    Default Price Pfister kitchen faucet hot water pressure issue...

    I replaced the cartridge in my 533 Genesis model single handle pull-out kitchen faucet. I am having one issue. The water pressure is slightly less when all the way hot at full blast. The water supply is turned on fully. Not sure what else to look for or trouble shoot. Any ideas?

    That is to be expected if the supply lines are the limiting factor. When running a mix of hot and cold, both lines are supplying water.

    I understand what you are saying, but I didn't have this problem before I installed the new cartridge, full pressure all around.

    Did you shut down the water for the whole house to change it. If so, you may have stirred up some sediment and have a sticky heat trap in the HWT. Happens to me sometimes.

    Nope, just turned it off at the source.

    Two other possibilities... sediment got stirred up and lodged in the cartridge or the angle stop. The angle stop may not have re-opened fully.

    The cartridge looks fine. I pulled it back out, checked it out and reinstalled. Where is the angle stop? You are talking to a total amateur lol.

    Well... I am assuming you have an angle stop. It is the shutoff at the wall under the sink. The old-style with washer can sometimes stick to the seat and not open all the way. It can also be a place for sediment to get trapped.

    Ok makes sense. That may be a little out of my league to tackle.
