Glacier Bay Faucet issues/one way valve troubleshooting

4058 Views 8 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  RNB
I have a Glacier Bay all in one sink/faucet with low water pressure and am looking at that one way valve as possible culprit. I'd like to check it as there was nothing in the aerator.

Sink I have: Glacier-Bay-All-in-One-Dual-Mount-Stainless-Steel-33-in-2-Hole-Double-Bowl-Kitchen-Sink-VT3322G2

My issue is my hot water shut off valve needs replacing, and with the current virus situation, I'm not crazy about getting someone to replace it. I can turn the cold water valve off OK, but when I try the hot it hisses and drips, and allows water through the faucet still.

So, I am not sure if that black hose is going to spray water everywhere if I pull that one way valve off to see if anything is in there and remove those restrictors mentioned in the prior thread. I cannot tell how it routes under the sink very well.

Do I need to shut off water or can that valve be safely removed without?

Here is an old locked thread with a similar situation as this identifying the restrictors and the valve for reference.
Here is what I took.

This is the one way valve on the black tubing that routes both in and out of the faucet.

Black hose routing:
I pulled the black and blue one way valve on the sprayer line was no problem removing. We have had water issues in our house in the past, and are just ultra cautious...

Inside the valve were two restrictors:

Inside one of the restrictors was a bunch of sediment that was causing the water pressure issue:

Water pressure restored!

Stay safe!

Once this virus situation is over, we'll definitely be replacing the shutoff valves. But that is a bit bigger of a job I'm comfortable doing, so our handyman will be doing that.
