Question about American Standard 1340.225.002 Chrome Metering Centerset
Hi, the metered faucets I just installed are having a problem with sticking in the "on" possition. I have to actually take apart the handle and actuator assembly to get it to turn off. Is there a trick with lube, or mechanical, that you can suggest? have already adjusted the cycle times.
Metering faucets rely on water pressure running through extremely small pilot holes to close off the water supply. If the set was operating correctly and then developed this problem the most likely culprit is one of the pilot holes has become clogged leaving the fixture to run constantly. If the fixture never worked properly it may be defective. Uninstall it and return it to the place of purchase for a replacement fixture. If you don't believe the unit to be defective it will have to be taken apart and blown out with compressed air. Reassemble and test the fixture. It is best if you can get a schematic of the model you purchased so that you can see how it comes apart and goes together. This can help to avoid a lot of frustration.
