We live in a house built in early 60's. Re; Plumbing to kitchen sink and dishwasher. On vary rare occasion the sink faucet will have decent water pressure. We have changed the water faucet with a Moen. As...


if this is the only place in the home where water pressure is a problem then the lines may very well be the issue. if you have low pressure throughout the home then there may be a problem with the main water supply in the home. if the lines are galvanized pipe then they may be restricted due to rust or other deposits forming on the inside of the pipe. unless you are good at plumbing then i would suggest having a professional come out and assess the condition of the lines.

Can't keep single hole faucet from coming loose


One method that I have had good results with is to shut off water supply to faucet and remove supply lines then remove faucet from sink. Clean surface of sink and faucet base and dry completely. Get a roll of double sided carpet tape andput a couple of layers on sink covering slightly larger area then faucet base.use rubber or plastic gasket that came with your faucet and put another ptece of tape on bottom side.Put your faucet back in and tighten retaining nut as tight as you can. You can trim excess tape from around faucet base with exacto or utility knife. Hope this helps you. Have a good new year and thank you.

Sour smelling/ tasting water from bathroom faucet when not used for several hours. Smells like traces in water bottles, which I can bleach or wash in dishwasher. How do I clean possible bacteria from a...


Assuming the problem is right there at the faucet, and not further upstream (which you could verify by taking a little water from the tub faucet), perhaps you could try this--- turn off the water supply then remove the flexible water supply lines from the faucet underneath the sink. These are usually not too hard to remove from the faucet with a basin wrench (less than $10). If it's easy, remove the other end of the flexible water supply lines too. Maybe you should replace these. Otherwise, get the water out of those flexible line, then put some bleach into them. Reconnect to the faucet. Leave the faucet turned off, and turn the water supply back on. Then very slightly turn on the faucet to allow the air out, then turn it off. Leave the bleach to soak for a while (maybe 30 minutes) then flush plenty of water through it. If the smell comes back, there is probably something organic stuck in the faucet and you will have to disassemble or replace it. Good luck.

Solaris Model #06544860 leaking under the sink. How do I remove and how do I figure out exactly what is leaking?


The first thing I would do is to locate source of the leak. Look carefully at faucet when it is on and see if you have any water leaking from areator and running back down the underside of spout and leaking around base of faucet, also see if you have any leaks around handle. If the leak is from the areator you can just replace it and not have to remove the faucet. when you check under sink on faucet supply lines make sure they aren't leaking at that point. I would use paper towels or rags to wipe everything dry under faucet and let it set for 1/2 hour then check again. If it.s still dry run some water and use both hot and cold water seperatly,checking underside in between. If you determine that leak is coming from top side and leaking thru. Shut off water supply valves if available if not shut off supply to house, make sure water is off before proceeding. Disconnect supply lines from faucet,Remove retaing nuts on either side of base,and remove washers. Remove faucet and check for any obvious faults. If you think it was leaking around base get a small tub of plumbers putty. Most hardware stores stock it. Remove a golf ball sized portion or larger and knead in your hands until it is warm and pliable. Press into place in faucet base. Continue doing this until it's full. Reinstall plastic or rubber base gasket and put faucet back in place Put washers and retaing nuts back on a tighten till snug. Center faucet where you want it and tighten securely. Scrape off excess putty with knife point and wipe with paper towels till clean. Hook up supply lines and turn water back on. Check for leaks and good luck. Thank you

We just installed a Moen Banbury songle handle faucet, and we have very little water pressue. The pressure in the rest of the house is fine, and we cleaned out the aireator filter. Any ideas?


Hi jaryan--
Sometimes when you valve off a water supply, particles of rust or mineral deposits break free and travel along down the pipe when the water comes back on, only to stop when they reach a small opening. In this case, it could be the faucet's supply line.

You already cleaned the aerator, which would have been my first suggestion. The next step is to visually inspect the supply lines for the faucet. Are any of them kinked or twisted? If they look good, the next step is to valve off the water at the shutoff valves closest to the faucet-- they should be on the plumbing under the sink.

Next, disconnect the supply lines to the faucet at the point closest to the faucet. Using a bucket, aim each supply line, one at a time, into the bucket and slowly valve on the water. How is the water pressure? Do any rust particles come out? Flush each line until the water runs clean and strong. Before you reattach the supply lines, use a flashlight to check the hardpiping on the faucet itself and visually check for any obstructions. Remove any suspected blockages manually.

Reconnect the supply lines to your faucet and check its pressure again. If the faucet's pressure is still low, you may have a clog in the faucet's interior mechanism.
--Hope this helps

Kitchen Faucet 6310 020 White - HOT WATER SIDE NOT WORKING


The faucet cartridge is more then likely blocked and the faucet will have to be disassembled in order to unblock it.
While it is disassembled you should slowly turn on the water lines to make sure the water ways in the faucet are clear. And thoroughly check the cartridge for damage. Replace if necessary.
Replacement Cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or Big Box Stores such as Lowes or the like.

I have to connect a 'Y' piece connector to my dishwasher as there is currently no cold water getting to it. How do i go about doing this?


If I'm not mistaken only hot water goes to the dishwasher. What you have is a valve with two outlets usually 1/4 or 3/8 one goes to supply side of sink faucet and other to the supply line of the dishwasher. This valve connects to the hot water supply line of the house. The stub outs should be close to the D/W. If you want to use cold water then you will have to connect this valve to the cold water supply and then connect one side to the dishwasher and the other to the the cold side of sink faucet. Also I believe that dishwashers need the water to be at a certain temperature +/- 150 degrees.
Home Depot/Lowes sell the valves fairly cheap. Hope this helps.
