Question about American Standard Plumbing
First faucet pressure was low both hot and cold. Then next day water pressure almost nil. After following steps to fix the problem couldnt get working. Company sent second one. Water pressure good on cold but hot water pressure next to nothing. We checked the areator it was fine. Flushed the pipes. Water supply is fine. My father removed cartridge. Ran the water. Cold water came out where the cartridge was taken out. But the hot trickled out. He turned off water and disconnected hoses blew are through. Air would go through the side where the cold water would go through. Tried on the hose for the hot.Barely any air on that side. So seems like the problem is not in the hoses???
Mixing valve and ceramic washers are defective. American Standard is not what it used to be. Parts are substandard and imported from china. Get yourself a Glacier Bay, and contact American Standard and demand your money back or a credit.

SOURCE: no hot water pressure
These types faucets have a what is called an anti scald valve build into them, it is required by law, it is either defective or out of adjustment, contact a local hardware store for more detailed info.
