a 7065 Vestige Single Handle Kitchen Faucet


The decorative dome under the handle is snapped on so carefully wiggle and pull and it should come off.

Moen annabelle faucet handle fell off


1st put the DOME cap on by rotating it 180 degrees, to go OVER the white plastic gasket, then press on. Then you have to get that plastic square knob inside the dome, in a downward postition, thus TURNING the WATER ON, to work the handle back in place. Put the set screw on with an (tiny) allen stick wrenchy thingy.

I ave this ez-conx connector that doesn't connect. It says It should click to indicate a proper connection, but not matter how hard I push it doesn't stay in place.


It's pretty easy when you find how to do it... I found that video that visually helped me... (http://eurostream.ca/FR/ez_conx_supplyline.asp) if you look into that "easy connector" you'll see a small piece of transparent plastic that the copper can fit into it... but that piece should be removed from manufacturer because it is not needed. So, you have to remove the piece of plastic using a little knife if you want to push it like on the video. As soon as you remove that and you push it enough, you will finally heard that little "click"... So that means that it is on place.

Good luck

I have an american standard kitchen faucet, when the handle is half open I get a leak, at home depot where I bought it two years ago, they told me I need to take it apart to see which kit will repair...


The single handled faucets have a valve cartridge which needs to be replaced when it leaks. Disassemble the handle to find the valve inside. Take the valve to the hardware store to be sure you get the right one and reassemble. To disassemble, pop the cap off the lever, unscrew the single screw, then use slip-joint pliers to loosen the retainer nut. lift the cartridge out with pliers taking note of the direction of the notch at the top of the stem. Be sure to reassemble with the notch facing in the same direction. You should replace and lubricate the O-rings when you change the valve cartridge.
Since you have the numbers for that particular faucet, you might want to call around to find the cartridge first. Different models have different valves, so be sure yours is correct.

The pressure in my Delta faucet is suddenly low. The pressure throughout the rest of the house is fine. What is wrong? I replaced several pieces of the faucet but nothing worked.


Take the hoses off on the bottom of the faucet and blow air back through the faucet. Dirt can plug up the small openings right where the water enters the faucet. By the way I hope you checked the areator on the end of the spout, Dirt can plug that up also.

Kitchen taps drip and leak.I do not want to replace with new but would like to sort these problems.


dependent on the type of faucet, you need to replace (a) the washers, (b.) the spring and seals or (c.) the gasket. They all serve the same purpose. 1. turn off the water supply to the faucet. 2. double handle? (a)remove the center cap (b) then remove the screw holding the handle down (c)next unscrew the valve stem retaining nut (normally it is the one right above the faucet body). (d) pull the valve stem out, if there is a small rubber piece held down by screw remove the screw, replace the washer. if there is a rubber gasket wrapped around the stem, remove and replace it, if nothing is on the stem look into the faucet body you should see 1 or 2 small rubber pieces these are the seals the springs are right below the seals. Remove and replace springs and seals. 3. single handle? remove the handle retaining screw, normally covered by hot/cold indicator symbol, unscrew valve stem retaining nut, pull the valve stem and replace either the gasket or springs and seals.
