Low water flow through Moen kitchen faucet
Posted by Stephen W. Lipscomb on April 27, 1999 at 20:56:48:
I live in town and have city water with good pressure through out the house. However, the water flow through the Moen kitchen faucet is so low that it almost useless. The kitchen dishwasher is tied to the same undersink source and experiences no problems. A licensed home inspector told us that an inline water filter needed to be replaced. However, I got under the sink and determined that the inline filter is just sitting under the sink and is not installed. The kitchen faucet is feed both hot and cold water directly by risers from the shut off valves to the faucet. I turned the shutoffs completely off and then back on with no improvement in flow. I attempted to disassemble the faucet to see if there might be an internal setting and was unsucessful. How can I increase the flow (and the pressure of the flow) through the Moen kitchen faucet?
