Thats a check valve you should have one installed to protect your drinking water if you leave the spray in the sink basin.

A - why would you leave the sprayer in the basin? B - the pull back on the thing prevents the sprayer or even being able to sit in the basin, it pulls it back up into the faucet. C - my previous faucet for the past 10 years didn't have one at all and I'm still alive. In fact I'm fairly sure none of the faucets I grew up with for the past 33 years ever had one.

Re: Glacier bay all in one sink faucet low pressure -- aerator clean


ohyeahthatchick thanks for that info.........who would think to look in there 1st ? it helped a bit but its nothing like it was.......its almost usable now ........the flow/pressure @ that spot was so ridiculous that you had to turn it on only partially or else it would splash everywhere.........Its a brand new glacier bay pull down spay sink faucet.......it sounds crazy but I had the same exact issue with a GB shower diverter......did remodel.....had to rip out the wall to change the damn thing......I had thought it was just a defective valve housing after replacing the cartrige....home depot gladly let me switch it......but still NFG so I replaced the whole diverter .......& still no good... it was simply a "bad model".....a "watersense" compliant government conspiracy bull**** model.......the actual innards were just too small......& I mean ....in no way could you use it to shower .....if u did u would use more water in the long run cuz it would take 3 hours to get clean....& the pressure at that location was great with the old style valves.........so i changed it out for a delta ......& its ok .....about 75% of what it can be......but defiantly usable......so they actually make them nowadays so that you cant just remove constrictors and/or anything else(which was always the 1st thing I'd do)........the funny thing is that, I bet most of the ppl that come up with these compliance ideas live in old mansions with 5gal per flush plumbing........so in conclusion apparently its the govt's job to control how much water we need to flush a dump & wash etc......just thought I'd share

Re: Glacier bay all in one sink faucet low pressure -- aerator clean


Thanks SO much for this information. We just installed the sink in April and I've been looking for the flow restrictor(s) ever since. While I believe firmly in conservation (and I don't think strict regulations in the midst of profound drought conditions, especially in SoCal, are "nanny state" indicators), one does need some water pressure in the shower and in the kitchen sink. So better to have shorter showers and more consciously careful dishwashing than no water pressure. Thanks again!

This site and its contributors were extremely helpful and in case you need a visual on where these restrictors can be found, here is an image of where and what to look for.
