    Low water pressure

    Remove the spray head and point the hose into the sink drain. Turn the faucet on. If you have good pressure, cal American Standard for a free replacement spray head.
    If you still have low water pressure without the spray head, ask them for a new faucet cartridge.
    After replacing the faucet cartridge, if you still have low water pressure you will need to ask for a new faucet, possibly free if yours is still under warranty.

    The hot water side has low water pressure. The

    start by making sure the valve that supplies hot water to the sink and dish washer is fully open. If there is low hot water pressure in any of the other kitchen/bathrooms, then trace the line to see where the pressure drops. If it is only in the kitchen, it should be an old valve, (causes restriction)Good Luck.

    if the pressure is good with the head off then you can probably get a new head for it u shouldn't have to change the cartrige. it sounds like the head is clogged so plastic pieces in the head to help save water "water savers" it is hard to clean them i would try changing the head u should be able to find on for a moen, u buy for looks u buy it for life. take the old head with u when u go to buy a new one so they can match it up to the right one.if you can't find it and a lowes or home deptm try a plumbing supply house

    Loss of pressure in kitchen faucet - Price Pfister

    Your problem is a simple one.

    1. Turn off water to faucet.
    2. Place a towel(s) in the base of the sink(s) to prevent any parts from going down drain.
    3. Remove the handle to the faucet. (single handle only)
    4. If not a single handle then remove spout from faucet.
    5. If a single handle remove cap carefully and any loose parts.
    6. Gently turn spout side to side while lifting to remove.
    7. You will see a hole with a very small valve where the water comes out to the spout on the base of the faucet.
    1. Remove this valve (which is a backflow preventer) and replace.
    2. Reassemble and test.
    Problem solved.
