First shut off the main water supply. This is likely located close to your water meter where the main water supply enters your house. After shutting the water off, open a faucet on the lower level and let the water lines drain. Disconnect the water supply line running to the base of the fixture you will be working on. On some, this will just be a screw on connection, and on others it may be a soldered pipe. If it's soldered, use a hacksaw (or better yet, a pipe cutter) to cut the pipe in two places, about 2" down from the base of the fixture and also 6" to 10" further down the pipe. Use the reamer on the pipe cutter to remove any burrs on the copper pipes, and then clean them (with a piece of sandpaper or emery cloth) until they shine. Slide the compression nut from the shut off valve onto the pipe with the threads facing the open end. Then slide on the compression ring. Wrap the pipe with Teflon tape or spread plumbing joint compound on the end of the pipe, and then push the shutoff onto the end of the pipe. Slide the compression nut and ring up to the shut off valve and hand tighten the nut. Attach the compression fitting of the flexible supply tube to the other side of the shut off valve and hand tighten it as well. Attach the compression fitting on the supply tube to the base of the faucet and hand tighten it. Once all your compression fittings are attached and hand tightened, use an adjustable wrench to tighten them all firmly. Be careful you don't over tighten as this can bend the soft copper pipe out of round or damage a compression fitting. Turn the water back on and check for leaks. (Don't forget to open the shut off valve when you turn on the faucet.)

I just installed a Kohler Forte R10412-N-CP. Hot water flow is good. However, very low cold flow. What's wrong


First turn off the shut-off valves and remove the Forte faucet inlet hose from the cold water line. Then put a temporary inlet hose on that shut-off valve. Test how much water flows into a bucket when you open the valve. Assuming that you had good flow from the cold water shut-off valve through the supply hose, a trickle flow on one side suggests the cartridge plunger (mixing valve) or the inlet hose is blocked or damaged. Since this is a new unit, I'd recommend you replace the faucet. The best option may be to take it to the place where it was purchased (depending on the return policy).

I hope this helps and wish that I had better news for you.

Moen Kitchen tap 87787 water pressure is extremely low


Yes it is very common more so on hot side, the water stops or shutoffs can become plugged with hard water deposits and calcium build up. Shut off main water, unscrew supply lines from shut offs under sink to see if this is indeed the problem.

Plumber reversed the hot and cold lines during installation


Yes it can but I believe only the Pressure Balance Unit needs reversed.

1) Turn off water supply to unit
2) Remove handle/trim if installed
3) Remove cartridge by removing 3 screws holding cartridge
4) Remove retainer ring holding in P.B.U. in valve body by removing 3 screws
5) Remove Pressure Balance Unit, rotate 180ﹾ and reinsert
6) Reassemble in reverse order
