Yesterday we got to put some of our hard learned plumbing knowledge to use while visiting family for the holidays. Matt noticed that the kitchen faucet’s pullout hose doesn’t retract very well. From installing our own, we knew that there’s a weighted collar on the part of the hose that hangs down below the sink. We took a peek and saw that it had slid beyond the lowest point on the loop, so we slid it back to the side closer to the faucet. It worked. On to the guest bathroom, where the faucet lever was a little loose. Under the weight of the lever, it would fall a little during use, turning down the flow of water. To fix an issue with our kitchen faucet, I had taken it apart and discovered how to adjust that kind of faucet. An allen wrench, a screwdriver, and five minutes later, the problem was solved. The in-laws were thrilled, as their plumber had told them it was a defect in the faucet and couldn’t be fixed. They think we’re plumbing geniuses! We were glad to be able to help.
