  • Center handle faucet shuts off

    I just installed a Price Phister single lever faucet in the kitchen sink a couple weeks ago. Now, I've noticed 2 things that I don't like.

    1. If the water is only turned on only part way, the faucet will start to shut itself off. If it's only turned on a little, it will completely shut off. It's as though the weight of the handle is enough to shut it off. (It takes very little pressure)

    2. Also, when I do try to shut it off, the water flow seems to shut off slowly...dripping for 5 or 10 seconds.

    It seems like something is loose but I don't know what.

    TIA

    kinda hard to remedy over the internet.

    can you give me the model number or a picture of the faucet? where did you get it? big box store? the products sold at the big box stores can be defective coming out of the box.

    please enclose a picture or a model number.

      Thanks for the reply. If I did it correctly, it should show 2 symptoms...
      - water pressure declines, causing faucet to go from "spray" to "stream"
      - Long drip after shut off. at least I think it's long.

      I couldn't get it to shut off by itself like my first post said...maybe I'm going crazy.

      thanks

          Another winner of 10 lbs of crap in a 5 lb bag!!! Folks take my advice: You use your faucets and fixtures everyday, multiple times per day. Spend the money on good quality fixtures and ensure 10 - 15 years of service. These are not items to be cheap about!
