SOURCE: Slow and nonexistent water flow.

Start by removing the spray head from the hose. Pull the spray head out and with a channel lock pliers unthread connection between the spray head and hose. BE CAREFUL not to let the hose fall back down into the faucet. With the hose directed down toward the sink test for volume by turning on the faucet. If you get a nice volume the problem is in the spray head. This is usually the case. Put the spray head back on then remove the aerator. It's the screen where the water comes out of the spray head. Clean out the assembly ( 3-4 parts). Reassemble and test.

Good luck, Phil

SOURCE: how to adjust anti scald valve on american standard shower faucet

Remove the handle,and all the trim rings,and the cartridge cover. take a flat head screwdriver and use it to lift
up the red ring behind everything, this is the hot limit safety stop,
this just stops the handle from turning to full hot.

Once you have the red ring lifted up, notice the numbers and the pointer
on the ring, numbers are on the fixture,

O= hottest 7=cold

See what the ring pointer is set to now, and move it half, before you put this back together, just set the handle on the unit and run the water to see if its to hot or not enough. Once you have found what is the best setting, then replace all covers and trim, handle.

American Standard Edgewater Single handle pull out faucet. Hot water pressure trickles.


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.

Do I have to disconnect the water hoses under the sink when I turn the neck counter-clockwise? I am on my 2nd replacement faucet.


You do not have to disconnect the water hoses, but you do have to turn the water valves off before loosening any parts on the faucet.
