The problem I had that affected water flow was the drain hose from the faucet got built up with water grime and so the water flow was affected and started destroying my faucet (different model). With this faucet I have a clear drain hose installed so I can see when I need to replace it (just be careful not to damage the ports of the faucet as they are fragile and can break off the faucet).

Thank you for your question. Although we just service the faucet, we do know that if you have a Filtration System and the filter is old, it can effect the flow to the faucet. We suggest you follow the Filtration System’s Manufacture recommended instructions on when to change the filters for optimum performance from both the system and the faucet.

Thank you for your question. That hole on the side of the unit is there to supply the air for the air gap lines you have attached for your filtration system. That is just a hollowed out space so if you are getting a sound coming from that area, the sound is coming from one of the lines that you have attached. Check those lines and make sure you have them set up to run freely and straight. Figuring out what line is making the noise will correct that noise issue.

Often, when the drinking water faucet is turned on, water flows out of the small hole in the side of the base of the faucet. The installation is on a reverse osmosis system.

I have the same issue as Rafa, as soon as i installed this faucet for my RO system, it immediately started coming out of the small hole in the side. I have a short drain line to my sink, and after the reserve tank filled it came out of the faucet, but is still pouring out of this hole in the side. Only way to stop it is to turn off the main water valve. Is there supposed to be a plug for this hole in the kit? If so i did not find one. Let me know what next steps should be.

If the filtration system used is a simple system
with one outlet and is not a reverse osmosis system
that requires a drain, then skip to step 4.
If a drain line is required to run through the
faucet's integral air gap for a reverse osmosis
(RO) system, connect the 1/4" drain line from the
unit to the smaller barb on the the bottom of the
faucet. Connect the 3/8" line from the faucet to
the drain. This drain line works by gravity. Make it
as short and straight as possible, with no dips or
loops.

All reverse osmosis systems I have installed have a drain to flush the impurities. If your system has a drain already and a fresh water supply, the output from the reverse osmosis system would feed directly into the threaded 3/8 inch line in the base of the faucet. In this case only one line would be connected to the faucet and the two barrbed connectors, 3/8 and 1/4, would have no connections.

We do not have a water filter faucet now...Just a kitchen faucet, but we want purified water to drink. Is there something I need to buy a filter of some sort to put underneath the sink/cabinets? To hook up with this faucet? BTW, we are getting new countertops and so they will make a hole for the faucet to fit. Thanks

I installed the one 3/8" line from my RO to the tap. It turns on and off and works good. But left in the off position water pools to the end of the tap and will slightly drip...I'd estimate 3 drops overnight. If I close off those 2 air valves under the tap will that stop that? I dont understand because the tap is off and I cant imagine the seal being bad since it is brand new?

Closing off the other ports will not have any affect on the dripping. It is possible that there is a defect with the seal. I would take the tap apart and check the seat and the seal. If there is a problem, I would take it back for another one.

I installed mine over a year ago and have had no problems. I also only used the 3/8 connection which is connected to my Instapure water system.

Question

Is the Air Gap on this faucet used only for the filtration system, or can it REPLACE the Air Gap already installed for my dishwasher?

Asked by
Mimaw
California
about Single-Handle Replacement Filtration Faucet in Stainless Steel on
January 30, 2014
I just realized I may not understand what the Air Gap feature for this water filter faucet is used for. My contractor's expert plumber said he'd never installed a drinking faucet with an air gap, and wanted me to get one so he could study how it works. My sink has three of the four holes punched out, which are being used for the main faucet (one handle, one hole), a spray nozzle, and an air gap for the dishwasher. I was thinking the Air Gap feature on this drinking faucet for the filtration system would replace the air gap for the dishwasher, which would mean I wouldn't have to punch out the fourth hole on my sink. To do so would make the placement too crowded and affect the function of the faucets and sprayer. Maybe the reason my contractor and his plumbers haven't done this before - used an air gap drinking faucet to replace the air gap for the dishwasher, so that hole does double duty - is because that ISN'T the way it works... Please HELP! Thanks~
