Just installed a new Price Pfister single handle kit. faucet. I purchased it from Overstock.com. To turn water on you press the single handle DOWN and to turn off pull the handle UP. Ever hear of this? Just a matter of getting use to but unusual.

Our plumber had never seen that either. Thanks. I just sent an email to Price Pfister re: the water flow. We have never had a problem w/ flow/pressure but it takes, really, 8+ min. to fill the sink. The spout is narrow but that should not be the issue? I took the aerator off and no diff. I water is turned on below the sink to the max.

Probably one of those new "water economy" types.

Anastatia, in my experience, it is harder to find a non-water saving faucet than the old fashioned kind. We recently built a new house and we had to be very specific with the plumber about that very subject. We went with Delta and we are satisfied. One wonders if the big box stores will even stock what you want. The problem is you don't know about it until you install it.

We have to have our "under the sink" plumbing re configured so a plumber will be re doing everything for us next week. Maybe we can get it addressed.

PP single handle faucets have a flow regulator inline under the sink. It's a plastic thing that CAN be removed without destroying the integrity of the faucet. I've done this for a couple of clients.
