Customer Question
My faucet does not...

My faucet does not turn on when I touch it. The water is on and I replaced the batteries. I also cleaned the filter. What can I do?

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

I can not use my faucet and truly need this.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If I can ...yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

This faucet is about 1 year old and worked great until recently

Is there no water at all and does the light turn on and off when touching the faucet?

It might not be but maybe, Do you still want to fix it or are you going to just use it as is?
