Question about Opella OMEGA ROMAN TUB SPOUT - 500.658.120 - Gold

1 Answer

I have low hot water pressure on new Roman tub faucets. The cold has lots of pressure. I removed the aerator. before turning on the water so I would not get crud in the screen. The pressure is better when I first turn it on but still really poor and then it gets worse after 5 seconds, Any idea what the problem could be?

There are two possible problems:

1) The crud you don't want in aerator can get stuck in elbows and shut-off valves.

2) Crossover. If single-handled faucet has bad cartridge, or check valve is bad, these things can cause hot water not to flow.
Generally however if the pressure is still good, the issue is most likely #1 above.

Set screw is stuck. Any suggestions on how to remove it to replace the roman tub faucet?


to replace the roman tub faucet you have to expose the faucet under the deck of the tub. Most of the time builders do not install a door to do repairs. So expose the underside of the deck of the tub, turn off the main water outside then cut the water pipe for the hot and cold water with a tube cutter. At this point take a sawall and place the blade so the side of the blade touches the bottom side of the deck.
and cut all the way though the body of the stem.

Do all three and your done with the hard part. Install your new faucet and enjoy.

Hope I was help to you Rich

Just put in a new moen kitchen faucet, why does it have hardly any water pressue?


You might have a clogged aerator screen. Remove the aerator from the faucet and see if the flow is normal. You can rinse the aerator off if it's clogged. It's also possible the stops (shutoff valves) aren't open all the way. Sometimes, if they're old, they don't turn on fully again after you shut them off to put in the new faucet. If you still have low pressure after removing the aerator, you may need to replace the valves.

I don't know if the instructions mentioned it, but it's good practice to remove the aerator and run a faucet to flush the water line after installing it. There's usually a lot of debris that comes through at first. That's usually why you'll have low pressure in a new faucet.

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.

I installed Series 26 Avalon faucet. The water flow rate is very slow. All fittings to the faucet are new. Could the problem be a faulty valve ?


Remove and clean the Price Pfister aerator. Turn the water on after you remove the aerator and check the flow-rate. Many new Lavatory and kitchen faucets are now equipped with Eco friendly water saver aerators. if the flow is normal without the aerator, the faucet is OK. if you want more water flow from your lavatory faucet, you will need to buy one of the old style high flow aerators from your hardware store. If you remove the aerator and still get low pressure from both hot and cold faucets, you may need to replace the faucet. Call the Price Pfister warranty phone number that came with your faucet.

I have a brand new faucet not getting any water pressure? Water Pressure was fine before putting new faucet in. How do i troubleshoot this problem and get my bathroom sink running properly again?


It is very common when you first install any faucet, for the aerator on the very end of the faucet (where the water comes out into the sink) to plug up with rust or sediment. Because you had to turn off water supply, it churns up this sediment in pipes. It initially plugs up the filter/screen in aerator. Just unscrew the end & flush it out with water. Then reattach.

Hi just moved in new home love it but the water pressure in kitchen is very low but the two baths i have the water pressure is fine can you help me please


One thing you could try is to remove the aerator at the end of the spout on the faucet, Turn water on and see if pressure is any better. If so the aerator is got something in it restricting the flow.
You also can remove the dime shaped flat in the aerator to increase water flow. It looks like a dime with a hole about 1/8" in center to restrict the flow to about 1.6 gpm. Remove it and reinstall aerator and check water flow

Most of the times when cold and hot side of faucet.It would be the first thin to check being you have good water pressure at other faucets. They catch debris and the flow slows down from the faucet's. Check out supply lines and faucet for a blockage if this doesn't take care of the problem.

Check out this web sire for a parts breakdown of parts in faucet. Check out installation and rough in sheet for information on faucet below.
