I'm working on replacing my moen kitchen faucet cartridge. I got a cartridge puller, but it only pulled the stem out and not the whole cartridge. How do I get the rest out?

I have a Kohler kitchen faucet (single handle) and the cold

I have a Kohler kitchen faucet (single handle) and the cold water coming out of the spout is virtually non-existent. I swapped the hoses at the shut off valves (hot and cold valves) and the problem reversed (hot adjustment on the lever now gave a very poor flow but the cold adjustment now gave a good flow). With this test, it is clearly not the shut off valves that are the problem. Just above the cold water shut off valve is a stop valve for the refrigerator ice maker and its tubing has excellent water flow flow. The problem, then, appears to be a faulty or clogged cold water hose (attached to the faucet fixture) or perhaps something in the faucet lever valve.JA: What's the make and model? And can you guesstimate how old it is?Customer: I do not know the model but it is about three years oldJA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: Deprnds. I am an older person and myJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: Yes, how do I disconnect the hose where it meets the fixture? It is not a conventional fitting.

The kitchen hot water side for the faucet has a very low

The kitchen hot water side for the faucet has a very low rate of pressure, cold side has a good rate of pressure or maybe good. the rest of the house has normal pressure. We had a salt water equipment to soften the water. This came with the house, we used it for a day or two, then unplugged it because it slowed the water pressure on hot water side of kitchen. Now we had decent pressure when not using the salt water softener in kitchen, but not as good as the rest of home. Now we have removed the tank, and we have the same problem just like it was hooked up. Low water pressure for hot water side. Live in a hard water area. The water heater tank is in basement below kitchen sink area.Sharon

My Delta kitchen faucet was installed new last year at a

Hi,My Delta kitchen faucet was installed new last year at a vacation rental property. It's on a stainless steel sink. A thin bead of sealant was put around the base.This year, there is some mildew behind the sealant. I was told to scrub it with hydrogen peroxide. That did nothing.I would like to remove the bead of sealant entirely. I will need to remove the faucet, though to avoid scratching it.Is that a project an amateur like me can do? I suppose I have to turn off he water to the house, which is fine if needed.Faucet is the single handle kind.Thanks.Holly

I rent out a home in AZ and have a property manager to take

I rent out a home in AZ and have a property manager to take care of it. Recently I received a statement that was paid to a maintenance company for installing a new kitchen faucet on June 20, 2016. A new kitchen faucet was installed July 6, 2015 by the same company. This is less than a year. Isn't there a warranty on this? I noted that most faucets are warranted for lifetime. I don't know what kind was installed. I have sent e-mail to my property manager to check on this. If tenant damaged the faucet then it is his responsibility to pay for it. What is your take on this?
