Pullout Faucets - FAQs

Q. Our plumbing store sells the SL1000 Kitchen Faucet, which is a pullout.  I have had customers ask how often they should change the aerator (screens) in their pullout faucet.  What do you recommend?
It is time to change your screen when you notice that the water streaming out of the faucet is not flowing smoothly.  Additionally if you notice an obstruction in the aerator (also known as screen).

Q. Where do I get new screens for our pullout faucets?  What information do I need to provide to ensure I get the correct screens?
Simply fill out the Contact Us form on the website and include how long you have had your faucet as well as the model #. 

Q. Can you provide other individual parts for the pullout faucet?  What information do I need to provide to ensure I get the correct parts?
Yes, the information needed is the following 1.) How long ago the faucet was purchased 2.) Whether or not the part broke and how this happened. 3.) The model # of the faucet model 4.) A picture of the part.  Please just let us know what you need by filling out our Contact Us form.

Q. How do I change the screen or filter on my pull out faucet?
You can view our VIDEO on replacing the screen in a pullout faucet.  Also, I have listed the steps below.  Hope this is a help to you.  
1. Unscrew the cap of head on pullout faucet. Remove all parts - including frame,
screen, stopper, washer, and spring.
2. Place new screen (or aerator) inside frame of center cover.
3. Place stopper over screen.
4. Place washer over stopper.
5. Place large end of spring over washer.
6. Begin screwing center section into faucet by first moving it counter-clockwise to line
up threads.
7. Screw clockwise and tighten center section onto pullout faucet

Q. What might happen if we donít change the center screens in our pullout faucets?
This may be fine depending on whether you have hard or soft water. Additionally depending on if any debris potentially gets caught in the aerator (also known as screen). If you do not change your screen of your pull out faucet, deposits may build up causing an uneven flow of water through the aerator (also known as screen).

Q. How will I know that a screen needs to be changed?
Again if you notice the water streaming out of the faucet is not flowing smoothly. Additionally if you notice an obstruction in the aerator (also known as screen)
