 Bathroom faucet
Author: waltandra (NV)

I replaced my bathroom faucet, a moen. Before I replaced the faucet, my water only dripped out. After the installation of new faucet, I'm not getting any water. I removed line from the shutoff valve and open up valve and water shoots out but when I put it back on and open the valve there is no water in the sink. Please help.

If you have good water flow out of the supply lines that great.
Now either dissemble and find restriction in faucet or option 2
return and replace faucet and try it again.
Depending on complexity of faucet the exchange method is best
for most people

Thanks. The new faucet had some issues. I went back to the old faucet and cleaned the aerator and water is flowing again. It's probably a reason that I got the new faucet for $60 less than the original price. Thanks to all for your help.

No but I am betting the new faucet is a piece of crap. What brand is it and where did you purchase it? I am not being critical there are so many cheap, and I mean cheap products on the market. Even the old stand by brands like kohler, American Standard, etc. have a cheap line that I think are mostly sold to the Big Box stores. Spend a little more or suffer the consequences and plan on calling your Plumber more often. Like someone said recently, People will spend $100.00 going out for a family dinner but are tight on something that is supposed to last for 15 years or more. It is false economy.
