Question about Price Pfister Marielle Kitchen Faucet with Matching Spray and Soap ...

1 Answer

The diverter spray worked well for a couple of weeks. Now there is little pressure. There is a sharp, water-hammer like click when I shut it off as the main faucet engages. I've opened up the diverter valve at the end of the faucet, but no noticeable build-up or blockage. What now?

Hello,
There is some kind of dirt in there somewhere... it can be very good at hiding...
The best thing I have found to do is to take everything apart...spout, valves at handles, and hoses to valves. Blow compressed high pressure sire through every passage way and you will fix the problem. Time consuming yes, but the alternative is replacement. Teflon tape can make a mess of thing AND be hard to get out sometimes, becareful if you are using it or have used it...

I have water hammer when using shower only


Your Delta faucet is open and close the valve very quick. This will produce back pressure on pipes. You need an anti water hammer / back pressure suppressor to avoid this problem. You can find it in local market.

That is called 'water hammer' and is usually coming from an old fashioned stop valve. The stem with the washer is bouncing up and down.

Water hammer - Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_hammer
A water hammer commonly occurs when a valve closes suddenly at an end of a pipeline system, and a pressure wave propagates in the pipe. It is also called hydraulic shock. This pressure wave can cause major problems, from noise and vibration to pipe collapse. ‎Hydraulic ram · ‎Nikolay Yegorovich Zhukovsky · ‎Surge tank

Remove spay head from the end of the sprayer hose and turn the water on. If you have good pressure without the head, call Delta and ask for a new spray head. If you still have low water pressure without the spray head attached, call Delta and ask for a new ceramic disc cartridge free.

No water flow in kitchen sink


Sorry to say, you will need to replace that faucet, and also when you are shopping for a replacement, inquire about a rosette to cover the hole left by the voided sprayer.
Good luck...

Faucet/sprayer coordination


If you have a Delta faucet your diverter may need to be replaced. The diveter is located under the spout (see diagram)(this is not your faucet but works the same)

Here are the instructions:

  1. Turn off water to faucet.
  2. Remove handle.
  3. Remove top cap.
  4. Turning spout back and forth gently lift and remove.
  5. Remove and replace diverter.
Hope this helps and please remember to rate this!

Low Water Pressure in Kitchen Faucet


Ihad the same problem. It is not the screen. What you need to do is get a spray diverter the old one disintergated and is blocking the flow. You have to take the collar off and underneath is the diverter. This is after you take the ball and rings out.
