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.

We have a Grohe faucet similar to the Concetto. It single hole mount. Recently, it became loose and no matter how much I've tried to tighten it with a rod/nut/washer underneath, it will not tighten. ...


looks like you'll have to remove it and examine it. Brass is a soft metal, I hope you've not stripped out the threads, Grohe is an expensive faucet. i fall else fails and the hreads are stripped out, I might try a tough adhesive caulk like a 3M 5200 marine grade. Apply liberally from the bottom. let it set firmly. Perhaps tape a piece of cardboard over the hole in the countertop from the bottom. this would keep the caulking from falling out before it sets. unconventional, but something to try before buying another $200 faucet. what have you to loose?

The base keeps coming boose. i keep tightening and


If you just need to keep the nut from coming loose, try LocTite Blue (assuming metal thread and nut). You should be able to buy it at the local hardware store.

I had the same problem with a slightly different Price Pfister model sink. My problem was primarily because the sink basin was thin and not "beefy" enough to support the faucet. The whole thing would flex because the metal was thin and the nut would come loose.

Using wood for reinforcement down there is a bad idea (it would get wet and rot). So, plastic was the way to go.

I bought an inexpensive piece of plexiglass/lexan at the local home improvement store. A cheap plastic cutting board would work well too.

I cut a rectangle that was a couple inches wider than the the faucet holes and that would fit underneath the sink basin where the holes for the faucet were.

I marked the holes and cut them with a hole saw (Go slow, the heat from the hole saw will melt the plexi!). Cutting slightly oversize makes everything fit easier.

I put my new "reinforcing washer" in place and tightened everything down. The nut snugs up nicely against the plastic and after four months: no more flex, no more nut loosening.

How to insert bearing washer on moen single handle kitchen faucet


Hi,
I have the exact same problem! The gray plastic washer has popped out from between the plate and the brass groove below the washer! I can't for the life of me get it back under there. Because it's sitting too high, the handle doesn't fit and the metal plate is loose.
Please help!

Removal of single hole kithcen faucet.


There is a bracket that slides between the threaded shaft and the bottom of the sink. There is usually a nut which is tightened up against this bracket. When this nut is loosened, the bracket will slide out. Of course, you first have to unfasten the two water supply lines. Once the bracket is removed, the two water lines which are made into the faucet are gently bent and the whole thing is removed from the top of the sink. Hope this helps.

Loss of pressure in kitchen faucet - Price Pfister


Your problem is a simple one.

  1. Turn off water to faucet.
  2. Place a towel(s) in the base of the sink(s) to prevent any parts from going down drain.
  3. Remove the handle to the faucet. (single handle only)
  4. If not a single handle then remove spout from faucet.
  5. If a single handle remove cap carefully and any loose parts.
  6. Gently turn spout side to side while lifting to remove.
  7. You will see a hole with a very small valve where the water comes out to the spout on the base of the faucet.

  1. Remove this valve (which is a backflow preventer) and replace.
  2. Reassemble and test.
Problem solved.
