It sprays fine but off the spray thair is no presuser . we replaced the water lines in the house we have good preasure though out our home jest not at the kitchen sink


One of the greatest things about Franke Faucets is that they have a lifetime guarantee. If you recently changed the waterlines in the home then more than likely when the water was turned back on or lines pressurized the settlement in the water main (Outside of your home) was activated and clogged the aerator. Most aerators simply turn counter clockwise (With the water off) after remooving the aerator simply clean and dislodge any particles in another sink. As for the pull out, some models have an inline screen located between the hose and the faucet handle. Simpy remove the handheld faucet (With the water off) and clean the screen.

Most sink faucets will have an areator screen ot a spray attachment at the exit of the faucet. These normally screw in and should be easily removed. You may need to use a cloth to protect the finish and use a pair of channel lock pliers if the threads are stubborn.

Remove and clean the areator screen and allow the water to run freely to allow for removal of any sediment or blockage in the line. The flow should give you an indication if there is any blockage remaining in the line.

Replace the aerator. This will have to be repeated for each faucet.

If the main line was flushed in the house; this may have already been done. If not the flushing process may have broke material free which is clogging the aerators.

After a recent water main break, our Delta Model 473 kitchen faucet now has very low water pressure. It also continues to flow for a few seconds after turning it off. I tried unscrewing the screen and...


Check the screen at the hose connection under the sink. Check the hoses for any large debris in them. Verify that the water pressure coming from the water outlets under the sink is good. There is obviously a restriction somewhere...you just need to locate it.

We began replaceing our galvanized pipes. Since


The problem is that when you disturb the galv. pipes, the gunk inside breaks loose, and travels to the faucets, gets stuck, and limits the volume of water that comes out.
If possible open the lines at the service valves, and force water through the spigot to fluch out the faucet. The service value could also be partially clogged, keep that in mind

Water pressure very low


Sounds like the cartridge needs to be cleaned or replaced. May be clogged or faulty. This requires turning off water under the sink and pretty much taking the faucet apart.

Low water flow from kitchen faucet


Their is likely rust build up behind the valve connections to the hot and possibly cold water supply lines. Turn the water off to the house relieve the pressure and remove both valves. Once removed use a screwdriver to break up the rust. With a small bucket under both lines turn the water main back on slightly to clear rust. Replace both valves with new ones.

Loss of pressure in kitchen faucet - Price Pfister


Your problem is a simple one.

  1. Turn off water to faucet.
  2. Place a towel(s) in the base of the sink(s) to prevent any parts from going down drain.
  3. Remove the handle to the faucet. (single handle only)
  4. If not a single handle then remove spout from faucet.
  5. If a single handle remove cap carefully and any loose parts.
  6. Gently turn spout side to side while lifting to remove.
  7. You will see a hole with a very small valve where the water comes out to the spout on the base of the faucet.

  1. Remove this valve (which is a backflow preventer) and replace.
  2. Reassemble and test.
Problem solved.
