Hi Mackenzey,

Generally, the aerators screw into the faucet. You have to unscrew the piece that is on there now. To do this, use slip-joint pliers. Be sure to wrap something around the piece first or you'll scratch the finish.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

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.

How do you remove the aerator housing from the Price Pfister hanover double handle bathroom sink faucet


most aerators are screwed into the faucet

IF you use a pair of multigrips with clothe folded in the jaws , you can apply gentle pressure and turn it out

too much pressure and you will distort the aerator so be gentle with it

How to remove the aerator to clean screen


The aerator is screwed into the faucet assembly. Sometimes lime deposits make this hard to unscrew so you may need large pliers with a lot of tape to protect the finish from scratches.
- remember, left-loosy/righty tighty, but it's upside down, so clockwise to loosen, when viewed from above the faucet.

I have a Jado bathroom faucet that has a restriction in it. Is there a screen that I need to clean?


It will have an aerator on the end of the faucet that has a screen. Sometimes these can be removed by hand carefully unscrewing. Others require an aerator removal tool (cheap). Either way, remove the aerator taking care not to allow it to separate into parts. Once removed, you can then dis-assemble noting the order in which you did so. Clean screens and re-assemble.

Water will not flow through the bathroom faucet


It probably is a clogged aerator. The small piece, right where the water comes out, unscrews. There is a screen behind it the often collects dirt and minerals. Clean that off and try it again

We have a new Price Pfister 49 Series bathroom faucet set with two handles. Even with the hot water tap open full the water just dribbles out


If you have full pressure on the cold water side and low pressure on the hot side then you well need to remove and clean or replace the cartridge for the hot side. If you have low water pressure on both sides try removing the aerator and cleaning it.
If you need to replace the cartridge on the hot side do both sides while you at it.
Whenever you work on any faucet before you turn the water on remove the aerator and run the water for a few seconds then replace the aerator.

Ever since my Moen kitchen faucet (Model CA87010) was installed the water is full of foam. Air? How to fix?


There may be construction debris or residue partly blocking the aerator. Have you unscrewed the end and cleaned it out? Sometimes the fellow may not have assembled the aerator in the right order and a simple rearranging of parts will clear it up.

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.

How To Connect Sinks Drain


No matter what type of sink you purchase, the drain and water-supply connections are generally installed in the same way. Hand-tighten a female adapter onto the drain stub-out at the wall. Slide slip nuts onto the drain arm and the sink's tailpiece. Fit a P-trap in place and tighten the slip nuts by hand. Connect flexible water-supply tubes onto the faucet's tailpieces, and route them to the shut-off valves. Tighten coupling nuts with an adjustable wrench. Remove the faucet aerator, turn on the water, check for leaks at the shutoff valves, and then turn on the faucet to check for leaks in the drain assembly. Replace the aerator.
