Question about Blanco Classic Single Handle Faucet with Pull-Out Spray ....

1 Answer

I have a Blancoharvest 157-080 single handle faucet. The water flow is severly slowed and at times stops entirely. I've disconnected the pull out handle and the water flow from the hoses seems fine. I've cleaned the aerator screen but when I reattach everything the water flow will be ok for a few minutes and then will stop or slow once again. Any suggestions

Just installed a Jado Basil Single-Handle Pull-Down Sprayer Kitchen Faucet and the water flow is incredibly slow! Removed the check valve from the sprayer and it didn't help. Any other suggestions? Flow is...


The specs say that there are two check valves but the diagram does not show them. Take the weight off the hose and see if it is causing the restriction. If it is not, what is the water pressure in the house? The 2.2 GPM is the maximum flow rate.

Moen single handle pull out kitchen faucet is clogged


There are flow checks in either the hot and cold supply lines, or there is one on the hose. It sounds like it is failing. If it's an older model, then the flo checks will be located right at the end of the two copper tubes coming out of the faucet, and can be removed using needle nose pliers. If it's a newer model, then the check is in the hose and the hose will need to be replaced.

Heater takes more than 1 minute to get water to kit faucet , then temp fluctuates


1) Guesses: Sounds like a bad single-handled faucet cartridge, or low water flow at faucet, or clogged water filter.
Replace faucet cartridge, clean the aerator, and/or clean sediment out of pipes below sink, and clean water filter at tankless unit each month.

2) For exact measure of problem:
Typical faucet can have 2 gallon per minute flow rate.
2 gpm flow rate means faucet fills 1 gallon container in 30 seconds. Test faucet using 1 gallon container and a cooking timer to get flow rate.
Clean aerator to improve flow rate. Compare kitchen flow rate with other faucets in home.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Low-hot-water-pressure.html

Most homes have 1/2" diameter pipe running to kitchen faucet.
100 feet of 1/2" diameter pipe holds 1.2 gallons of water. This assumes no sediment build-up inside pipes.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html

Assuming only hot is turned on: If faucet is 100 feet away from water heater, and pipe diameter is unobstructed 1/2" diameter, and faucet has 2 gallon per minute water flow, then hot water should arrive in 36 seconds.
50 feet away, and hot water should arrive in 18 seconds.

If kitchen has single handled faucet, and the handle is raised in the middle, then equal amounts of hot and cold water are drawn at same time. This doubles amount of time for hot water to arrive.

If single handle faucet has a bad cartridge, then faucet can have crossover.
Crossover means that cold water can enter the faucet even if faucet is turned to hot.
Bad single-handled faucet cartridge can delay or stop the arrival of hot water.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Crossover.html

Tankless require maintenance including cleaning combustion parts yearly, de-lime heat exchanger frequently, and clean water filter each month.

I have a Delta Tub/Spout Pull Down Diverter that has a pretty persistent drip. The HOT and COLD handles are turned off and seem to be as tight as they can be. After doing some research online I believe...


If your Delta RP17453 Pull-Down Diverter Tub Spout stops dripping after 5 minutes, your ok. If it never stops dripping, you need to replace delta faucet cartridge(s) behind the handle(s). This is were the water turns on and off and stops the water flow to the tub spout.

Delta faucets are some of the easiest to repair, and parts are usually available at any hardware store or home center. If you have a two handle faucet, replace both delta seats and springs and stems. If you have a single handle Delta faucet, replace the entire cartridge.

Re: single handle lav. Ashfield: cold water flow is fine; hot water flow severly restricted. Have disconnected supply tube and flow is fine into a bucket so it is not a problem with valve or supply...


I have the same problem with my Ashfield faucet.
I am going to contact Price Pfister and try to get a new 'cartridge'.

On another note, my Ashfield towel rings are also broken. The connection where the two pieces meet is so weak it cannot handle daily use. I am going to bring this up with Pfister as well.

It doesn't seem like Price Pfister has very good products.

We have a newly installed Delta single-handle shower faucet and cannot figure out HOW to get a warm water mix. No matter where we turn the handle, we get different temperatures of "cold."


That is a graduated water mixer valve, and it sometimes has a little white water restrictor blocking flow from your hot water port. See if that was left in by removing the handle with all water shut off to the valve and reattach then try again. This can also happen if you have a tankless water heater because pressure controls heat. Typically a Tankless water heater system will require little, to no cold water to your bathtub valve because of the heavy water flow at the tap. Remember, flow equals temperature. Less flow = more heat, more flow = less heat.

MOST LIKELY YOU HAVE A CLOG AT THE SEAT ON THE INSIDE OF THE FAUCET, TYPICALLY SAND, PEBBLES, OR PIPE SEALANT. TURN THE WATER OFF, UN-SCREW THE HANDLE, REMOVE THE SET SCREW LOCATED INSIDE THE HANDLE BODY, PULL THE HANDLE BODY UP, LOOSEN THE NUT, REMOVE THE SEATS AND STEM AND UN-CLOG THEM.

No water flow. just stopped completely.


Some times just jigle handle rapidly on and off detach pull down faucet from hose chec for clogs or debrie on screen, try for water with still detached. Turn valves to off position under the sink, then turn them on slowly to see if they are working. if so witch is very likely, try to blow back through the faucet hose with the handle on, to try and break up the clog.

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.
