SOURCE: water trickles out of sprayer head on pull out faucet.

Hi crossroadsjm,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: soaked in vinegar water but did nothing. took off spray head from hose and the water stream is very small in diameter. only 1 year old faucet. could cartidge be bad or clogged? water pressure in rest of house is fine.

It is very possible that some debrie has come up in the water and is partially clogging the faucit. For this you would have to turn the water off and disassemble the parts clearing all the small passages, a bit of wire or paper clip works. Perhaps for a pro? If you like you may choose to utilize our Repair Directory.

SOURCE: Loss of pressure in kitchen faucet - Price Pfister

Your problem is a simple one.

  1. Turn off water to faucet.
  2. Place a towel(s) in the base of the sink(s) to prevent any parts from going down drain.
  3. Remove the handle to the faucet. (single handle only)
  4. If not a single handle then remove spout from faucet.
  5. If a single handle remove cap carefully and any loose parts.
  6. Gently turn spout side to side while lifting to remove.
  7. You will see a hole with a very small valve where the water comes out to the spout on the base of the faucet.

  1. Remove this valve (which is a backflow preventer) and replace.
  2. Reassemble and test.
Problem solved.

SOURCE: Sulfur smell from the Delta faucet

Your incoming water from the well is contamiated. A delta faucet will combine oxygen with the water and make the sulfer smell come out. It could also be iron bacteria causing the smell. Look in the back of your toilet tank and see if your have reddish or black stringy algae looking stuff growing in there. If you do, you have iron bacteria and it will smell.

SOURCE: We are trying to replace a Grohe kitchen pull out

The universal hose will not work on certain model faucets,best bet contact manufacturer and they may provide you a new hose at little or no cost if you tell them you will put a different brand faucet in.

Need to replace rubber on Grohe Ladylux Plus Pull out spray handle. How to get spray handle apart.


I bought DANCO "universal faucet pull-out spray hose - fits all facuet brands" from Lowe's, which came with all kind of adapter and the hose quality seems to be better than overpriced Grohe spray hose replacement (Grohe part # 46092). The only problem is that you may have to prepare a large rubber washer in order to the handspray (Grohe part#46298) as I don't see this large washer in the package but it is very important to fit in place to prevent water leakage. - Michael

I purchased the Danco 80701 "Repair Kit for Delta, Aquasource, and Glacier Bay Faucets with #70 Ball" so that I can repair a leak in my Delta kitchen faucet. The instructions on the package are...


Sounds like the old style center-control delta type faucet, rubber washers describe older type but still good. The rubber seats have holes in middle, supply water to the cylinder which diverts water to the spout, and has a seal over top of ball allowing stem for handle.

Think they are talking about flex-hose type faucet accessory getting clogged, Maybe: lift the flex-hose faucet housing off the center-control faucet body? Water to it runs directly from center-control faucet and if broken seat gets in narrow line could inhibit spray.

Kitchen faucet spout too has an O-ring under where it connects to the faucet body. Unscrew large nut where meets the faucet body unit (slip-joint pliers), once free of threads, spout should pull straight up, easy or slight tug. I use bent paper clip to remove old one trying to save it in one piece so as to get exact size (that's important) to replace, push on one side then other.

I'AM LOOKING FOR A DIAGRAM OF THE COOLING SYSTEM; SO I CAN DISCONNECT THE HEATER HOSE AND USE A WATER HOSE TO RUN THROUGH IT TO SEE IF ANY DEBRIS ARE TRAPPED BLOCKING WATER FLOW


This is how I flush the heater core...go to the garden department at Wal-Mart and get a 5/8 - 3/4" female garden hose connector similar to my picture...remove the upper heater core hose and connect your garden hose to the connector then to the heater hose and secure with a hose clamp. Remove the lower heaer core hose and point it to the gound, then turn on your faucet and run clean water thru it... b67bfc8.jpg

KitchenFaucet - high picthced noise when hot water runs


The hot water is expanding a little rubber o-ring and its allowing air to wistle through because it is not sealing right. Replace the rubber washer or o-ring that is on the hot side.
