cartridge faucet problems

atlantabraves81March 31, 2011

Hello, I was having pressure problems in my shower and removed the cartridges to flush out the lines. After replacing them water comes out at a trickle regardless to if the faucet is open of closed. It is an american standard colony 2 handle faucet. anyone have any ideas? thanks.

Not sure. Maybe the aerator is full of particles. Unscrew it from the faucet end to find out.

Sounds like the cartridge was replaced in the wrong orientation.
