How to fix a rocking faucet


Faucets secure to the sink in two general ways- With a nut that tightens (from under the sink) on the shaft of the faucet or some type of metal bracket the uses screws to clamp on the sink or counter top. If you look from under the sink you should be able to see which you have. If there is a large nut around the shaft of the faucet you can tighten this up but it is hard to reach. A tool is made for this it's called a basin wrench, it makes it easier to do this. If there is a screw or a pair of screws then a long screwdriver is all you need. get it good and tight but don't go so far as to chip the sink or countertop.

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

Since we fixed our dish washer, the water prssure in the kitchen faucet is very low. A friend told me to clean the filter. where is the filter, and what do I need to open in order to get to it?


filter screen is usually just under where the water comes out. Cover drain so any parts do not get lost down drain. Just unscrew it counter-clockwise to loosen it up. Remove screen and clean by flashing water in bathroom sink until screen holes are clear. then re-install and tighten in clock-wise direction. All done after you check that water comes out again.

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

The pull out faucet is loose, wobbly, won't stay attached.


Make sure that there is a weighted ball connected about halfway down the retracting hose. If not you need to go to a supply house and purchase one and its a simple install.However if there is one attached you can loosen the 2 screws and slide it up closer to faucett but not so far that you can't pull out the sprayer as far as you need. Also make sure nothing is obstructing it under the sink. bottles, cleaners, etc.
