I found a small set screw in back by the base of the spout. Got off the spout and cleaned it. I found your help not so much.
Expert:  duane replied 5 months ago.

did you clean out aretor and does faucet have good flow now

Expert:  duane replied 5 months ago.

if you develop leaks around bottom of spout then may need to replace small o-rings on spout /if so small amount of lube on o-rings at install will keep from breaking with use??
