316- $114... My Eye

A couple of weeks ago I turned on my kitchen faucet, it ran normally for a few seconds and then clunk! it slowed to a trickle! We have hard water here in Springville so I suspected I might have some sediment in the aerator. I cleaned it out, but got almost no improvement.

Great! Now what? Gordon said to call a plummer. *Ahh, you're killin' me, Smalls!*

So I called... $114! Are you kidding me?

316- slow faucet
BEFORE

I didn't know where I put the booklet that came with the faucet (I found it later) so I looked under the sink:
  • got the serial number
  • looked up the repair booklet at Price Pfister
  • read the cleaning instructions
  • didn't quite understand how to remove the divertor
  • called customer service
  • had a VERY good experience with knowledgeable and helpful tech
  •  found a chunk of hard water deposit
  • removed it with long nosed pliers
  • reassembled the faucet
  • stated, correctly, I ROCK!
  • called Gordon and told him he owed me $114

316- fast faucet
AFTER

EDIT- I repaired this again on 12/3/12... gotta get another water softener.
