    Good Afternoon, I don’t know how to describe this. We have a sink with a separate hot and cold handle. The hot water handle has been a pain in the butt for a while (getting stuck, becoming too loose, etc). We thought we fixed the issue and now have noticed the when we turn the tap, the m it...

    Our kitchen sink faucet (Rohl R77v3) keeps having flow problems. The first time, both hot & cold water slowed to a trickle. I replaced the sink hose and the problem disappeared. A couple months later, the hot water flow became weak but cold was fine. I replaced the faucet cartridge and nothing...

    Hello All, My outdoor faucet is leaking from the handle. I tried to take it apart to see if I can replace the washer but I can't seem to get it off. I took out the screw on the handle, but the handle won't come off. I also loosened the nut underneath the handle, but nothing is coming off (see...

    I must have lost a retention clip. I'm looking for a name so I don't have to rely too much on the helpers down at the hardware store.

    Hi, I have a laundry sink in the garage with a faucet that is dripping steadily. The handles screw into a separate spout. Does anyone know where I can find the handles?

    I have a Moen pulldown faucet and recently replaced my sink. Previously I had no issues with the faucet not retracting, however, now it will only retract all the way if the water is turned off. Otherwise it is stuck wherever I have pulled it out to. I Have moved the weight all over the hose...

    I recently bought this Kitchen Faucet Pull-Out Spray Head (image attached) to find out that it doesn't fit my pipe, the one I bought is a G 1/2 but it seems I need a Spray Head that has a wider thread at the end, can anyone advise what I can do...Thank you !

    Hello, I need to install a portable reverse osmosis water system. This requires the threading to be available inside the faucet. I looked in there using a mirror and there were no threads, but then I realized it's the remains of the aerator...the screen fell out a couple years ago. There was...

    Hi Everyone - I'm going to be installing a small drop-in sink on a bar top and I'm trying to figure out the positioning before I do any cutting. I do not have a lot of room to play with, and I was unable to find an all-in-one sink w/faucet holes that I liked - so I decided to purchase...

    Can someone please help me on what I should do here? My daughter was trying to take the hose off the outdoor faucet with a wrench and was going in the wrong direction! As you can see it twisted almost completely off! I shut off the main water valve. Will this be something that I can fix or...

    Hello Everybody, My first post here on DIY Chatroom! Per my thread title, I have 3 identical single handle, pull out shower faucets in a house built in 1994 that I would like to replace. New cartridges / trim are what I seek...but all three have no obvious brand name, so I am having difficulty...

    Hi there, I recently had a double sink installed and have noticed that the streams coming out of the faucets are very loud and fast. My expectation was that when the handle is only slightly pulled up, it would be a light/quiet stream that gets progressively faster as the handle is pulled...

    Hello! I just had a plumber install three new Grohe Europlus 20 302 bathroom sink faucets. One of them works fine. The other two have a lot of give on both handles. They have no give on the open/close movement, but the whole handle seems to be loosely assembled to the faucet mechanism, so that...

    Kitchen faucets were getting touchy a month ago, had to be turned on just so. Now it rarely works, no water , hot or cold most of the time, but not always. This is my sister's. She says she waits a couple of minutes and tries again, it eventually works. This is just a faucet problem, right...

    Looking to replace kitchen faucet - an Am Std "Elite" single handle, plain, arched spout faucet, bought 2004. Who makes best guts in faucets now? Looking for most durable guts, least problems. Probably 2 handle w/ reasonably high goose neck. No "pull out", no electronics, no flashing lights...

    The pull-out faucet house in my kitchen sink is leaking. Went to HD to get a replacement kit and got one that "fits all faucet brands." However when I removed the old line - the connection don't look anything like any of the various adapters in the kit. Tried to identify the make of the faucet...

    Finally got around to changing that old laundry faucet. But of course, ran into a problem. I cannot get the union fittings to move at all highlighted in the picture. And before anyone says "I need to remove the nuts below first." I did that already and got stuck afterwards. This picture was...

    I have an unbranded(well, there's a "rona collections" sticker on the base, but thats just the seller, not the manufacturer) faucet in my bathroom that has started leaking at the handle a few weeks ago. I was able to remove the handle to *see* the cylinder, but i cant figure out how to...

    I am looking for a new kitchen faucet. I do not want a really tall faucet, since I have a smaller kitchen and it would block my window. I do want one tall enough to get tall pots under to wash though. I am used to the separate spray and extremely good water pressure/flow. I have used faucets...
