Nice faucet. The cause of leak can be:

1. Leaking Hose
2. Loose handle
3. Worn out washer between handle and hose
4. O-rings inside the column
5. Loose water supply lines at the body connection

First make sure the handle is firmly screwed in into the hose socket with good washer between the handle and seat of the hose. If that connection leaks then it leaks inside the body of the faucet and down to your cabinet. 50% of time this is the problem.

Due to the age of the faucet I would also suspect the O-rings inside the column. When you install new O-rings than you have to apply the grease so you don't clip them while installing column collar.

Let me know how you did

Why is my grohe alira kitchen faucet loose on a granite counter


Probably a loose fixture nut under the counter behind the sink.
Yeah ya gotta pull out everything and crawl up into the cabinet on your back and see if the nut (right up at the granite, above the hot and cold inlet pipes) is loose. If it is THEN you'll need to tighten it. Wrench, slip-joint pliers or a basin wrench. (probably basin wrench which is a specialized tool made for reaching up into tight places)

The base of the faucet which fastens to the top of the granite is loose and moves around. Is there a nut under the faucet that tightens to keep it firm to the granite? How do I fix this?


yes there is, with a pair of slip joints you can tighten from underneath, it is above the supply line, the best thing to do is turn off the water, disconnect the supply line and tighten the nut, then reconnect the supply line and turn back on the water. Good Luck Tim

I have a brand new Europlus faucet with hardly any water flow. I had the first Euro faucet with good flow. Why is the water flow so low on a brand new faucet.


when you installed did any teflon tape or debris get inside? you can remove and reverse flush with hose and it may clear the blockage

Loose Grohe kitchen faucet


there are mounting plates underneath the counter which fasten the faucet to the counter.This unit will need a small allen wrench if memory serves me correctly...keep in mind that all moen faucets are lifetime guranteed and alot of folks do not take advantage of this amazing warranty which makes these the most desirable faucet on the market.however the need to tighten this faucet prob isnt a warranty replacement procedure but can be determined once mounting items and faucet is inspected...good luck
