Had water shut off outside main today. When water restored couldn’t get the Pfister handsfree or manual flow to work? Changed batteries and disconnected power to “rebut “. Still nothing?

Assuming the faucet has an aerator, unscrew it and check for debris in it. It's not uncommon for the aerator to become clogged when shutting off the water supply and turning it on again. In the future, when the water has been turned off at the main or the street, remove aerators before turning on the water at the fixtures again and running the water. Dishwashers, icemakers, toilets, and other appliances may also experience problems. It takes major contamination to clog a fixture valve.

SOURCE: slow water flow on Whirlpool Gold 25.6 cubic

The water line tap may be screwed back into the water line or you did not sufficiently poke a hole into the water line with the tap. We had the same problem. Shut off the water supply, remove the tap from the line and check the size of the hole. my bet is the hole is very small. Either drill out the hole with a drill and replace the tap (with a new rubber grommet) or add a tee into the line with the proper size compression fitting (that is what we did) and the water will flow freely..

SOURCE: no water flow to the humififier

I've been working on the Aprilaire 110 unit today, after encountering the same problem. Here's how I fixed it: First, with the humidistat turned to 0%, I turned off the water supply saddle valve all the way (all the way to the right)--and then turned it back on all the way (all the way left). Still no water flow. Second, I slightly loosened the inline valve nut on the discharge side of the solenoid on the side of the 110 unit. Water began flowing, so I tightened it back up; and now the water flows freely. Conclusion: You may have some mineral deposit buildup in your lines, as I apparently did.

My pipes in bathroom burst 2 days ago so I shut off water, today fixed pipes they are fine now but when I turned the handle for the main the water didn't come back on at all! there isnt even a trickle...

Sounds like a dropped gate valve. meaning the part that blocks the water flow has broken from the valve stem and handle. You will need to turn off the supply to your main, usually a curb box outside to remove and replace the gate. I would suggest replacing the gate valve with an appropriate ball valve to avoid this happening in the future.
good luck!

Pfister f0264cbs repair schematic

I'd look at the water shut off valve that the faucet is connected to coming out of the wall. In time the rubber washer that shuts off the water flow will deteriorate enough to cause part of it to travel up line and partially block the faucet.

Price Pfister hot water runs slow

Check the supply line and valve to see if any dirt or foreign.matter got into the line or valve when you changed out your faucet. if this is not the problem you may have a faulty faucet. You may be able to back flush the faucet with a garden hose by leaving the hot side open, but you will get wet. If you used Teflon tape on the supply line and it is a compression fitting, some of the tape could be blocking the water. for more info go to

You have already checked the two obvious things now make sure the two supply lines from the shut off valves are not kinked or turned it such away as to close off the water flow. If that is ok then there may be some debris in the internal filter screens.

Keep in mind that this faucet design will not put water out at a high pressure if it did it would splash all over the place.

I have the same problem with my Ashfield faucet.
I am going to contact Price Pfister and try to get a new 'cartridge'.

On another note, my Ashfield towel rings are also broken. The connection where the two pieces meet is so weak it cannot handle daily use. I am going to bring this up with Pfister as well.

It doesn't seem like Price Pfister has very good products.

Just purchased the Price Pfister 42-YP. The hot water has limited water - just a trickle. What can i do to adjust?

Hi, David pressuming the water flow was good before you put in this new tap, then other than a problem with the tap! have you checked if you have an isolater valve on the pipe work under the unit, if so check that it is fully opened?
Thanks Paul.

I installed Series 26 Avalon faucet. The water flow rate is very slow. All fittings to the faucet are new. Could the problem be a faulty valve ?

Remove and clean the Price Pfister aerator. Turn the water on after you remove the aerator and check the flow-rate. Many new Lavatory and kitchen faucets are now equipped with Eco friendly water saver aerators. if the flow is normal without the aerator, the faucet is OK. if you want more water flow from your lavatory faucet, you will need to buy one of the old style high flow aerators from your hardware store. If you remove the aerator and still get low pressure from both hot and cold faucets, you may need to replace the faucet. Call the Price Pfister warranty phone number that came with your faucet.

No I don't think so, but if you remove the areator from the spout I'm sure you will find the screen plugged with sedenent. Rinse and replace should be fine.

Price Pfister Shower--No water to shower

Does the tub spout water flow stop when the shower knob is pulled?

Was the systems pipping flushed before the shower head was installed?

It may be clogged, remove the shower head and then attempt to operate. If it is clogged you will see debris trapped in the screen at its connection point. The shower head can be disassembled - cleaned - reassembled

Is the shower head an adjustable type, that may be in the off position?

Good luck
