Low water flow


I have a Pricepfister 531 series pull out faucet with very low out put.
How can I get more water out. it has the same flow from hot or cold.
I took off the spray head and there is a very low flow also.

Low water flow


Pretty good chance your pull out hose is full of little pieces of minerals, or deteriorating dip tube.
First disconnect supply lines from the stop valves and check for flow at the valve. That will tell you if the problem is before or after the valve
