In response to Re: Intermittent Water Flow
I assume you have Chicago, Crane, or some other model faucet which is constructed in such a way that opening it causes the stem to move downward rather than up as in conventional faucet. When these faucets develop a free moving stem, the water pressure will cause them to rise in the faucet body, turning off the flow. This is an advantage as far as keeping them shut off when that is what you want, but a nuisance when you wnat the faucet open. Depending on the make and model, you need to tighten or replace the stem packing.
