SOURCE: Cold water only from single-arm shower faucet in master bathroom

Yes - This is an easy (though not widely known) diy fix! Remove the cover of the faucet handle (may pop off if crystal type or use a screwdriver to remove the screws) inside there is a scald guard safety mechanism - using a flathead screwdriver, turn the guard some the left. There should be a guide so that you do not turn the water up too hot. If there is not, you may need to consult a plumber or supplier in order to adjust the hot to a moderate temperature.

Hope this helps! ;)

Hi gmgknaus08..

Check your valves under the cabinet to make sure the valves are completly open.
If that does not solve your problem then you may have a kink in the waterline or dirt/debris in the line or valve.
After you shut off the water then you will disconnect the water line that is giving you a problem and put the disconnected end of the pipe in a glass,bucket, or some container and open the valve to see if you have a strong water flow, if you do not then the problem is probably in the valve.
If you have good pressure at the end of the pipe then your problem will be dirt/debris in the new faucet the plummer installed. You will have to disassemble the faucet that is giving the problem to get rid of the dirt/debris.

Just bought 4 moen Oxbridge bathroom sink faucets. Water pressure is very low compared to old faucets. Checked the aerator but no adjustment is available. New shower head is the same issue.


These days, you may find a disk with a small hole intended to restrict flow. It may be installed above the aerator. Check the flow with aerator removed.

Should be valves under your sink for the faucet. #1
Make sure they are opened up enough.
If either device is new, they should support this issue.
Old plumbing can also cause this. Build up in the lines.
They can only be replaced to fix. Some water heaters have adjustable valves, make sure if you have them they are opened as needed. Remember, too low flow can cause over heated water.

Rinnai r94ls seems to stop heating heating water to certain faucets


Check for crossover problem where cold water is getting into hot line and causing less flow on hot line that cuts off heater and reduces temp at faucet.

We just installed a new moen 4 inch centerset Lindley faucett with drain for our bathroom. The drain piece has 2 molded holes in it. We are experiencing leaks from this pipe. How are we supposed to fix...


Ok I asked for some more information, but let me give it a try to help you with what I have here.

The two holes are for water to drain out of the over flow of the sink. If you look at the sink on the front side you may have to feel but there is one hole or up to three little ones. They take off water when someone walks away with the faucet on and they it goes down the drain and not on the floor.

Now if the sink your putting this in is a steel sink that does not have an over flow it will leak and you need an other drain system that is made for a sink with no over flow.

Places like manufactored homes, boats, campers would be where you would find a sink that does not have a over flow. Now with the over flow out if the sink does is not about1 inch thick.

if not use try more putty

I have an American Standard single handle faucet in the bathroom.. When you open the faucet fully the flow rate is very small. The faucet was fine before. How do I adjust the faucet to so that the flow...


What is likely happening is a small piece of sediment has become lodged in either the mixing valve or in the aerator.

Begin with the easiest part first. The aerator is the threaded attachment from which the water comes out of the faucet. Remove the aerator from the faucet and run the tap without it installed. If the flow rate is good either clean or replace the aerator.

If this was not the problem then the solution becomes much trickier because the obstruction is likely in one of the lines coming into the faucet or in the body of the faucet called the mixing valve. This is where the hot and cold water mix inside the faucet.

Our next step is to create negative pressure inside the faucet in an attempt to remove the buildup restricting the flow.

If you don't have shut off valves under the sink you will need to shut off the water supply to the home, remove the faucet from the vanity/sink and perform the following procedure.

Shut the hot and cold water off underneath the sink and remove the supply lines at the shut off valves but leave them connected to the faucet. You will need to purchase two adapters for the aerator that will allow you to connect a garden hose from your closest water supply (kitchen sink) to the vanity faucet. You can find these at your local hardware store. You will also need a pail under the vanity to catch the water coming out of the vanity faucet supply lines. Connect the garden hose from an active water supply to the vanity faucet. With someones help have them turn the water supply on which will then run backwards through the vanity faucet and into the pail underneath the vanity. Be sure to open the vanity faucet taps to full so that water will run through the faucet. This should dislodge the obstruction.

chances are that you have a bad faucet that is drawing water from a cold water tap. You will need to have a helper turn on the hot water in that bathroom while you feel the pipes at the water heater and see if they are heating up. If they feel like there is no flow, the water is coming from somewhere and you will need to turn the shut-offs of at various sinks to target the problem faucet. If you find which cold water line is acting up, install a back-flow check valve so the water goes only one way, toward the faucet.

Very low pressure when turn on the hot water faucet in sink


Shut off the water supply and open your faucets, and apply air pressure (min. 30psi) to dislodge any blockage in the pipes.
